Periodontal Plastic Surgery is a surgical procedure whose main objective is to correct defects in the gums that bother you aesthetically and that take away your genuine desire to smile on a daily basis.
After the surgery, the harmonization of the smile has a significant improvement. However, the performance of Periodontal Plastic Surgery is conditioned to the individual’s good oral health. Due to this, any oral and dental problem must be treated before this procedure.
In general, the main complaints that lead people to seek Periodontal Plastic Surgery are the recession of the gums or its excess (known as gummy smile), whether they are natural or consequences of mechanical trauma or sequelae of some previous treatment.
In cases where there is gum recession, a graft is made on the individual’s gums. In cases where the problem is a gummy smile, the desired results are achieved through subtractive techniques.
Just like the teeth, the gums are extremely important for the harmony of dental aesthetics. A healthy gum should have a rosy appearance, without any redness, swelling, recession or even exaggerated growth on the teeth. When there is the existence of any of these aspects, it is necessary to seek a professional for an evaluation.
