The foundation of a healthy smile

Root coverage without using a gum graft


Sometimes the exposed root of a tooth can be covered without using a gum graft.

If there is sufficient solid gum tissue next to the exposed root, the gum can simply be moved over the root to cover it. In such instances, a product that promotes the binding of the gum to the tooth can be used.

Your periodontist will let you know if this technique is appropriate for you.

CAP annual meeting

Will be held May 25-27, 2017 at the Delta Ottawa City Centre, in Ottawa, Ontario.
