Root Coverage

When the gum has receded beyond the crown and the root is showing, it is often desirable to re-cover the root surface. This is primarily done for cosmetics, but also if there is root sensitivity. There may also be a lack of attached (hard) gum tissue, and our root coverage surgery is designed to correct that problem at the same time.

Several different materials and multiple procedures can be utilized for root coverage. At perioboca, we will examine your individual situation and recommend the best options for your health and beauty.
