Top 3 Reasons to Think About Getting a Gum Graft
Mason & North Cincinnati, OH

A gum graft is an oral procedure that involves carefully removing tissues from other parts of your mouth and placing them on your gums. This helps fix the effects of gum recession. We recommend this procedure for patients with gum recession or those looking to prevent it. Through gum graft, you can cover your teeth and enhance your smile. There are several reasons why you should consider getting a gum graft.

Getting a Better Smile


The smile is an integral part of your appearance — it is the first thing people notice about you. Smiling can be pretty uncomfortable if most of your teeth are exposed. When your gums recede, more parts of your teeth are exposed. If you have receding gums, you should consider getting a gum graft to fix the problem. This is a reliable procedure that will help repair your smile and restore your confidence. It also helps reshape your jawline and improve your facial appearance.

Tooth Decay


Given that tooth decay exposes your tooth roots, they are vulnerable to tooth decay. It is vital to note that your tooth roots can sustain significant damage when attacked by bacteria. You are likely to experience a sharp toothache when that happens. However, when you undergo a gum graft, your teeth are protected against decay. The chances of this condition advancing are minimal, given the stability of your teeth. Therefore, if you want to prevent tooth decay, you should consider a gum graft procedure.

Tooth Sensitivity


Another reason you should consider a gum graft procedure is protecting against tooth sensitivity. Gum recession will expose most of your tooth roots, making them sensitive to touch and other things. You are likely to experience sharp pain when you drink cold or hot beverages. This is because the underlying tissues of your teeth are exposed. It can advance and have severe consequences if you don't treat this condition.

In some cases, it could lead to tooth loss. Luckily, a gum graft procedure will help prevent the advancement of this condition. It also helps keep your teeth in good condition. Contact us for more information on gum recession and gum graft.
