Quite often, children experience many of the same periodontal problems as adults. Fortunately, Dr. Tomlin has the experience to work well with our young patients and their families to deliver first class, age-appropriate periodontal care.
Connective Tissue Graft
If the gums have receded or are expected to recede after orthodontic treatment, this procedure is useful for reversing, correcting or preventing recession. Untreated gum recession typically leads to cold sensitivity, tender gums during brushing, worn or abraded root surfaces, and even root decay. Dr. Tomlin performs this procedure by obtaining a tiny piece of connective tissue from the palate and then attaching it to the targeted area.
