Effective Therapy for Gum Recession
When gum recession occurs, there are both cosmetic and wellness concerns. Your smile may become unsightly, and your body loses a natural defense against bacteria penetration and trauma.
In cases where only minor recession is present, modifying your home care routine will usually help prevent the need for additional treatment. Some healthy gingiva often remains to protect the tooth, and it is up to you to restore your gums to optimal health.
However, when recession reaches the mucosa, the first line of defense against bacterial penetration is lost. Gum recession can also result in root sensitivity to hot and cold foods as well as an ugly smile. At the same time, exposed root surfaces can lead to root caries and root gouging. In such situations, cosmetic peridontist, Dr. Rynar offers two solutions that enable you to restore the health and appearance of your gums.
A gum graft is designed to solve these problems. During your procedure, a thin piece of tissue is gently removed from the roof of the mouth and used to provide a stable, healthy band of attached tissue around a tooth.
This innovative procedure provides the same benefits of gum grafting with less pain and recovery time. Instead of taking tissue from the roof of your mouth, Dr. Rynar utilizes rigorously-tested, medically-approved donor tissue. Allografting is more comfortable because only one part of your mouth is being impacted.
