Revive Your Gumline With a Grafting Procedure

There are a variety of reasons for a receding gumline. Genetics, hard brushing techniques, or an injury are just a few causes. However, one of the main reasons is gum disease. Before Dr. Rasmussen restores your gumline, he will make sure your gums are in good health. He may need to perform a deep cleaning procedure. It will remove tartar and plaque infecting the gum tissue.

Once your gums are healthy, your dentist can proceed with a gum graft. He’ll replenish your gumline using tissue from a donor or from inside your mouth. There’s no reason to feel nervous about the procedure. We’ll make sure you are comfortable. You can:

Common Questions About Gum Grafts

How do gum grafts work?

If your gums recede due to gum disease or other factors, your tooth roots can be exposed. This causes uncomfortable sensitivity to hot and cold substances. It also makes you more susceptible to dental decay and other problems and can even result in losing teeth. To avoid these issues, we can remove tissue from another part of your mouth and transfer it to your gums during a grafting procedure.

Are gum grafts worth it?

Your gums are an important part of your oral health. Without healthy gums, you can’t have healthy teeth! A gum graft improves the look of your gumline and the overall appearance of your smile. More important, it keeps you from experiencing unpleasant symptoms like sensitivity, and it makes you less prone to decay and other problems.

How long does it take for gum grafts to heal?

It usually takes only a week or two for a gum graft to heal. However, you will feel better very soon after the procedure. Any minor discomfort is usually easy to manage with over-the-counter medication. We’ll provide you with complete instructions to ensure a speedy and healthy recovery. You’ll need to be careful brushing and flossing for a few days and may need to avoid certain foods as well.
