For years, both my dentist and hygienist had mentioned tissue-grafting for my gums. I had heard several stories of it being painful, etc. Finally, I had gotten to a point where my recession was causing sensitivity and I didn't like the look of it. Based on the referral from my dentist, and his reputation, my surgery was performed by Dr. Dan Murphy. They made me comfortable asking questions and gave me even more confidence with both their answers and my results. I appreciated the follow up care, as well. I feel lucky that I had such a good experience, with managed pain/swelling and only mild discomfort at my donor-site (the roof of my mouth). And I'm so happy with my results: healthy gums that look nice and natural.
