Usually, gums grafts are performed to fix gum recession brought on by gum (periodontal) disease. Your gumline might be higher and your gums can pull back from your teeth. Exposed tooth roots can result in greater sensitivity. Less common reasons that may cause or lead to gum recession are aggressive tooth brushing or using a bad technique, frequent jaw clenching or teeth grinding (bruxism), and dental misalignment. Sometimes, oral piercings (tongue or lip) can rub against the gums and lead to recession. During your appointment, our team will examine your gums and decide if you're a candidate for gum grafts.
What To Expect
There are various sorts of grafts that will be chosen according to your specific needs. Connective-tissue gum grafts are the most common kind used to fix exposed tooth roots. This starts by cutting an incision in the palate (roof of your mouth) to take a little flap of skin. The connective tissue is taken from in the flap and then grafted to your gums. A free gingival graft is comparable except that much more tissue is taken from the roof of your mouth to build up especially thin gums. Another type of graft is a pedicle graft, which removes extra tissue from your mouth to where you need coverage. At your initial consultation, one of our experienced dentists can help you select the type of graft to suit your needs.
It is possible to go home following this grafting procedure; however, you need to recover for a couple of days. You will also have to have a responsible adult take you home if you had intravenous or oral sedation. Our team will explain your aftercare instructions, such as dietary restrictions and any prescription medications you will need to take. You might feel some discomfort or pain for a short amount of time after the operation, which might be minimized with cold compresses and nonprescription pain medication. To prevent damaging the grafts, you should not floss or brush while your gums heal. We will recommend a special mouth wash to help keep your mouth fresh. You may need to return for a follow-up visit so our team can monitor your recovery and improvements.
If you have dental insurance, a member of our staff will get in touch with your insurer and affirm your coverage. For remaining costs after insurance and also for patients without insurance, Newton Centre Dental accepts several payments. During your appointment, our team will discuss your estimated out-of-pocket expense. We may also give you more information on low-interest financing to help make your gum grafting procedure easier to afford.
