Gum grafting is a procedure frequently performed by our general dentists, qualified in periodontics. It can be recommended to preserve the smile’s integrity when the health of the gums is threatened. At our dental clinic in Île-Perrot, we will be able to advise you if this procedure is necessary to help give you a healthy, radiant smile.
Gums diseases, poor oral hygiene practises and a poor tooth brushing technique can greatly affect the health of the gums. However, gum health is essential to maintaining the health of the whole mouth. The previously mentioned factors can cause gum recession. This means the gum becomes less thick and high. People who have misaligned teeth and those suffering from bruxism are more likely to suffer from gum recession. It should be noted that the use of a toothbrush whose bristles are not soft enough, as well as an aggressive brushing, may also result in gum recession.
It is important to visit your dentist regularly so that he can detect the first signs of gum recession. If necessary, the dentist will recommend a gum graft.
Gum Recession: What to Look For
Gum recession can appear and develop quickly, it can therefore go unnoticed. However, some signs should encourage you to consult your dentist in order to prevent the complications associated with receding gums. Among these: an increased sensitivity to hot and cold, teeth looking longer and a smile less aesthetic because the tooth roots are exposed. In advanced cases, teeth can become loose.
To help you protect all your teeth, your dentist will recommend a gum graft if you suffer from gum recession. There are different types of gum graft and your dentist will indicate which one is necessary in your case. In most cases, the graft is taken from the client’s palate. Other techniques can be used to sample the graft and it can also be synthetic.
Here are the necessary steps to a gum graft. This procedure is always performed under local anesthesia:
Preparing the procedure site and harvesting the graft
Your dentist thoroughly cleans the area that will receive the graft. It is important to remove all traces of bacteria, dental plaque and tartar to help adhesion of the graft. The graft is then harvested, for example in the client’s palate. Its size and thickness vary from case to case.
Placing the graft
The graft is put in place and your dentist fixes it with stitches. During healing, the graft binds with the natural gum.
Postoperative advice and follow-ups
Your dentist will offer you postoperative advice so that the graft heals properly. A follow-up exam will be necessary to ensure that healing is normal. During the following routine and cleaning exams, your dentist will pay close attention to the condition of the area that received the graft.
