Improve Your Smile

When the gum has receded beyond the crown and the root is showing, it is often desirable to re-cover the root surface. This is primarily done for cosmetics, but also if there is root sensitivity. There may also be a lack of attached (hard) gum tissue, and our root coverage surgery is designed to correct that problem at the same time.

The dentists at Boca Perio Implants have had extensive training and experience in the areas of root coverage1. We also utilize the industry’s highest quality materials and standards of care. This means you can relax with the knowledge that you are in safe hands!
