Gingival (gum) recession can occur for a variety or reasons, such as periodontal disease, malocclusion (bite problems), and aggressive toothbrushing. When recession of the gum occurs, the body loses its natural defense against bacterial penetration and trauma and often exposes the tooth to be sensitive to hot and cold foods.

The graft procedures are highly predictable and results in stable, healthy tissue protecting the tooth. There are numerous different types of grafting techniques.
