The gums are treated with surgical treatments to change the shape and position of the gum margin. It can be done either by enlarging (through crown lengthening), if the teeth are very small, or covering it (through surgeries coating recessions in teeth or implants) as the root of the teeth is exposed.
Before choosing a surgical procedure, specialists in Periodontology conducted a thorough analysis of the case in order to determine the purpose of the surgery: if you have to gain or improve tissue if you have to increase the volume around the teeth or implants, etc. .
There are different techniques that can be achieved by coating recessions or gain a better fabric:
- Free grafts, with the recession is coated keratinized gingiva is won or the bottom of the lobby is increased. With these grafts is a recipient area and donor area.
- Pedunculated techniques with which displace the gingiva from place to place, and the recipient and donor area practically coincide. This technique is applied in the coating recessions.
The truth is that there are multiple alternatives and techniques, so the ideal is fastidiously to the periodontology to assess each case in order to integrate it within the multidisciplinary treatment (orthodontics, prosthetics, aesthetics, etc.).
