The path of periodontal or gum disease can progress so far that your gums or gingiva may recede and if this occurs you lose a natural defense against trauma as well as bacterial penetration and further complications. Following an appointment which will include not only a thorough examination, but an in-depth consultation with Warren Baine, DMD, a course of treatment for your condition may include cosmetic tissue grafting in Jericho. Receiving this service may be vital for you to maintain and keep your natural teeth.
While the details of a cosmetic tissue grafting in Jericho by Warren Baine, DMD will be reviewed during your office visit, the information provided here is offered strictly as an overview. When you gums recede beyond the point in which modifying home care practices can serve as treatment, it is likely that you are experiencing pain due to sensitivity to hold and cold foods. Additionally, the gum and tooth is not esthetically pleasing. The condition can worsen until the tooth’s root surface is exposed which can lead to further root damage. A cosmetic tissue grafting can be the answer. Typically, tissue from the roof of the mouth or the tissue near the area being treated is moved over. This thin piece of tissue will serve as a stable band around the tooth and positioned to cover the root.
