Why Gums Recession Occurs
Gums can recede, basically start to pull back, giving you a “long in the tooth” look due to a variety of causes. After all, your gum tissues are affected every single day! From the time you wake up in the morning until the time you go to bed, you introduce many different objects into your mouth, such as your toothbrush, dental floss, food, toothpicks and even mouth jewelry.
Over time, all this friction can lead to gum recession in certain adults. While it is possible to continue getting dental care without treatment of your receding gums, there is a risk associated with ignoring the damage that has occurred. For instance, your exposed tooth root could be left without any protection against disease and decay. Additionally, your teeth could become highly sensitive to foods and drinks that are hot, cold or sugary.
Without intervention in the form of a gum graft surgery, your gums will not be able to renew themselves or give you the smile you desire.
How a Gum Grafting Surgery in Jacksonville, FL Works
When our periodontists perform a gum grafting surgery, they typically take gum tissue from another part of your mouth, such as the palate, and reattach it to the area of gum recession. The reattachment is done using sutures that precisely stitch together the gum tissues. The new gums are contoured, so when the site heals, it looks completely natural. Many patients report that they are surprised how easy the process can be! They are also thrilled with the results – no more receding gums or “long teeth”!
