Visit our dental oasis—we are waiting for you!
If your gums’ appearance when you smile has always bothered you, or if you have only recently developed issues about your gums, our friendly and devoted team at Oasispark Dental can help.
We understand the thought of gum reshaping surgery in Newmarket, ON, might induce fear and discomfort. But it may be highly recommended, based on your situation, or it may just be the cosmetic improvement you need to help improve your smile.
When is it needed? Risks of not getting it done
Some people might find their gums are more noticeable than other people’s when they smile. Rather than always caused by genetics and simply inheriting this facial attribute, a so-called “gummy” smile may be caused by health concerns or certain medications.
On the other hand, gum recession may result from brushing too hard or even periodontal disease (where your gums and bones are no longer sufficiently supporting your teeth). It can make teeth appear longer than usual and result in significant oral health and dental issues, including tooth loss or tooth decay.
What is gingivoplasty?
This dental treatment reshapes your gums’ look around your teeth, where you may have areas of extra gum tissue or abnormally shaped gums covering your teeth. A gingivoplasty in Newmarket, ON, gently trims the gum line to appear more natural and expose more of your teeth. We may also recommend a gum graft to add more gum tissue to areas that have receded and expose the roots of your teeth.
Is gum reshaping effective?
Patients with unusual gum growth may experience serious issues caused by pseudo pockets forming and accumulating food and bacteria underneath. Without a restoration treatment to help repair this problem, there is a high risk of developing gum disease that ultimately compromises your bone and teeth, and leads to tooth loss.
To help correct gum issues, our Oasispark dentist can perform gum reshaping in Newmarket, ON. We will administer local anesthesia along your gum line to help prevent pain or discomfort during the treatment. We will gently remove the damaged tissue and leave behind adequate gum tissue to protect the root of your tooth instead.
What can I expect after?
Following surgery, as your gums heal, patients usually experience minor and temporary soreness and irritation. But we will likely recommend over-the-counter painkillers or prescribe you something a bit stronger. Recovery time may range from just a few days up to a few weeks, depending on how you heal and your procedure’s unique circumstances.
Remember to eat soft foods and avoid others that are too spicy or have seeds, both of which could negatively impact your healing. We will also offer helpful directions to ease any discomfort you may experience while maintaining good oral hygiene in your recovery.
