This is a local physician with advanced gum recession. She was told that gum grafting was not an option and that a pink colored bonding material should be placed on her root. Upon consultation with Dr. Orphanos, she was assured that a new procedure, the new minimally invasive microsurgical technique available at the Dental Implant & Specialty Center could correct her recession.
This patient had severe recession of her lower front tooth. She decided to pursue a minimally invasive microsurgical gum graft technique by Dr. Orphanos. The after photo was taken 1 week after her procedure. This minimally invasive approach by Dr. Orphanos results in little to no post-operative discomfort.
This patient is a young 27 year old female with recession. She was referred to Dr. Orphanos for a microsurgical gum grafting procedure. The procedure was 100% successful and the roots were completely covered. Recession results in exposed root surface which is not made up of enamel, but a much softer substance called cementum. This root surface / cementum is prone to decay quite readily, which is why gum grafting to cover the roots was performed. The gum grafting procedure no longer entails taking the gum graft from the roof of the mouth ( palate ). A variety of grafting materials can be purchased, thereby avoiding the need to take the gum graft from the roof of the mouth.
