ARE YOU EXPERIENCING GUM RECESSION? WE CAN HELP RESTORE YOUR GUMS AND DECREASE SENSITIVITY
We Are Your Choice for South Calgary Gum Rejuvenation
Since your gums protect the roots of your teeth, over time some patients experience gum recession that gradually wears away and exposes the roots of the tooth.
What is Gum Recession?
Do you have teeth that appear longer than normal? If so, you may be experiencing Gum Recession. Gum recession or as it is also technically called, gingival recession, can cause teeth sensitivity over time, especially when exposed to certain pressures or temperatures, such as drinking hot coffee. If left untreated, gum recession can result in premature aging of your gums and teeth as well as ongoing bone and tissue loss.
What are the benefits of a Gingival Graft?
- Can strengthen and stabilize the gum covering the tooth.
- Can protect the tooth against further recession.
- Can decrease sensitivity in surrounding teeth affected by the gum recession. This is done by covering the exposed root with new gum.
- Depending on the case, can also restore an attractive smile by covering the exposed teeth roots.
What Are the Long-Term Risks?
If your gums continue to recede and your roots are left exposed, you can be in for risk for increased tooth sensitivity, daily pain, discomfort, exposed roots, tooth, and root decay, increased risk of periodontal disease, all of which traditionally requires painful corrective surgery and long healing times.
