GUM SURGERY

Gum Surgery in Buffalo, NY

A common dental issue that our patients endure is gum recession.  It can occur very gradually and you may end up needing gum surgery with Family Dental Center to restore the health of your gums in Buffalo, NY.  Factors that could cause gum recession include:

•    Incorrect tooth brushing technique
•    Insufficient oral care
•    Hormonal fluctuations
•    Bruxism
•    Periodontal disease
•    Genetics
•    Crooked teeth
•    Misaligned bite

Soft tissue grafts are performed to treat gum disease, or correct damaged gum tissue. A tooth with receded gum line is prone to root decay, and further bone and tissue loss.

We offer periodontal procedures to stop further dental problems and to treat gum recession, while improving the esthetics of your gum line. For example, if you have an exposed tooth root resulting from gum recession it may not be causing you pain or sensitivity, but is causing one or more of your teeth to look longer than the others. In other cases, an exposed tooth root causes severe pain because it is exposed to extremes in temperatures or different kinds of food and liquids. Lastly, the root portion of the tooth is more likely to decay.

If you have an uneven gum line where some teeth are covered by more tissue than other, it’s possible to perform a gum surgery procedure to reshape the tissue for a pleasing effect.  Treatment methods depend upon the type of disease and how far the condition has progressed.
