If you are looking to avoid gum recession as well as improve gum line aesthetically, you might want to consider gum grafting. Your Central London dentist can perform such dental procedure safely and expertly.
Receding gums usually result to exposed roots, which makes your teeth appear longer than normal. For some people, this could be quite bothersome and makes them conscious of their smiles. Aside from this, exposed roots could increase your sensitivity to cold and hot foods and drinks.
With gum grafting, you will be able to address problems associated with receding gums. It will effectively improve your gum line and at the same time, prevent further recession of your gums which could possibly lead to bone loss.
The entire gum grafting procedure is simple. Gum tissue will be excised from another donor source or even your own palate. This tissue will then be used to cover the roots exposed due to gum recession.
In summary, gum grafting will allow you to enjoy the following benefits:
• Reduce gum recession
• Prevent bone loss
• Decrease tooth sensitivity
• Improve smile aesthetically
Of course, your Central London dentist will need to assess your dental health before proceeding with a gum grafting procedure. A detailed medical history will also be obtained in order to ensure that you are medically-fit. In addition, the exact reason for the gum recession will have to be determined in order to prevent a recurrence in the future.
Recovery from gum grafting procedure will only take a short time and you will soon find yourself eating, drinking, talking and laughing with ease and confidence.
