Gum Graft Treatment Types

Posted on 12/5/2022 by Evan
Gum Graft Treatment TypesToday's dentists and experts face gum disease on a regular basis. Soft tissue disorders typically necessitate oral surgery after visiting a hygienist or periodontist. The kind of gum graft you require is determined by the seriousness of your situation and the cause for it.

Gum Flap Surgery

When gum disease worsens and bacteria spreads beneath the soft tissue, a periodontist may recommend this form of therapy. It includes lifting the tissue and then cleaning contaminated regions to lessen the chance of future issues and to prevent severe side effects such as tooth and bone loss. The gums are then sealed to assist gum fixation.

Soft Tissue Grafting

One of the most noticeable signs of periodontal disease is gum recession. Your tooth root and structure may become exposed as a result, increasing your risk of infection and pain. To avoid worse problems, a periodontist can take tissue from the roof of your mouth and move it to a different area and attach it. This will prevent additional gum recession by covering the tooth roots that are exposed.

Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening treats both gum disease and aesthetic concerns. A gummy grin is produced by an excess of soft tissue, which causes teeth to seem small and stubby. A periodontist will remove the extra gum tissue to expose more of the tooth root, which can be more difficult to clean and preserve. This can be highly beneficial when you have less tooth structure and want a tailored restoration.

Gum Regeneration

Depending on the severity of your infection, your periodontist may want to perform gum regeneration or gum flap surgery. Rather than affixing soft tissues to your teeth, the purpose of this procedure is to enable them to recover naturally. After your gums are folded back, a bone graft is inserted in the region to encourage tissue recovery and offer a healthier and improved appearance.
