A gum graft is necessary if you have gum disease. Severe Periodontal Disease, known as Periodontitis, is the more serious form of gingivitis, and if left untreated will damage gums, which could lead to tooth loss.
Why is Gum Grafting Necessary?
Ocean Front Dental may suggest gum surgery for periodontal disease if your teeth and gums are separating, or receding. If you require gum surgery, you will be able to see the roots of the teeth because of gum recession.
Gum recession is quite common, but according to Dr. Nick Seddon, should not be left untreated. Gum graft surgery helps protect teeth from gum recession, and can also improve your smile. Gum recession may also cause tooth sensitivity, and even tooth loss.
What is a Gum Graft?
Gum grafting is a receding gums treatment that can help ease gum recession. However, it isn’t the only solution when it comes to periodontal disease.
Is Gum Surgery the only Solution?
Ocean Front Dental recommends the pinhole surgery for periodontal disease as it is much less invasive with very little, if any, downtime.
How to Fix Receding Gums
The Pinhole surgical technique for gum recession does not require soft tissue grafts or donor tissue. Although conventional receding gums treatment is quite effective, the Pinhole Surgical technique requires no incisions, no sutures, and best of all, no grafting.
According to Ocean Front Dental, some of the other benefits of this amazing gum recession treatment include:
- No sutures
- No surgical tools
- Less discomfort
- Faster recovery
- No need for donor tissue
- Natural, long lasting, beautiful results
If your dentist has suggested gum grafting, but you aren’t sure about gum surgery, schedule an appointment with Dr. Nick Seddon from Ocean Front Dental who can examine your gums to determine if you are a good candidate for this amazing surgery for periodontal disease.
You really can fight gum disease.
