Gum disease treatment involves a gum disease doctor removing a small section of tissue from the inside or the roof of your mouth and layering it over the damaged gums.
When there is a large area of the tooth root exposed, the gum specialist will remove the tissue from the mouth’ roof and suture it onto the grafting site. The roof of the mouth is expansive, making it the best place to take donor tissue.
When there is thin gum tissue but not necessarily root or nerve exposure, the gum graft specialist will take a small piece of tissue from the roof of the mouth and suture it to any receding areas of the gums. This procedure will thicken the gums and prevent root exposure in the future.
When there is a moderate recession, but the gums are relatively healthy, the periodontal specialist will cut a flap of tissue and leave it attached to one end. The periodontist will then move this flap sideways to cover the exposed roots. The blood vessels remain in place, making this the ideal graft.
If you notice any of the following symptoms, contact a specialist in gums at your earliest convenience.
Many adults are affected by gum recession. The following are a few of the reasons you could notice gum recession:
The procedure could take one to two hours, depending on how receded the patient’s gums are.
It can take up to two weeks to recover after a gum graft. You should only eat soft, room-temperature foods like steamed vegetables, yogurt, and oatmeal for the following two weeks. Do not brush or floss in the affected area until it has healed. We recommend using mouthwash to prevent infections and plaque buildup.
Dr. Kohli may also suggest medication to help with any residual pain or discomfort. He will additionally schedule a follow-up appointment to ensure the graft has been successful and is healing properly. Our resident gum specialist will answer any questions and address any concerns you may have.
