Say bye to gum pain.

Your gums can recede over time or due to orthodontics, over-brushing, or other factors leaving tooth roots exposed. We can help fix the problem with a gum graft or regeneration.

Gum Grafting & Soft Tissue Regeneration in Cary, NC

Gums can recede due to orthodontic work, over-brushing, genetics or other factors, leaving areas of exposed tooth root. Stanley Dentistry is able to perform gum surgery, and oral surgery procedure at our office in Cary, North Carolina.

How does gum grafting work?

Gum grafting is a type of surgical procedure to cover an area of exposed tooth root with grafted oral tissue. This type of procedure helps to prevent further root exposure, decrease or eliminate sensitivity, decrease the likelihood of root cavities and will improve the general look of the mouth. Often, patients do not notice gum recession, but if not treated it can lead to tooth loss.

How long will gum grafting take?

The procedure can be done within a few hours with the aid of IV or oral sedation.

Am I a good fit for gum grafting?

Gum grafting is a common gum procedure that is needed to protect your teeth from damaging gum recession. We can determine if you are a good candidate for gum grafting during your visit.

Soft-Tissue Regeneration

If the thought of tissue “grafting” seems too severe, Stanley Dentistry has a wonderful alternative. To build up the gum line or restore gum tissue where it has been lost, we use AlloDerm, a collagen that is applied to our gums and helps to regenerate gum tissue. AlloDerm can be used for a variety of procedures, including soft tissue ridge augmentation and increasing gum depth. You may need Soft Tissue Regeneration if you have a gummy or toothy smile, receding gums, or oral ulcers.
