Gum Grafting Downey CA
Gum recession is common among adults and sometimes teenagers too. This problem causes receding gums where the tooth is left exposed, causing it to become sensitive. There are various causes of gum recession and when you ignore it, it could affect your smile and cause various other dental issues, including tooth decay, sensitivity, tooth loss and inflammation. If you want to protect yourself from this condition, a smart solution is to get gum grafting surgery.
There are mainly two kinds of grafts available - one is called a gingivitis gum graft and the other is known as a connective tissue graft. Like the name suggests a gingivitis graft is used for people suffering from gingivitis. Both of these grafts are similar in nature. The only difference is the way the tissues are taken from your mouth, then placed on the gums. If you want to learn more about gum grafts and see how you can benefit from this procedure, simply visit us at Downey Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and we can help you.
Protects Against Recession
Due to tooth loss, your gums start receding and this could expose the root of your tooth making it an extremely sensitive area. This also promotes tooth decay on other neighboring teeth, and it becomes a complete circle when the infection continues to spread. When you go in for gum grafting not only does it help to protect you from this infection, but it also ensures that there is no tooth sensitivity or tooth decay. This helps to maintain your overall oral hygiene better and also maintains the rest of your teeth preventing further loss, and the need for dental restorations such as dental implants, dentures, or even a full mouth reconstruction.
Protects Roots From Damage
Gum recession can cause various problems, including exposure of the tooth root. Since the root of the tooth is exposed, it becomes a painful situation and apart from the fact that it is exposed to sensitivity, it becomes difficult for you to even bite or to eat anything from that side. Recovering from this problem is a long and tough road and it is always better to prevent the situation from occurring rather than having to wait for it to happen and then try to recover.
Reduces Tooth Sensitivity
Tooth sensitivity is one of the most painful dental problems one can go through. It becomes so sensitive you can't even drink water in cold temperatures or consume something hot and this makes it difficult to lead a normal life. Gum recession can eventually result in tooth sensitivity and this problem is quite difficult to treat. Getting gum grafts can help to prevent tooth sensitivity, but it also protects the teeth from damage and keeps them stronger.
Prevents Plaque Buildup
During a gum graft, our professionals focus on removing any plaque buildup between the teeth or that has settled on the gums. This is definitely a great way to ensure that there are no dental problems. It also helps to ensure that gum disease does not spread, and you have better oral health.
