Are you concerned about the health and appearance of your smile due to the debilitating effects of periodontitis? Gum disease can spread more rapidly than many of us realize, causing vast levels of destruction to all areas of a patient’s smile without creating a single moment of pain.

Periodontitis needs to be treated as soon as possible before loss of gum lines leads to loss of teeth and bone.

Cosmetic tissue grafting is a process used to treat ailing gum lines from periodontitis or even the simple lack of healthy gum lines due to a genetic disorder. An adequate amount of gums are an absolute necessity in order to keep teeth healthy and strong. When mild gingivitis turns into destructive periodontitis, the first aspect of your smile to be affected are the linings of your gums where they meet the surface of your teeth. High bacteria levels turn against your smile to eat away at the gum lines, causing a gap to form between the edge of your gums and your teeth. This gap causes the roots of your teeth to become exposed to the outside world. Unlike the crowns of your teeth, the roots are not protected by dentin or enamel, and can be easily subject to decay and loss. Your doctor works to prevent this problem from ever happening to you with a gingival graft taken from the roof your mouth. By taking the graft from your own body, your doctor works to insure fast healing times with minimal complications and easy acceptance. Once the graft has been acquired, the soft tissue is secured to the lining of your gums where current gum lines are inadequate. This procedure not only works to immediately repair gum lines, but the soft tissue graft itself actually works to actively encourage new gum line growth for naturally healthy gums that will protect your teeth and jaw bones from harm for a smile that is as healthy as it is beautiful.
