Gum recession is the movement of gums away from teeth, leading to long tooth appearance.
This occurs due to gum infections, wrong brushing technique, vigorous brushing force and
some factitious habits. Problems due to gum recession include teeth sensitivity, exposed
roots, higher chance of root decay and poor appearance.
To treat receding gums, many types of gum grafting procedureshave been developed. These
include free gingival graft, connective tissue graft, pedicle grafts, use of additive like
membranes with grafting surgery and advanced techniques like VISTA, Pinhole method.
