Why You Need to Cover an Exposed Root

Posted on 6/22/2020 by Sean Saghatchi
Why You Need to Cover an Exposed RootExposed roots are usually not a common problem, but when they happen, you are going to know it is happening. When the gums start to recede, if you develop an abscess, have gum disease, or wind up with any other issue, then you need to think about covering any tooth root that has become exposed. This is uncomfortable for everyone, but it is a problem that we can address and provide help with. You shouldn't have to deal with exposed roots in your mouth. Speak with us for help.

Covering Exposed Roots in the Mouth

Sensitivity is very common in those that have exposed roots. Discomfort when you eat or drink anything hot or cold is also common. It is important to think about what we can do to help you cover up these roots so you can comfortably eat and drink.
Getting grafts can be used to fix the issue. They cover the area your natural gums once covered, and they heal in place, essentially replacing the gum tissue you have lost. This helps prevent discomfort, plus it also helps you feel more confident when you smile.
Speak with us today regarding any and all dental issues you are faced with. When you are battling exposed roots or other issues, it can become a problem if you do not get them taken care of. This is because you don't want to live with the discomfort or have the issues become worse. When your roots are exposed, you are also more vulnerable to an infection in the gum tissue you have left, and in the root of the tooth. Not only would this be more painful, but it could also cost you your tooth. Schedule an appointment, so we can take a look and figure out what procedures will help.
