gum graftingOur team at the LANAP & Implant Center wants to honor Gum Disease Awareness Month by giving you the tools to prevent this potentially devastating infection.

We do that, in part, by providing a vast range of integrated dentistry services in our Collegeville and South Williamsport practices so that you not only have the resources to improve your oral health but also to optimize your total wellness moving forward.

But another way we try to help our patients is with our dental blog, where we share information about problems that can affect your smile and the advanced solutions we offer to keep it strong and healthy.

Today, we’re talking about state-of-the-art gum grafting at the LANAP & Implant Center that uses more comfortable, effective methods for restoring unhealthy gums than you’ll likely find in most standard dental practices!

Why Your Gums Are Receding…

Receding gums not only leave your tooth roots exposed and vulnerable, but it puts you in danger of losing your teeth! Gum recession can lead to increased tooth sensitivity, painful or limited oral function, and a number of other problems with your dental health.

We can restore the health and appearance of your gums, and even replace any teeth you’ve lost as a result, but to enjoy better oral health over the long term, it’s important to understand what led to your gum recession in the first place so you can work to prevent it in the future.

Some common reasons your gums might recede are:

  • Genetics
  • Gum disease
  • Brushing teeth too vigorously
  • Untreated dental injuries
  • Lack of routine dental care
  • Hormone changes

Bounce Back With A Gum Graft Procedure!

Your teeth need a stable foundation, which means you need a way to restore and strengthen recessed gums and protect your smile moving forward.

At the LANAP & Implant Center, we perform gum grafting procedures using state-of-the-art methods that optimize patient comfort, treatment success, and smooth recovery. Using donor-less tissue from the roof of your mouth, we can cover exposed tooth roots where your gums have receded and applied plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF) from your own blood sampling to the area for faster, easier healing. We’re able to use PRGF as part of our gum graft procedures, something you won’t find in a typical dental practice, thanks to our advanced training and specialization.

It’s another way we go above and beyond to invest in our patients and create the most comfortable, positive experiences we can for each and every one of you!
