Gum Grafting for Sunnyvale, CA
Gum disease comes with many symptoms and consequences, and one of the most serious is tissue loss. Over time, harmful plaque and tartar can cause two things to happen. First, pockets can develop between the teeth and gums, giving bacteria, plaque, and tartar access to the tissue and bone beneath your gum line. Second, your gum line can actually recede, exposing your sensitive tooth roots and creating the potential for bone loss as well. Gum disease isn’t the only thing that can cause tissue loss, though; even something as simple as brushing too hard can contribute to this serious problem.
What to Expect from Gum Grafting?
To help you, Dr. Provines may recommend a gum grafting procedure. In cases where tissue loss is a direct result of gum disease, we’ll first perform a special deep cleaning procedure to remove plaque and tartar from your gums. We may also recommend a bone grafting procedure to restore the health and strength of vulnerable teeth. Once those procedures have been completed, we can use a small amount of your own gum tissue to encourage regeneration where you need it most. In addition to protecting your tooth roots, your new tissue will renew your gum line, revitalizing its appearance—and your confidence—in the process.
