Numerous people have exposed root surfaces for various reasons. The exposed roots can result in sensitivity to hot or cold, compromised aesthetics, and potential progressive wear of roots and tooth structure.
There are various treatment options to address root surfaces. The sooner treatment is initiated after the root exposure is observed, the more predictable the treatment becomes. Furthermore, treatments can reduce the risk of future exposures.
Certain tissue forms and resilience can predict future recessions. Teeth considered as having a high risk of future root exposures can be treated to prevent future exposures. This generally involves increasing the keratinized tissue and gingival attachment.
