Gum, or gingival, recession occurs when the gum tissue pulls away from the tooth leaving an exposed root surface. This root surface can be sensitive to cold, hot and sweets. It can also be an esthetic problem. When gum recession is a problem, gum reconstruction using grafting techniques is an option.
