One of the most common problems associated with periodontal disease is gum recession. Gum tissue can also be lost through trauma or over-aggressive brushing. Without a healthy amount of gum tissue, your smile is vulnerable to tooth decay, tooth loss and other problems. Our dentist, Dr. Tonique Reynolds-Morgan, may suggest an appointment for a soft tissue graft in Lawrenceville, Georgia.
