Gingival Recession Treatment Options

    Gingival Recession Treatment Options

    Gingivitis (gum inflammation) is an early sign of periodontal disease. It causes bleeding and swelling in the gums and can cause tooth loss if left untreated.

    Laser Therapy

    Laser therapy uses light energy to treat various medical conditions. Lasers work by targeting tissue with heat, causing cells to die off. This process stimulates new cell growth and helps heal damaged tissues.

    Dental Implants

    A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that replaces the natural root of a tooth. It is usually made of titanium and is surgically inserted into the jawbone. Once the bone has healed, the crown (the visible part) is attached to the implant.

    Gum Surgery

    If you have gingivitis, periodontal disease, or other gum diseases, you might need gum surgery. This procedure removes damaged tissue and cleans up the area so that new healthy tissue can grow back.


    Periodontal Regeneration

    There are two main ways to treat gingival recession. One method involves removing the affected tissue and replacing it with bone graft material. Another option is to use a technique called guided tissue regeneration (GTR). GTR uses a barrier membrane to separate the affected tissue from the rest of the mouth. A second layer of tissue grows over the membrane, creating a space where new tissue can form.
