Esthetic improvement and reversal of gum loss.

Elegant and natural gum replacement of unsightly tooth recession when smiling.
When recession of the gum occurs, the body loses a natural defense against both trauma and bacterial penetration. When gum recession is a problem, gum reconstruction using grafting techniques is an option. To repair the gum damage and prevent further dental problems, a gum tissue graft may be needed. A gum graft may be necessary to protect your teeth from the damaging effects of gum recession, or you may choose to have one to improve the appearance of your smile. Dr. Bramanti’s clinical expertise encompasses precision gum repair therapies and beautiful gum replacement procedures resulting in unparalleled esthetic results.
Gum grafting replaces the lost gum and thin tissues with a thicker robust gum.
Gum replacement procedures are a conventional way to cover unsightly, sensitive, or exposed root surfaces and to prevent future gum recession. If you are unhappy with the appearance of long, unsightly teeth, this can be greatly improved by skillful gum graft procedures performed by Dr. Bramanti. Call today for a consultation and regain your lost gums and improve your smile.
Reversal of tooth damage and gum loss.
Gum loss with root damage can be reversed with precision gum grafting.
Gum recession with root ditching can be repaired with meticulous gum grafting.
When there is only minor recession, some healthy gum often remains and protects the tooth, so that no treatment other than modifying home care practices is necessary.
However, when gum recession is more advanced, the first line of defense against bacterial tissue penetration is lost. When significant, gum recession can predispose to worsening recession and expose the root surface, which is softer than enamel, leading to root cavities, root gouging and ditching.
Repair of multiple teeth showing gum loss.
Even when exposed roots are covered by composites, methodical gum grafting can improve the esthetics and protection of the root surfaces.
Isolated tooth gum loss can be returned to a natural form with great esthetics.

The gum graft procedure is highly predictable and results in a stable, healthy band of attached tissue around the tooth to protect the roots from food impaction and traumatic brushing.
