Benefits of Gum Graft Surgery

Posted on 4/26/2021 by Candice
Benefits of Gum Graft SurgeryGum graft surgery, also known as gum recession surgery or periodontal treatment, is a surgical procedure that places healthy gum tissue in spots where gums have receded.

Receding gums can be due to several factors. Some reasons include aggressive brushing over time, excessive gingivitis, trauma to gum tissues (due to sports-related or other accidents), wearing braces, wearing ill-fitted dentures, smoking of any kind, and genetics.

At Surprise Smiles, David Frausto, DDS and Diana Kim, DDS can tell you all you need to know about the benefits of gum graft surgery.

Safeguards Against Further Gum Recession

The biggest benefit of gum graft surgery is that it protects against further gum receding in the future. When you have healthy gums, the gum tissue can easily do its job which is to protect your teeth and their roots from infection and bacteria. This helps to prevent inflammation caused by infection and ultimately prevents gum receding.

Lowers Tooth Sensitivity

When gums recede, they expose sections of teeth that do not have enamel built up to protect them. When the teeth, along with any exposed roots, arent protected by either gum tissue or enamel, they become highly sensitive to hot and cold foods and beverages.

Gum graft surgery adds a protective layer that prevents sensitivity caused by gum recession and exposed roots.

Makes Your Smile More Attractive

Gum graft surgery can significantly enhance your smile. If your gums are uneven, swollen, discolored, or if you cannot see your gums when you smile, the attractiveness of your smile may be compromised.

Gum graft surgery adds a new gum tissue that makes your gums appear healthy, natural, and even. This won't just improve the appearance of your gums, but also your smile!
