Gum Grafting Miami Beach, FL
Restore Smile Aesthetics with Gum Grafting
Treatment to Return Gums to a Healthy, Attractive State
Gum recession is a natural part of the aging process, but certain factors and habits can cause gums to recede at a much faster rate. Teeth with gum recession may appear longer and may be more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures because of the exposed tooth roots. While many patients are concerned mostly with the unsightliness of receding gums, untreated gum recession can also cause loose teeth from lack of tissue support and even tooth loss if too much recession occurs! The best solution for treating gum disease is gum grafting. While often thought of as painful and invasive, modern gum grafting techniques work to make this surgical procedure as comfortable and atraumatic as possible. Our in-house periodontist specializes in the issues related to the soft tissues, including gum recession, and is experienced in treating patients with receding gums. He is highly skilled at minimally invasive gum grafting techniques that return gums back to a healthy and attractive state. To ensure your appointment is as comfortable as possible, we also provide sedation options, should you feel anxious about your treatment.
Common Causes of Gum Recession
Specialized Gum Recession Treatment
Gum grafting from our Miami Beach, FL periodontist is a routine procedure that offers predictable and effective results. Using a sample of gum tissue from your palate or a donor source, we gently position the new tissue over the exposed tooth roots. When in an ideal position, the area is sutured and allowed to heal. During the healing process, the tissues will fuse together, creating a stronger and more aesthetic position around the teeth. Many patients feel concerned about pain during the procedure and length of healing times. We fully numb the treatment site before we begin and take a gentle approach to cause the least amount of tissue trauma during the procedure. Most patients fully recover from gum grafting in 1-2 weeks, though you will be able to return to normal activity and work the day after surgery. If you need gum grafting in Miami Beach, FL you have nothing to worry about! Our experienced team will help you feel comfortable and relaxed and will provide safe, effective treatment for your gum recession.
