Are your teeth sensitive? We can help!
A gingival graft restores the thickness of the weakened gum and helps to support tissues to better protect your teeth. The surgical procedure is performed by Dr. Habra under local anesthesia and focuses on protecting the existing gingiva while stopping the progression of the recession.
The purpose of this procedure is to add more gingival tissue to cover exposed roots, treat underlying sensitivity and increase the quality of the existing tissue which is particularly important for orthodontic treatments and for fixed or removable prostheses.
A gum transplant can reduce recession, bone loss, tooth sensitivity and improve the appearance of your smile. Whether you have a gum transplant to improve function or aesthetics, with Dr. Habra you will definitely enjoy a new smile and greatly improve your periodontal health.
What are the causes of gum recession?
Degradation of gingival tissue is sometimes related to periodontal diseases or mechanical and hereditary factors such as:
- Bruxism (grinding of teeth)
- Shape of the alveolar bone
- Fine gums
- Periodontal inflammation
- Bad position of the teeth
- Bad brushing technique
- Presence of ill-fitting dental crowns
