Restore Your Gumline With Gum Grafts in Collegeville & South Williamsport
If your gums have receded, your smile’s appearance is affected. You can also end up losing teeth and bone. Our dentists at the LANAP and Implant Center will stop the underlying cause of your gum recession, whether it’s gum disease or something else. They also may use gum grafts to restore your gumline and prevent possible bone loss.
Gum grafting will:
- Prevent you from losing teeth caused by bone loss
- Cover exposed tooth roots so your teeth aren’t sensitive
- Keep bacteria from getting in between teeth and gums, where it can cause extensive dental damage
- Give your gumline a more attractive look
Experience Comfortable Gum Grafting With Homeopathic Care & PRGF
Our doctors do all they can to make your gum graft procedure fast and comfortable and to ensure a speedy recovery. They use:
- Donor-less Tissue – Some dentists take tissue from the roof of your mouth. We don’t, which means much less discomfort and time for you.
- The Wand® – With this computerized anesthesia delivery system, you won’t feel the burning or stinging sensation that can result when receiving anesthesia with a syringe. Plus, you won’t have unpleasant lingering numbness for hours following your procedure.
During your procedure, you can get one of two kinds of safe dental sedation. Once the tissue is in place, our dentists apply plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF). This substance is created by collecting a small blood sample from you and using a special process to promote your blood’s own power to heal. This helps ensure a speedy recovery. You can also take advantage of our homeopathic care for even faster healing.
Treat Gum Disease With LANAP
If gum disease caused your gums to recede, our dentists will treat it with our LANAP procedure. With LANAP, they use a laser to painlessly remove your diseased tissue. There is no cutting or stitching, so healing is faster and the risk of infection is lower too. The FDA-approved laser protocol also encourages your gum tissue to regenerate itself.
