What Is Gum Recession Treatment?

Receding gums resulting in an uneven gumline can expose your tooth roots, affecting your smile’s appearance and creating tooth sensitivity. This condition also can make you more susceptible to tooth and bone loss and dental decay. Patients of all ages can experience receding gums; it's not just part of aging. At Patrick V. Nicosia D.D.S., M.S., Inc., we offer gum recession treatment for patients in Houston, TX to return gums – and the rest of the mouth – to health. Our treatments for receding gums will:

  • Halt further gum recession
  • Cover exposed tooth roots, reducing sensitivity
  • Restore your smile’s healthy appearance
  • Help prevent tooth and bone loss
  • Make you less prone to tooth decay

If your gums are receding, call us today.

Your consultation at Patrick V. Nicosia D.D.S., M.S., Inc. will begin with an evaluation of your gums. Dr. Nicosia will provide you with all the information you need about treatment options. We use two different techniques to treat gum recession. We can use a traditional gum graft from the roof of the mouth to replace your missing gum tissue. The procedure is moderately invasive, but we offer sedation dentistry for those who request it. Dr. Nicosia also is certified to perform a procedure called the Allen Tunnel Technique. This minimally invasive procedure involves creating a tiny tunnel in the gums where the recession has occurred and then embedding the grafted tissue into the tunnel, improving blood flow at the roots to expedite healing time.

I have been a patient of Dr Nicosia for 30 years and I am not going anywhere. He treat my family and friends in the best way that no doctor ever has.The best doctor who cares for his patients and who runs an office in a most professional way. He is a perfectionist in his profession and a friend to his patient. We love him and everyone in his office. Thank you Dr Nicosia for keeping our teeth and mouth in such top condition.

Dr. Nicosia is "go-to" for anything That is unexplainable...he not only explains the issue..of course he remedies the issue! I have been his patient now since 2013 between teeth cleaning with Cindy the hygienist and the assistants of Dr. Nicosia. I see them treating all of their patients with respect and most importantly appreciation.
