Precise and Minimally Invasive Gum Surgery with Our Specialists in Glen Cove
Besides the color of teeth, your beauty of a smile is also affected by the condition of your gums. Healthy gums should sit tight against the teeth’ necks. When the gums extend to the teeth’s front, it disturbs the natural balance of tooth to gum length. This leads to an uneven gum line or a gummy smile.
Your gum tissue ideally should fit around your teeth tightly.
In certain cases such as gum or periodontal disease, it may cause the destruction of the supporting bone and tissue leading to the formation of pockets surrounding the teeth that can become deeper with time and become of the house for breeding bacteria. There can be other gum problems as well. Whatever the reason may be for opting for gum surgery, One and Truly Dental is your reliable source for gum surgery in Glen Cove.
Are Gum Diseases Damaging Your Smile?
When gum diseases go beyond their initial stage and into the advanced stage, gum surgery is suggested to remove the bacterial infection and tartar around the teeth effectively, halt disease progression, restore lost tissue, and minimizing gingival pocket height. Gum diseases are progressive. If optimum measures are not taken at right time, they may continue to continue to compromise your teeth and compromise your dental health and overall well-being.
Various Gum Surgeries
For Long Exposed Teeth
If your teeth are too short or too long in appearance, it could be due to your gums may cover your teeth too much or may not be enough. In such cases, you need to undergo gum surgery to keep the gum to tooth ratio in balance. In the case of short teeth, the surplus gum tissue will be removed to expose the teeth more and the gum line will be sculpted to give you a perfect smile. For long teeth, gum graft surgery is performed by the specialist at our Glen Cove office to reduce the receding gums and prevent the decaying of vulnerable roots.
Indentations in Jawbone and/or Gums
When you lost your teeth, it may lead to an indentation in the jawbone and gums where the teeth used to be placed. This happens because of the receding of the jawbone as it is not holding the tooth in its place any longer. It leads to an unnatural looking dent and causes the replaced tooth to appear longer in comparison to the surrounding teeth. This surgery is known as ridge augmentation that can fill the dent and restores the natural contour of the jaw and gums.
When the bone surrounding your teeth is lost, osseous surgery is recommended in such cases. It is advised for patients that did not respond to non-invasive treatment such as gum therapy. It is a traditional procedure that removes the gum tissue and diseased bone from the gum pockets. With the help of osseous surgery, we can:
- Improve overall well-being and health
- Reduce systemic inflammation
- Promote gum tissue reattachment
- Remove infected tissue
- Prevent further tooth and bone loss
- Reduce periodontal pocketing
