Oral Plastic Surgery Restores Gum Appearance and Function

Oral Plastic Surgery of Gums | Greenwich CT Dentist | Greenwich Cosmetic Dentistry

Healthy gum tissue protects your teeth from disease and sensitivity and helps produce a great smile. When you experience a loss of gum tissue around your teeth, it can be the beginning of serious oral health problems. Exposed roots may be sensitive to temperature change, are more vulnerable to decay, and are associated with loss of supporting bone.

Aggressive tooth brushing and gum disease are two leading reasons that roots become exposed.

Gum recession can make your tooth root more exposed, more sensitive, and more suspectable to cavities. Also, aesthetically, longer-looking teeth make you look older.

Oral Plastic Surgery Rebuilds Gums

Dr. Cohen can perform periodontal plastic surgery to replace the missing gum tissue with grafting procedures. In the past, this procedure required that a piece of tissue be harvested from the roof of your mouth to serve as the graft material. Unfortunately, not everyone has enough tissue available or wants to have tissue taken from this sensitive area.

Dr. Cohen uses a product called Alloderm for his grafting.  Alloderm is a safe and effective product widely used in medicine and dentistry. Alloderm provides the missing components needed to restore health to damaged or receding tissue. It leads to fast healing and delivers great cosmetic results.

Dr. Cohen will provide more information and help you decide if oral plastic surgery is the most appropriate method to achieve your goals.
