Dentist in East Cobb GA
Periodontics is a field of dentistry that focuses on gum care and the bone structure that supports your teeth. A strong healthy foundation is needed for your teeth’s longevity. An unhealthy foundation puts your teeth at risk. It is easy to neglect the health of your gums unknowingly and as a result, infection or disease could develop.
Dr. Bezreh specializes in the health and supportive structure of gums. The Healthy Smiles of East Cobb team is trained in advanced periodontal therapy to restore the health of your gums and prevent future complications.
Soft tissue grafts are necessary when there is a significant amount of gum recession in a specific area. The slight gum recession can be improved if proactive steps are performed through your daily oral hygiene routine. When gums start to recede quickly, there is a greater risk for infection and bacterial penetration. If you have been exposed to bacterial penetration, you may feel greater sensitivity when eating hot or cold foods. When gums recede to the root, more dental issues are likely to follow. If the root of a tooth is softer than enamel, it is more susceptible to bacteria and plaque.
A soft tissue graft is used to improve proper gum levels and functionality. This procedure relocates healthy gum tissue from adjacent teeth or detaches soft tissue from the roof of the mouth. Dr. Bezreh ensures a high success rate. If prompt action is taken, periodontal surgery can be avoided by a soft tissue graft procedure.
Surgical Periodontal Therapy
Part of a first impression includes your smile. First impressions are formed from the appearance of your smile. Periodontal surgery can be helpful for improving the evenness of your gum line or lengthening teeth.
Periodontal surgery sculpts the gum line to be proportionate to the amount of exposed tooth to the gum. This will remove the excess gum and expose more of the tooth crown. Soft tissue grafts can extend the gum line to create an aesthetic balance to receded gums. Grafts also reduce gum pockets that are prone to future periodontal disease.
