Receding Gums Surgery and Other Treatment Options
If you are thinking about having receding gums surgery, be sure to understand the cause of your recession so you can make the best treatment choice.
In many cases, gum disease is the cause of gum recession. The bacteria that cause gum disease are very harmful to soft tissue, bone, and teeth. Professional treatment is the only way to treat gum disease, as it will not go away by itself or with home care. Other reasons for gum recession include genetics, traditional periodontal surgery and orthodontic treatments, lifestyle behaviors, bruxism, misaligned bite, and even brushing too hard with the toothbrush or improperly holding it against the gums when you do brush.
Laser gum disease surgery: For moderate to severe cases of periodontal disease, Dr. Sohn offers gentle, effective FDA cleared laser gum surgery to remove bacteria without causing any additional damage to healthy gum tissue.
PST™: This technique is a new, minimally invasive way to repair receding gums with reduced discomfort. Dr. Sohn is one of few dentists in the region to offer this innovative approach where patented tools and techniques are used to gently repair the gum line right at the recession area without any incisions or stitches.
Soft tissue grafting: Traditional soft tissue grafting is a receding gums surgery where soft tissue from other areas of the mouth is removed and surgically placed to the recession areas. Grafting material can also be used from a tissue bank.
