Periodontal Plastic Surgery

Have you noticed your teeth are longer than they used to be?

It doesn´t matter how old you are, your gums can be at risk. The reasons are several: plaque accumulation, previous orthodontic treatment, occlusion problems, or even a deficient brushing technique, amongst others.

Gingival recession consists of the migration of the gums margin from its normal position within the crown-root limit to lower positioning below this limit, exposing the surface of the tooth´s root.

Gingival recession can be corrected with periodontal plastic surgery, in which a partial or total covering of the tooth´s root is performed, bringing back the esthetic of a smile and avoiding plaque accumulation. If this gingival recession is not corrected and it is left unattended, it can enlarge to the point that it can cause tooth loss.
