If your gums have receded heavily, your dentist could recommend that you have gum grafting done to repair the tissue. Heavily recessed gums can cause the roots of your teeth to become exposed which can eventually lead to tooth loss.
During a gum graft surgery, your dentist will remove a piece of healthy gum tissue from the roof of your mouth or a healthy portion of gums. Next, the healthy gum tissue is attached to the affected area, where it heals and merges with the healthy tissue around it.
