Removal of Decay and Root Coverage With a Tunneling Connective Tissue Graft

Our patient had a deep notch and decay in the root of her bicuspid tooth. In the past this would have been treated with a white plastic (composite) filling. These fillings need periodic replacement and allow for continuing gum recession, which can eventually cause loss of the tooth. We prefer to remove the decay and place a connective tissue graft. After healing there is only a small amount of enamel staining present, and the tooth no longer needs a filling. The root has be re-covered with gum tissue. Good as new!

Every patient is unique and we strive to create comprehensive treatment plans tailored to you.
