Dental Surgery in Lake Success
Why would you need soft tissue grafting? It is a treatment method that is used to address receding gums, and that has both functional and cosmetic benefits. At the office of Alan S. Kuznick, this procedure is done with experienced, expert precision and optimal comfort for you, our valued patient.
When your gums recede, it gives off the illusion that your teeth are growing larger, when in fact it simply means that more of your tooth has become visible and exposed. Your gum tissue covers the roots of your teeth for a very good reason, and that is to act as a barrier to protect them. When there is not sufficient gum tissue there, your teeth typically become more sensitive, which is uncomfortable and puts you at risk for your bone tissue to be impacted. Our dental surgery in Lake Success
will result in the more aesthetically appealing smile you want, as well as restoring the benefit of protection that you need. The soft tissue grafting procedure is performed under local anesthesia. You will be numb during the process. The point of our dental surgery is to add necessary gum tissue, so where does it come from? There are two sources that are used. One is your own palate, and the other is a donor bank. Either way, the outcome is that your exposed roots become covered. As your gums heal, you will be advised by our office to eat soft foods and given other guidelines to assist in quick and effective recovery. The minimal effort on your part will most certainly be worth it, though. You'll have a better-looking smile, and one that is healthier now and in the long term.
