Gum recession after Dental Implants

It is difficult to answer this without photos or xrays.  If an area requires bone grafting to cover an exposed implant surface, it often also requires a soft tissue graft.  If the implants are not exposed and the area is not in an esthetic area then nothing may need to be done.  Seek the advice of a board certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon
