Cosmetic gum surgery for Dubai UAE patients
Patients in Dubai UAE who need cosmetic gum surgery are welcome to connect with the team at Precision Dental Clinic to speak to our team about periodontal procedures.
What is cosmetic gum surgery?
Cosmetic gum surgery is a periodontal procedure that is done for patients who have had periodontal disease, or “gum disease.” This condition can cause the natural gum tissue to shrink and pull away from the teeth in the smile, leaving behind exposed tooth roots and increasing the chances of a patient experiencing long-term, permanent changes to their smile. To bring the gum tissue back over the teeth, cosmetic gum surgery is performed.
How do I know if I am a candidate for cosmetic gum surgery?
Patients who have experienced gum recession due to gum disease are often perfect candidates for this elective procedure. In addition to improving the appearance of the smile, gum surgery can also protect the roots of the teeth from being exposed, significantly reducing the risk of cavities and further periodontal issues.
What can I expect from cosmetic gum surgery?
Patients who decide to move forward with cosmetic gum surgery will first need to be evaluated to determine if they are good candidates. Once patients choose to have the procedure performed, they will schedule a day for the treatment to be performed. In some cases, if there is a significant amount of gum tissue missing, patients may need gum grafting, in which donor tissue is used to restore the gums around the teeth. Tissue from the roof of the mouth can also be harvested by the dentist to repair the gumline. Patients will have post-operative instructions to follow closely to ensure proper healing and reduce the risk of infection.
