Sensitivity and Gum Grafting
Sometimes gum recession leads to severe sensitivity resistant to common desensitizing techniques. The severe sensitivity affects lifestyle and daily comfort. If all else fails, a gum graft is considered. There are different type of grafts that are used for different reasons. Some prevent further recession from occurring and others are used to replace missing gum tissue to cover the exposed root surfaces. Your dental professional will be able to advise you on whether you are a suitable candidate for a graft, and which procedure would best address your concerns.
