Why Treat Gum Recession?
Gum recession not only looks unappealing, but can cause discomfort, some other problems include:
- unattractive smile
- root sensitivity
- loss of supporting bone
- tooth decay
- plaque build-up
- risk of future recession
Today’s modern medicine techniques allow for a more comfortable procedure, which, in most cases, results in a completely closed wound, known as primary intention healing, which results in new zones of gum tissue covering formerly exposed roots. Periodontal surgery includes elements of art, experience, and a great deal of scientific knowledge to return proper form, function and aesthetics to your teeth and smile.
Dr Lydia is one of the first dentists in Brisbane to have completed this advanced surgical technique in oral plastic surgery. Successful surgical outcomes are directly related to the knowledge and skill of the surgeon – with Dr Lydia learning invasive surgical and suturing techniques to perform this surgery with enhanced knowledge, practical skills and confidence in obtaining successful results.
There are a few options to choose from when it comes to gum grafting, and in order to provide you with the best care, our trained clinician Dr Lydia will need to sit down with you to determine the best treatment option for a successful outcome.
