There are 2 types of dental implants
The main objective of gum grafting is to combat gum recession and reverse its effects. Gum recession refers to the shrinking of the gums around the roots of certain teeth. Several factors can cause gum recession, including periodontal disease, poor (overly aggressive) tooth brushing technique or using a toothbrush with hard bristles. Problems such as bruxism or dental malocclusion can also be the cause of receding gums. In other cases, natural aging is the cause.
As there are several types of grafts, a preliminary consultation is necessary. During this visit, we will determine which one you need.
It is sometimes necessary to do a bone graft before doing an implant, if your jawbone is atrophied.
Advances in the field have seen the introduction of materials that allow bone grafts to be made from either animal, human or synthetic materials.
This new material is used in most bone grafts, simplifying the process. A consultation is necessary to determine the quality of your bone.
