RECEDING GUMS TREATMENT

Gum recession causes the tissues of the gums to pull away from the teeth. Receding gums are a common condition seen in periodontics. Receding gums can be caused from a gum injury, aggressive brushing, ill-fitting dentures, tobacco use, teeth grinding, or a family history of gum recession. Receding gums can cause the roots of the teeth to become exposed, which can lead to root sensitivity, bone loss, and possible loss of the tooth. NYC periodontists can provide effective gum recession treatments to improve receding gums and to protect a tooth from decay and damage. Treatment of receding gums can also alleviate any pain or inflammation caused by gum recession. To learn more about receding gum treatments, click the button below.

GUM CONTOURING

Gum contouring, which is also known as gum reshaping, is a periodontal treatment that recontours the gum tissue around certain teeth. Periodontists can perform gum contouring surgery on several teeth or all of the teeth of the smile, depending on your specific needs. Gum reshaping is a versatile procedure that can be used to remove unhealthy gum tissue or as a cosmetic procedure. Gum contouring is often performed to treat a gummy smile, asymmetrical gums, cleft gums, and enlarged gums. Click the button below to learn more about gum contouring.

CROWN LENGTHENING

Crown lengthening is a gum treatment that is performed when too little of the tooth is exposed. Crown lengthening removes excess gum tissue, exposing more of your tooth. Crown lengthening is sometimes performed to correct a gummy smile, which is when excess gum tissue conceals too much of the teeth and makes them appear too small or short. Additionally, the periodontists perform crown lengthening to treat a cavity concealed beneath the gum line or to expose more of a tooth that is broken or damaged in order to effectively place a dental crown.

GUM GRAFTING

Periodontists perform a gum graft by using healthy gum tissue from a donor location or using a dehydrated tissue such as Alloderm and placing it in areas that may be experiencing receding gums. Gum grafting can promote the healthy generation of gum tissue to treat gum recession. By treating gum recession with a gum graft, the roots of the teeth are protected from harmful bacteria, as well as temperature extremes and other irritants. Gum grafting is a versatile treatment. Periodontists can perform gum grafting using allografting techniques, connective tissue grafts, pedicle grafts, and free gingival grafts.

GUM DISEASE TREATMENT

Periodontal disease, which is commonly referred to as gum disease, is an infection of the gums that can cause damage to the teeth and jawbone. Gum disease treatment is designed to treat periodontal disease and restore the health of the gums, teeth, and jawbone. A gum disease treatment can improve the symptoms of gingivitis, periodontitis, and severe periodontal disease. Periodontists in NYC offer gum disease treatments to restore healthy gums.

WHEN SHOULD I SEE A PERIODONTIST IN NYC?

If you are experiencing painful or uncomfortable symptoms related to your gums, you may need to see a periodontist. Some of the common symptoms that require a periodontal treatment include bleeding gums, chronic bad breath, loose teeth, inflamed gums, or gum recession. The periodontists we recommend are fully trained to treat gum disease and alleviate these uncomfortable symptoms. Following a periodontal treatment, Dr. John Koutsoyiannis can ensure the health of your smile with routine teeth cleanings, cavity fillings, TMJ treatments, and restorative treatments.

Periodontists are trained in a wide range of procedures that go well beyond basic gum disease treatment and prevention. At Sohosmile®, we provide you with access to the best periodontists that possess the latest techniques and technology for periodontal treatment. You get the best care from a periodontist practice that strives to deliver satisfaction at every turn. In cases where periodontal disease is too advanced, tooth removal may be necessary. Periodontists strive to save the teeth before considering this option. If a tooth needs to be removed, you will need tooth replacement. A periodontist can recommend which option will work best for you.
