When your gums show signs of receding, you need gum recession treatment as soon as possible. Prompt treatment can prevent the problem from worsening, and can even prevent tooth loss. The specific procedure you need will depend on your particular situation. We can perform the gum recession treatment procedure that is right for you.
If your gum recession is in its earliest stage, a simple procedure can correct the problem. All your Stoner Periodontic Specialist will need to do is adjust the gum so the root is covered. The bacteria will be removed so your gums and teeth will be healthy.
Gum recession that has progressed will not respond effectively to this treatment. There are other treatments your periodontic specialist will consider. Your specialist may recommend Allograft surgery or a gum transplant. When Allograft surgery is the preferred option, the procedure does not involve using your own tissues. Dental Allograft will provide a foundation for your body to grow new tissue cells and blood vessels.
A gum recession treatment procedure generally takes less than forty-five minutes. You can go home after the procedure is completed. You will be given instructions regarding what you should and should not do during the recovery period. This may include information about medications, physical activity, diet, and oral care.
In most cases, patients can resume normal activities the day after the procedure. However, you can expect complete healing to take one or two weeks. If you experience excessive bleeding, swelling, bruising, or pain, call us immediately.
Regardless of the procedure you choose, gum recession treatment can reduce your risk of tooth loss, eliminate tooth sensitivity, reduce the risk of cavities in the tooth’s roots, and improve your appearance. Not only will you look healthier after treatment, you will be healthier. It is a simple approach to good oral health.
