Gum Grafting

Stop the Gum Recession at the Source and enjoy a smile that looks more natural.

We frequently correct gummy grins with aesthetic crown lengthening and gum grafting. Our dentists and specialists can trim the gums and remove extra gum tissue by using lasers for gum contouring. The operation is swift, secure, and long-lasting. Extra gum and bone tissue are sculpted during a crown lengthening surgery to expose more of your natural teeth.

You can be a candidate for a gummy smile treatment if your teeth look too short or if your gums sit too low on your teeth. People with gummy grins frequently find it difficult to smile out of embarrassment, and it frequently lowers their self-confidence.

Techniques and Solutions

Gum shaping and cosmetic crown lengthening are painless and safe procedures.

Fast and with very little discomfort, the patient recovers. These procedures enable our patients to grin with a more natural-looking appearance.

Gingival recession can damage the structure and function of the teeth it affects. Periodontal plastic therapeutic surgical procedures are used by dentists to treat such flaws. The increased zone of keratinized, attached gingiva creates a more manageable periodontal environment, typically with significantly less sensitivity, in addition to regaining an aesthetic gingival profile through root coverage.

The tunnel technique avoids releasing crucial papillae and maintains a high level of vascularity at the surgical site to sustain the grafts, which optimizes esthetics and predictability. Our staff at Vilafortuny Dubai uses the closed pouch tunnel approach. This leads in fewer unsuccessful outcomes and no incisions during the treatment.

Our gums show a lot about our oral health.

Common telltale indicators of gum or periodontal disease include red, swollen, or bleeding gums.

There are many people who have gum disease. Gum irritation may eventually result from persistent tartar buildup (gingivitis). Swollen gums that bleed readily while cleaning your teeth are a symptom of gingivitis. This illness can be cured and reversed with straightforward medication combined with behavioral improvements in dental hygiene. Periodontitis, a more serious condition, may eventually develop in susceptible persons from gingivitis.

    Gum Recession in Dubai: Your Questions Answered

    Cost of Treatment?

    The cost of gum recession treatment depends on the severity of your case and the specific procedure needed as well as the amount of teeth affected. Generally, non-surgical treatments like antibiotics, bonding, or orthodontics are more affordable for mild recession. Surgical procedures like grafting become necessary for severe cases and may cost more.

    Bone Grafting vs. Gum Grafting

    The type of graft you need depends on the cause of your gum recession. Bone grafting is often used for cases involving tooth loss and dental implant placement, where additional bone support is required as well as periodontally diseased teeth. Gum grafting, on the other hand, focuses on restoring receding gum tissue itself, often used for other conditions than periodontitis.

    Cosmetics & Gum Treatment?

    Yes! Gum recession can be addressed for cosmetic reasons as well. Our cosmetic dentists offer treatments like gum grafts, veneers or gum contouring to restore a beautiful smile.

    What about Dentures and Gum Recession?

    Poorly fitting partial removable dentures can contribute to gum recession, especially if they cause irritation or become loose. Our dental team can create high-quality dentures using advanced technology, ensuring a comfortable fit and preventing gum damage.

    Healing Time After Gum Grafting

    Gum grafting typically requires around two weeks of recovery. During this time, it’s crucial to follow your periodontist’s aftercare instructions meticulously. This includes maintaining good oral hygiene and attending regular follow-up appointments.

    Will I experience pain during Gum Grafting?

    The procedure is generally painless thanks to a topical anesthetic applied to the area beforehand. This numbing effect lasts for a few hours. Afterward, you might experience a mild tingling sensation and light swollen gum, which is usually manageable.

    Age and Gum Recession - Is it related?

    While gum recession can occur at any age, it’s more common in older adults. However, it’s important to note that aging itself isn’t the primary cause.

    Benefits of Gum Grafting

    Gum grafting offers numerous benefits beyond aesthetics. It helps restore gum health, prevent bone loss, reduce the risk of gum disease and tooth decay, and improve overall smile appearance, along with potentially reducing tooth sensitivity.

    Choosing Between Surgical & Non-Surgical Treatments - Whats the best option?

    The best course of action depends on the severity of your case. Non-surgical options like antibiotics, orthodontics, or bonding may be suitable for mild recession. However, for advanced cases, surgical procedures like grafting are often recommended by our dentists for optimal results.
