Gum Recession Treatment in Matthews, NC
Why Is Gum Recession Treatment Necessary?
Receding gums are one of the most obvious signs of gum disease and can make you feel self-conscious about your smile. Once the gums wear away, they do not grow back, so you may be left with teeth that look very large or even dark triangular spaces between the teeth. The right gum recession treatment can improve your smile and also offers several oral health benefits.
Treatment for Receding Gums in Matthews, NC
Since periodontal disease is the primary cause of gum recession, we may first need to address this condition before restoring receded gum tissues. Upon evaluation, Dr. Green can put together a plan of action that includes treatment for receding gums with either gum grafting procedures or the Pinhole Surgical Technique™.
Gum Recession Treatment Options
After any necessary periodontal therapy, Dr. Green may recommend gum grafting or the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ to restore the gum line and improve your smile. Gum grafts involve taking tissue samples from the roof of the mouth (or other area) and transferring the tissue over to the area in need. The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ involves repositioning existing gum tissue over the teeth affected by gum recession.
If receding gums are making you feel self-conscious about your smile and you think you may be ready for treatment, consider the benefits of gum grafting or the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ to restore the gum line and improve your smile.
