Gum Graft Surgery for everyone in TurDent

Why is Gum Graft Surgery Needed?

Doctors perform the gum graft to give the gum line a natural contour. This allows not only to create a good smile but also to get rid of chronic dental problems. Proper contouring of the gum tissue protects the roots of the tooth and helps prevent a number of diseases. During the operation, the soft tissues of the gums can either build up or be removed.

Indications for Gum Transplant Surgery

Most often, gum transplantation is prescribed to restore aesthetics. However, it is often necessary for medical reasons, such as:

Another periodontitis disease may include problems such as periodontal pockets. With periodontitis, the gum does not adhere tightly to the tooth, gradually rising and exposing the cervical part. If nothing is done, after a while the teeth will become movable.

In the presence of deep periodontal pockets, a connective tissue graft method is used. A surgical operation is performed to clean the periodontal pockets from plaque and bacteria in order to remove deposits in the area of the root. During the procedure, the doctor peels off the gum tissue, so the cleaning is deep and effective. The method is used in the complex procedure of periodontitis.

The Gum graft surgery is also carried out in case of atrophy and hypertrophy of soft tissues in the mouth in the presence of neoplasms on the mucosa. Most often, the doctor prescribes a procedure to restore the integrity of the gum tissue contour after injuries. Also, the procedure can be prescribed after dental implantation.

Gum Recession

This is one of the most dangerous diseases listed above, because it causes the most difficult consequences if the patient ignores the problem for a long time and misses the boat.

Gum recession is a disease characterised by the loss of gum tissue. If the patient ignores the problem for a long time, then the course of recessive gum disease can ruin the gum line so much that even the root parts of the teeth are exposed. This gum disease not only impairs the aesthetics of your smile, but it can seriously damage your teeth and gum tissue. In order not to make matters worse, this dental disease should be treated as soon as you see its first symptoms.

Gum recession is manifested by the following symptoms:

You should immediately contact the doctors of the TurDent clinic if you noticed one of these symptoms.

Improper daily oral care can be the cause of a very large number of dental problems. In addition to brushing and flossing regularly, choosing the right toothbrush is also important. Very aggressive brushing, using hard toothbrushes, and improper handling of the electric brush can lead to serious problems with gum tissue.

Contraindications to the Procedure

This procedure involves a fairly complex surgical intervention. It is always important for the dentists of the TurDent clinic to strictly follow the procedure protocols, because this is a guarantee of the quality result and the trust of our clients in us. Over the years of work in the field of dentistry, we began to value our reputation and the trust of our clients, and that is why we employ only specialists who have had years of practice before coming to work at the TurDent clinic.

Among the main points of the treatment protocol, there are contraindications to this procedure. An operation to correct the contour of the gums cannot be performed in case of exacerbation of chronic diseases, general diseases and immunodeficiency states. Diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, and diseases of the nervous system are also distinguished among contraindications. It is also worth noting that a contraindication for this procedure is cavities, inflammation of the gums or tartar. Therefore, before starting the procedure, the dentist must cure caries and inflammation of the gums and tartar. However, only a doctor can make the final decision on whether a gum graft is right for you.

Types of Gum Graft Surgery

Gum graft surgery is most often performed either surgically or with a laser. According to the type of surgical intervention, the procedure is divided into the following classifications:

  • local
  • generalised
Types of Gum Graft Surgery

Local Gum Graft Surgery

Local gum graft surgery is performed on only one tooth. Such an operation is needed in cases where the recession of the gums or the creeping of the gums on the teeth occurs in a small area. Most often, local gum grafting is carried out under local anaesthesia.

Generalised Gum Graft Surgery

A generalised gum graft surgery is performed by the doctor to align the gum contour line, for example, on the entire jaw at the same time. Such an operation, of course, is considered more surgically invasive and takes longer to complete. The more time the doctor requires for the operation, and the more materials the surgeon uses, the more expensive the operation.

The price of gum graft surgery in Turkey depends primarily on how many times you need to do transplants in one procedure. It is also worth considering the fact that the price is set taking into account the many years of experience of our surgeon in the field of dentistry, and the high quality of the dental procedures that we perform. This is primarily reflected in the numerous reviews of our customers.

The procedure is also divided by type and direction of treatment. It could be:

Can Gum Disease be Prevented?

You can avoid the procedure by following a few simple tips:

Tip 1: You should visit your dentist regularly even if you don’t have any symptoms. Our experts recommend to undergo preventive examinations at least 2 times a year.

Tip 2: Take good care of your oral hygiene. Use a medium-hard toothbrush and don’t forget to floss.

Tip 3: Have regular professional dental cleanings at the clinic. This is the most effective method to get rid of plaque and tartar. But plaque and tartar are one of the most common causes of a huge number of dental problems.

Tip 4: Treat dental diseases in time. They are a source of infection and can lead to gingivitis.

Tip 5: Stop smoking. Smoking is not only bad for your lungs but also for your teeth and gums. Substances that a person inhales while smoking can destroy the enamel, which subsequently leads to very serious damage to the teeth.

Tip 6: Try not to injure the gum, and do not eat too hot food and drinks.

By following these simple tips, you will definitely be the picture of health, as well as avoid spending extra money on all kinds of dental procedures.
