A common sign of periodontal disease is gum recession. When gums recede, they create pockets where bacteria and plaque can build up. Depending on the severity of your condition, Dr. Shelly Montes of Montes Periodontics & Implant Dentistry may recommend a gum tissue graft. After cleaning out any pockets, our doctor will graft in healthy tissue to restore your even, healthy gum line. We invite you to contact us at 770-781-3685 and schedule an appointment to see if you require gum tissue grafting in Cumming, Georgia.
