Gingivectomy in Vancouver, BC
Receding gums or gum recession can make a smile less attractive and put teeth at risk. To have receding gums means your gum line is too close to the roots of your teeth. A gum graft with our dentists can fix it.
Before the procedure begins, the area will be completely numbed using a local anesthetic. Small incisions are then made and excess gum tissue is carefully removed. After all areas of diseased tissue are removed, a putty-like substance is then placed over the gums. This substance is designed to protect your gums as they heal.
After the Procedure
After the procedure, it is important to eat only soft foods and to drink only cool or slightly warm liquids while the putty is in place and your gums are healing. It is important to keep the mouth clean after the procedure. While it is important not to brush in the area where the procedure was performed, it may be possible to brush and floss the rest of the mouth. After a few weeks the gums will be completely healed and it will be possible to resume brushing and flossing, though this should be done gently at first.
