What is Soft Tissue Grafting?
Periodontal disease occurs when the gums in your mouth start to recede and shift away from surrounding teeth, usually caused by gum disease and insufficient dental care and maintenance. The recess and wear in gum lines expose the sensitive root areas to open air resulting in the possibility of chronic infection. The gap between the gum and teeth makes a pocket that creates room for bacteria to collect and build up, damaging the enamel protecting sensitive root ends, and causing plaque and inflammation.
The process of the gums receding is a long one, where the gum tissue wears down gradually. For most patients the disease goes unnoticed and untreated until the symptoms become extremely severe. Some of these symptoms include increased sensitivity around the root of the tooth and other cosmetic issues.
Since your gums are the only barrier protecting the sensitive root of the teeth from bacteria and other infectious elements, it is imperative that you get the disease treated as soon as possible. At Nu Image, we can provide you with tissue grafting treatments done by our experienced and professional periodontist, Dr. Hana Hobbs.
