Gum Grafts in Hackensack, NJ

If your gums pull away from your teeth, it not only looks unattractive, but it also creates oral health risks. Left untreated, it will ultimately cause tooth loss. At Summit Dental, our team can perform gum grafts in Hackensack so your smile looks healthy – and actually is healthier too.

A gum graft procedure will:

  • Cover tooth roots exposed by gum recession to protect them from decay
  • Prevent tooth and bone loss
  • Conceal unsightly roots so your smile looks more attractive
  • Stop dental sensitivity, a common result of receding gums

Can you see your tooth roots, or do your teeth look longer than they used to? You may have gum recession. Call us today at 201-366-7001 for an appointment with one of our dentists.

Receive Gum Care From a Highly Trained Team

Our team has advanced training that helps us:

  • Specialize in preventing, diagnosing, and treating gum disease, a common cause of receding gums
  • Use hands-on experience with gum grafting and similar procedures

There are several different ways to perform a gum graft, and we will determine which one will work best for you. A grafting procedure usually involves removing tissue from another area of your mouth and transferring it to your gums.

Stop Gum Disease With Preventive Care

While our team can restore your gum health, it’s easier to stop gum disease before it occurs. This involves a combination of good oral hygiene at home and regular visits to our office for exams and cleanings. To prevent gum disease:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day, and use a fluoride toothpaste
  • Floss every day
  • Don’t smoke
  • Avoid sugary and acidic foods as much as possible; rinse your mouth after eating them
