If you have lost gum tissue to disease or trauma, or if you have an uneven gum line, call Brighton Periodontal & Implant Dental Group today to speak with our dentists about a gum graft in Woodland Hills, California.
In a gum graft, the dentist will use a small amount of oral soft tissue taken from another part of your mouth such as another part of your gums or the roof of your mouth or a tissue bank. The dentist will stitch the graft in place over an area in your mouth that needs the gum tissue replaced. There are also special proteins that can be used to speed healing and stimulate your body’s connection with the graft.
Our dentists can use a gum graft to make your smile more appealing. And because your gums are so important to your oral and overall health, a graft can keep your mouth and your body safe. Receding gums from periodontal disease can result in lost teeth and a variety of other health problems.
Dr. Homa H. Zadeh also uses the VISTA technique to address periodontal health issues. This involves repositioning the gum tissue and the use of L-PRF fibrin for a minimally invasive treatment that can be completed in a sincgle visit. This treatment is more comfortable for you, and your recovery time is lessened. This is just one way our dentists and team ensure your comfort and improved oral health.
To learn more about gum grafting and to see if it would be a good choice for you, call 818-703-7733 today to schedule a visit with Dr. Zadeh, Dr. Ali Zadeh, Dr. Sara Tanavoli or Dr. Karen Wager.
