Exposed Tooth Roots

Posted on Feb 16, 2015 by William J. Claiborne, DDS MS

Gum recession causes the tooth root to become exposed, which can make your teeth look long. Recession can occur as a result of a variety of causes, including periodontal diseases.  Whatever the reason, exposed roots are unappealing and also create risk for developing cavities.

Gum grafting can cover exposed roots, reduce further gum recession and protect vulnerable roots from decay. Call (828) 274-9440 to schedule a consultation to discuss your options and have your questions answered thoroughly.
