How Periodontal Plastic Surgery Can Improve Your Oral Health

Posted on 7/26/2021 by Dr. Boustany
Plastic surgery is often associated with liposuction, face lifts, and other types of body-related cosmetics. However, not all plastic surgery procedures are just for the looks. Periodontal plastic surgery can improve your oral health while giving you the advantages of a better-looking smile! Periodontal surgery is surgery that can correct the gum tissue loss around the teeth, which is often a consequence of periodontal diseases. Periodontal, or gum disease, is a bacterial infection arising from plague. What Periodontal Disease Does to Your Teeth The bacterial infection is usually caused by food particles that get stuck and create plague. When the disease reaches the attachment to the teeth, it weakens the gum-line. This sometimes causes the gums to shrink back or recede, which can then expose the areas of the mouth near the roots, which puts the roots in danger. Not only does gum recession effect the health of your teeth, but it can affect the appearance of your mouth and smile. How Periodontal Plastic Surgery Can Help There are different types of procedures, including free gingival grafting, and connective tissue grafting, that can help maximize your oral health. Grafting procedures take gum tissue or resembling gum tissue and transplants it to the recession site. This can restore the gum attachment to the teeth, making your gums less vulnerable to decay and other infections, as well as restore the appearance. Periodontal plastic surgery is a cosmetic procedure; however, it provides many more benefits that just improving the appearance of your mouth and smile. This type of procedures strengthens the gum line and increases the oral health of your teeth and gums. If you have any questions about periodontal surgery, or you would like more information about options for you, please call our office and our periodontists can certainly help....
