Effectively Treat Gum Recession With Gum Grafts (Gum Lifting)
A gum graft, also known as gum lifting, is a periodontal surgical procedure performed by Dr. Kazemi at our San Jose office for restorative dental services.
During this minimally invasive surgical procedure, Dr. Kazemi uses advanced gum grafting techniques to regenerate the gum line, while also reducing discomfort and ensuring optimal results for each patient. Gum grafts are successful in treating single or multiple gingival recessions, and the main goal of treatment is to halt gum recession, while also improving the strength and thickness of your natural gumline.
At Bay Area Dental & Implant Center, we strive to offer our patients the best periodontal surgery in San Jose, Palo Alto, and the surrounding Bay Area communities.
Most Common Causes Of A Receding Gumline
Gum recession can be caused by a combination of genetic factors, or it can be due to factors resulting from improper oral hygiene.
Common causes of gum recession include:
- Aggressive brushing
- Thin gum lines or other genetic factors
- Overcrowding of the teeth
- Plaque buildup
- Previous orthodontic treatment
- Periodontal disease/gum disease
During your initial consultation, Dr. Kazemi will evaluate the severity of your gum recession with a comprehensive evaluation and digital imaging. If your receding gumline is mild or moderate, it may be able to be effectively managed with at-home preventative care strategies and routine checkups for monitoring purposes. If a gum graft is deemed necessary, Dr. Kazemi will discuss the next steps in detail with you during your consultation appointment.
Why It Is Important To Treat Gum Recession As Soon As Possible
Early treatment for gum recession is the key to preventing long-lasting damage to your teeth and gums. Through early intervention, gum grafts can help prevent further progression in those who are beginning to see signs of a receding gum line, or are at high risk due to genetic predisposition.
If left untreated, gum recession can continue to increase in severity, which can lead to painful root exposure, sensitivity, plaque buildup, root cavities, gum disease, and even bone deterioration.
