There are various cosmetic issues involving gum (gingival) tissue. For example, your smile may look “gummy” — meaning you seem to display too much gum tissue when you smile, or your teeth appear too short. Sometimes it’s the opposite problem — your teeth appear too long because your gum tissue has receded (pulled back), exposing tooth-root surfaces that were covered at one time. Or, you may have an uneven gum line, meaning gum tissue covers some of your teeth more than others. All of these cosmetic gum problems can be successfully treated with cosmetic procedures performed in the dental office. Cosmetic Gum Surgery Spring, TX, Cosmetic Gum Contouring In Spring Tx
Gummy smile: A smile may expose your gums more than usual. It hides your teeth and make them look unattractive. A crown lengthening procedure removes excess tissues to make your teeth have a beautiful look.
Receding gums: Receding gums make your teeth excessively visible. At times, this may also make the roots of the teeth appear. The roots may appear yellow as compared to the rest of your teeth as they do not have a coat of enamel on them. Furthermore, the exposed roots may also be sensitive to hot and cold. Surgery is performed to stretch the gums so that roots are no longer visible.
Uneven gum line: There are times when certain teeth are covered with excess tissues than others. This creates an uneven gum line. The gums are reshaped with the help of a surgery.
Passmiles Dental treats all. A periodontist discusses the various options available for surgery and lets the patient choose the option that seems better. However, the choice of surgery will depend on the extent to which teeth are damaged.
The periodontist at Passmiles Dental Associates uses local anesthesia to numb the area that needs treatment. After doing a thorough cleaning of the gums, the periodontist will begin the procedure.
Remove excess tissues from the root and the upper layer.
Cutaway tissues near the teeth
Stitch the tissues on the existing gums to hold these in place
For gum recession, a periodontist will remove tissues from roots and stitch then onto the existing gums.
A patient can go home right after the surgery; however, the aftercare of the operation is mandatory. A person may recover faster by doing the following:
Avoid flossing or brushing at the area of surgery
Eat soft and cold food items like ice cream, eggs, pasta
Refrain from smoking
Use a mouth wash that removes plaque
Take prescribed medicines timely
Though the healing process is quick and takes not more than two weeks.
However, the pain a person experiences may vary from person to person. The pain may settle quickly if a periodontist removes only excess tissues. Surgery to remove tissues from the root may take longer to heal, and the person may feel pain for a few days. After the surgery, teeth become more sensitive to hot and cold; therefore, a desensitizing toothpaste may be helpful. Cosmetic Gum Surgery Spring, TX, Cosmetic Gum Contouring In Spring Tx
