Need Gum Grafting Treatment in Orangeville, ON?

What is gum grafting?

Gum grafting is a dental procedure where tissue is taken from another part of the mouth and is then reattached to the area with missing gum to cover the exposed root (this is also referred to as root recession treatment). It can be done on one or many teeth. This procedure would help in restoring your attractive smile.

Maintaining good oral health is important, but some of us overdo it with aggressive brushing. This may cause your gums to move apart, forming gaps between the teeth and the gum line, making a suitable location for bacteria to build up. Most individuals do not realize their gums are receding because the process is gradual. If gum recession is not treated, the roots of the teeth are exposed, causing teeth to be more sensitive. The bone structure of the teeth can also get damaged, resulting in tooth loss. If you have discovered that you have receding gums, there are numerous treatments you can turn to. One of those treatments is gum grafting.

Other instances when you need gum grafting include:

  • If you experience bleeding when eating or brushing your teeth
  • If you are suffering from periodontal diseases.
  • If you have an injury to the mouth that has caused the gums to recede.

How long does gum grafting take to heal?

Gum grafting surgery has a high success rate and patients experience complete healing of the gums within 6 weeks.

Gum Grafting Procedure

The gum grafting surgery is performed by either a periodontist (a gum specialist) or a general dentist at a clinic.

First, the periodontist will apply a local anesthetic to the surgical area; this eliminates any pain or physical discomfort from occurring during the surgery. He or she will then harvest the graft from the roof of the patient’s mouth and place it where the gum tissue has receded.

The entire procedure takes around an hour and a half but will require two appointments.

Your dentist or periodontist might instruct you to rinse your mouth several times a day with warm salty water or a special prescription, to speed up the healing process. Additionally, painkillers may be recommended to you to relieve any associated discomfort. The dentist will also schedule follow up appointments after the gum grafting surgery to check on the healing progress and removal of any sutures. Lastly, after a few months, you will be required to return to the dentist for the routine checkups.
