Gum recession on tongue side of teeth. Any method to fix?
Doctor Answers 2
I have experienced great success with grafting the tongue side gingiva with connective tissue obtained from the roof of your mouth. Although I rarely use this donor site, I have found it to be most predictable for the lingual aspect of the lower anterior gingiva.
Gum recession on the tongue side
gum recession on root of teerh facing the tongue could be fixed with same gum graft techniques that is used to fix the side facing the lips and cheeks
It is more technique sensitive. Root coverage results are not as predictable. But the tissue could be made thicker and attached to the roots to prevent further recession and bone loss
You will need to see an experienced periodontist.
