A Story from a Satisfied Client about Gum Grafting
I knew I would be attending many weddings this summer, so naturally, I wanted to make sure my smile was perfect for all the photos. In preparation for the season, I had noticed that I had a few bottom teeth that were disproportionate in size to the ones next to them. Curious as to what the problem might be, I went to the Periodontal Associates office in Mississauga for an assessment.
After my assessment from Periodontal Associates I found out that I was experiencing gum recession in my bottom teeth. This is evident, as the tissue that surrounds my bottom teeth has pulled away, exposing more area than should be exposed. When this happens, it can be dangerous, as the root of the tooth can also be exposed. Gum recession is a fairly common problem, but not always recognized, as the process is slow and gradual.
My immediate thoughts were – how do I repair this problem? The team at Periodontal Associates explained that the procedure to repair uneven gums is called gum grafting. Gum grafting is a cosmetic procedure that is used to repair gum recession, and cover unattractive roots, preventing teeth from decay and eventual loss. The team explained the procedure consists of a soft tissue graft, and in the end, the exposed roots will be covered and protected. The procedure will also even out the look of my teeth by restoring them to the proper length.
I was curious as to who needs gum grafting and how many times the Mississauga team has performed the cosmetic procedure? They informed me that the Periodontal Associate office performs the procedure quite often. Their main objective is to prevent tooth loss in all of their patients, and that includes soft tissue grafts when necessary. If left untreated, over time, an exposed root will ruin your smile and cause tooth sensitivity to hot and cold foods. In the worst case scenario the patient will experience tooth loss.
Gum grafting is the cosmetic dental procedure that will solve the problem of gum recession and make your smile gorgeous again.
