No Longer Suffer from Gum Recession
Dr. Lee may recommend a gum graft to treat gum recession and put an end to any gum pain or tooth sensitivity that you may be experiencing. Repairing and restoring your gums does require a surgical procedure and Dr. Lee may employ one of several grafting techniques to ensure optimal results. Gum grafts may be performed by using tissue from a nearby site, grafting tissue from the roof of the mouth, or by using donor grafting material.
Receding gums may be causing gum pain and making you self-conscious about your smile. It is important to remember that gum recession is one of the common side effects of progressing periodontal disease, so it is critical that you seek treatment for periodontal disease before you undergo any type of gum graft procedure. You can help prevent gum disease by using the proper tooth brushing technique and keeping up with a daily brushing and flossing regimen. If you have a misaligned bite, you may be at a higher risk of developing receding gums because of too much pressure on certain areas of the mouth.
Since the gums do not grow back once they have receded, prevention and early treatment are vital to your oral health. To learn more about the gum graft procedure or treatment options for gum pain, set up a consultation with Dr. Lee in Coppell, TX today!
