The Importance of Treating Receding Gums
Receding gums can lead to serious dental problems if not treated. This condition exposes the roots of your teeth, making them more likely to get cavities and even leading to tooth loss in severe cases. Gum grafting is an effective solution to this problem.
How Gum Grafting Works
During the procedure, Dr. Farnoosh takes a small piece of tissue, usually from the roof of your mouth, and attaches it to the area where your gums have receded. This new tissue helps cover the exposed roots, providing them protection and reducing sensitivity.
The Gum Grafting Procedure Step-by-Step
- Initial Examination: Dr. Farnoosh first examines your gums to determine how much they have receded.
- Choosing the Graft Type: He then decides which type of graft will work best for you. There are different types, like connective tissue grafts, free gingival grafts, or pedicle grafts.
- The Grafting Procedure: During the procedure, Dr. Farnoosh carefully places the new tissue in the needed areas and secures it.
- Recovery and Healing: After the procedure, your gums will need some time to heal. Dr. Farnoosh provides detailed care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.
