Who Needs a Gum Graft?
Posted on 10/15/2018 by ROOT™ Periodontal and Implant Center
There are many different types of oral surgery procedures that you can turn to improve your oral health and your appearance. One of the procedures is a gum graft. There are several different types of gum grafts that our oral surgeons use. There are also a few different reasons that you would need a gum graft. The Reasons for a Gum GraftThe most common reason for a gum graft is because of gum recession. Gum recession occurs when the gums start to pull back and gaps form between the gums and teeth. There are several reasons for gum recession, including age, some medical conditions, trauma and poor oral hygiene. Gum recession can lead to problems that include gum disease, tooth loss and change in your appearance. You can turn to a gum graft if you experience any of the problems associated with gum recession. If you suffer from gingivitis or periodontal disease, a gum graft can help repair the damage. If you want to improve your smile that has changed because of gum recession, a gum graft can provide the solution. Not everyone that is dealing with gum recession needs a gum graft. Deciding Who is a CandidateWhen it comes to receding gums, the earlier a person seeks treatment the more options they have. It is possible to stop gum recession with good oral hygiene habits and professional cleaning by our dental professionals. It is also possible to reverse the issues of gum disease when it is caught early. The time to turn to gum grafts is when the other forms of treatment are not a good option. People that have waited too long to manage their receding gums can still use gum grafts to fix their problems. Our dental professionals can help evaluate your issues with gum recession and can help you decide if a gum graft is the right solution for you. Once you get all the information about the condition of your gums, you can make an informed decision. Contact our dental professionals to help you learn more about gum grafts and whether this is something that can help you. Schedule your appointment today....
