Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

Orthodontist eval: The expert to consult with should be an orthodontist. They use pictures and X-rays to evaluate the jaw bones and the bite. By viewing these diagnostic tools, they can advise and give an opinion of what treatment would be most beneficial.

Receding gums: Gum tissue recedes primarily from trauma. The trauma may be teeth grinding, aggressive tooth brushing or irritants like chewing tobacco or smoking. Moving the gum tissue back to position is possible through a procedure like you mentions but sometimes requires a graft or donor site to replace the missing gum tissue. This procedure does require healing time and critical care afterward.

Limits of Medicaid: Hopefully you're not in discomfort but I'm assuming you've been to a dentist where you know you need 3 root canals. Unfortunately, I don't believe root canals are a benefit for medicaid. Please discuss your situation with a local dentist to give you some possible solutions and a plan for your treatment.
