Gum Treatment

You cannot boost your smile without considering the gingival display and the ratio between tooth display and gum display. You have to also consider the volume of the gum and how it’s affecting lip support. Therefore the aim of periodontal plastic surgery is to harmonize these three variables.

A beautiful smile is not only restricted to smooth white teeth that look healthy, but it also includes having a good-looking healthy gum without any black spots and patches or discolorations. Though discolored gums may be healthy, they can look unattractive and unappealing.

Our professionals at Procare Dental Clinic are of the few in the region that offers a gum bleaching treatment that will ensure you a good looking and healthy gum.

Exposed tooth roots are the result of gum recession which can cause tooth sensitivity and bone loss if not treated. Rectifying this issue requires the use of soft tissue grafts to cover roots or recreate a healthy gum tissue which is taken from your palate or another donor source to cover the exposed root. This can be done for one tooth or several teeth to even your gum line and reduce sensitivity.

Periodontal disease is manifested when the gingival tissue that is supposed to form a barrier around the tooth to protect the supporting tissue and bone from bacteria fails to complete its task which would to lead to the formation of a pocket and bone loss. Pocket reduction treatments come in two forms:

A non-surgical treatment consisting of cleaning and scaling of the root surface to remove the plaque and tartar that builds up and hardens on the tooth surface and can only be removed with professional cleaning from above and below the gum line of all your teeth.

A surgical approach during which the gum is folded back, the disease causing bacteria is removed and the irregular surfaces of the bone are rendered smooth before securing the gingival tissue into place. This will allow the gum tissue to better reattach to healthy bone.
