One of those things is cosmetic surgery in order to restore the appearance of your gum tissue.
Surgery Following Gum DiseaseThere are a few different procedures that can be used to treat the appearance of your gums after gum disease. One of them is gum graft surgery. When you have gum graft surgery, your oral surgeon takes healthy gum tissue and grafts it into your smile in a place where the gum tissue has receded.
This has a few effects. First, it helps to protect tender and vulnerable tooth roots, and helps restore stability to your teeth. Second, it restores the appearance of your smile: instead of having teeth that are too exposed and unsightly, you'll have a smile that looks natural and healthy.
Your dentist can give you more information about plastic surgery after gum disease.
