Exposed roots can become increasingly sensitive to hot and cold foods as gum recession (receding gums) progresses.  Advanced cases can leave patients more susceptible to root cavities (caries).

MINIMALLY INVASIVE GUM GRAFTING FOR RECEDING GUMS

A gingival graft extracts a thin piece of tissue from the roof of the mouth or gently moves it over from healthy adjacent areas to surround the tooth with stable attached gingiva. Place the graft in such a manner that covers already exposed root sections.

WHY RECEDING GUMS OCCURS

PERIODONTAL GUM DISEASE

Periodontal Gum Disease & Gingivitis can cause gum recession.

CLENCHING & GRINDING

Clenching and grinding your teeth can lead to receding gums.

CAVITY NEAR GUM LINE

Cavities near the gum line causes loss of tooth and gum structure on the root causing the gums to erode.

BRUSHING TOO HARD

Brushing too hard can cause gum recession (receding gums) from the physical trauma.

HOME CARE INSTRUCTIONS

In order to allow the best and quickest healing, Dr. Soordhar will provide you with specific instructions and medications after your Root Canal Treatment.

Here are some general tips on how to make your root canal treatment recovery as quick and painless as possible:

  • Take the pain killer medication and antibiotics as prescribed and on time.  Do not skip any dose or stop taking the medication because you are feeling better, the medication is helping with your recovery.

  • Use hot salt water rinses every 4-6 hours; the water should be hot enough to be able to drink and not burn yourself.

  • Minimize biting or chewing on hard foods on the gum grafting side for 2-4 weeks.

  • Brush and floss your teeth normally except on the side of the surgery an duse saltwater and a Q-Tip to "brush your teeth"
