This can be achieved through the surgical removal of a part of a gum from the roof of your mouth in order to place them in the receded gum. As a result, a gum doctor or a surgeon is responsible for performing this dental surgery that is considered to be quite simple and prompt.
This procedure is also called gingival enlargement. The opposite of this treatment is gingivectomy, performed in case of gingival hyperplasia.

Recent studies prove that 4% to 12% of adults do not notice gum recession until it becomes more serious.

How it works ?
What are the indications for this procedure?
Tooth loss will be the outcome of the deterioration of oral health due to a gum recession that is not treated. The signs of a sick gum is sensitive teeth or a gum that bleed easily.
Gum tissue graft surgery is executed for two rationales:
On one hand, some people want to have a better smile. So, gum graft is performed for cosmetic reasons. On the other hand, the exposed teeth are protected and any damage is repaired thanks to gum enlargement.
Is Gum recession treatment painful?
Unfortunately, most of the gum recession treatments are painful and very invasive. In the majority of cases, they involve deep modeling and root shaving, which can lead to pain and discomfort. Modeling and cutting aim to deeply clean below the surface of the gingivae to remove the plaque and germs that lead to gum disease.
Gingivae enlargement is the most common treatment for gum disease that’s usually done in the worst cases of gum recession. The purpose of this procedure is to restore lost gingivae. In this treatment, part of the gingivae is taken from the top area of the patient’s mouth (roof) and grafted or to the area that has lost its gingivae around the tooth.
After the healing of the grafted area, it can protect the exhibited tooth roots and create a more esthetic appearance.
What does Gum Tissue Grafting procedure involve?
The most appropriate technique of gum grafting is chosen after the discussion of various types of surgeries with a periodontist. During the procedure, a local anesthetic is administered in order to make the treatment painless.

Notre accompagnatrice a été impeccable.
Je déplore juste trois points :
* Le transfert vers l’hôpital a été chaotique. Le chauffeur est arrivé avec une demi heure d'avance et est reparti pour une raison inconnue le temps de descendre des chambres.
Après échanges avec les services de Turquie Santé, le chauffeur est enfin revenu. A noter que le chauffeur ne parlait que le turque. Donc impossible de communiquer avec lui. Nous sommes arrivés avec plus d'une demie-heure de retard que j'ai signalée à Turquie Santé, qui m'a certifié que tout serait réorganisé.
* Arrivée au Mémorial, aucune personne pour nous orienter. La personne à l’accueil ne parle que turque.
On a fini par trouver le service et s’enregistrer. Après 45' d'attente Read moreSee less
