Recently found out I have significant gum recession. My dentist of 20 years first says he does not recommend the gum grafting surgery as often people have to have it repeated in a few years.
Without going into the lengthy details of my story, I am very upset with my dentist. He recommends I see a periodontist and now after doing X-rays (which cost me $175.00) is thinking I need gum grafts on 6 of my lower teeth.
I know the expense will be great as I do not have dental insurance. I am more concerned about the pain, recovery time and possible complications, not to mention the possibility that it might not a success and would have to have the surgery repeated.
Has anyone has this procedure and care to share stories?
