Protect your teeth and your smile
Have you begun to notice that your gum line is changing? Maybe your teeth look longer or you can see dark notch at your gum line. These are the visible signs of gum recession.
Gum recession occurs when your gum tissue pulls away from the tooth surface, where it normally fits snugly. Receding gums have an aging affect, detracting from your smile and making you look older than you are. Mount Kisco Periodontics can restore healthy, attractive gum lines with a gum graft in Mt. Kisco, NY. Gum grafts are gum recession treatments that allow Dr. Kantor and Dr. DiGiacinto to transfer gum tissue from one area of your mouth to another.

Drs. Kantor and DiGiacinto perform connective-tissue grafts, a commonly performed gum recession treatment, known to be safe and effective. With a connective-tissue gum graft, your periodontist will collect donor tissue from the palate and transfer it to the treatment site, covering the exposed tooth root. In a relatively short amount of time, the new tissue integrates, restoring your gum line. Schedule your consultation for a gum graft in Mt. Kisco, NY to learn whether you are a good candidate for this gum recession treatment.
While gum recession can be attributed to a number of factors, the most common is gum disease. Drs. Kantor and DiGiacinto can determine and treat the source of your recession to ensure that your beautifully restored smile remains healthy and protected after your gum recession treatment.
