Soft tissue regeneration

Book Appointment

Receding gums can bring about complications both with the health of your mouth and the appearance of your teeth. Characterised by the gums pulling away from the teeth, gum recession can also result in unpleasant physical symptoms including increased tooth sensitivity and loose teeth. Gum recession also brings about unwanted aesthetic changes to your smile, resulting in a gum-heavy appearance, as more of the gums become exposed overtime. We understand that such changes can be emotionally challenging for patients, leading to a drop in confidence and self-esteem.

If you’re experiencing changes to your gums as a consequence of gum recession, at Complex Smile we can help to reverse these, so you can improve your periodontal health and get smiling again as soon as possible.

Soft tissue regeneration uses grafted tissue from elsewhere in the mouth, to replenish the lost gum matter at other sites in the mouth. Whilst the phrase ‘gum graft’ may sound a little daunting, this procedure is actually a simple one to undergo. We can also offer sedation if you’re a little nervous about treatment.

Post-treatment you can expect to have an even gum-to-tooth ratio that looks aesthetically pleasing and a healthier mouth.

The causes of gum recession include:

  • Chronically brushing your teeth too hard.
  • Gum disease.
  • Tooth misalignment.
  • Tooth grinding.
  • Use of tobacco products.
  • Genetics.
  • Hormonal changes.

Supporting you after treatment

At Complex Smile, we believe in enduring relationships with our patients. Post treatment for receding gums, we will recommend that you come in and see us for regular hygienist appointments, so that the possibility of needing a graft in the future is kept to a minimum.

Procedure

1
Step 1

Examination

We take a close look at your teeth and the soft tissues in your mouth, making sure there isn’t evidence of any severe decay or disease, as this will affect the new tissue growth. Your teeth are cleaned prior to treatment, so that any plaque and tartar is removed.

2
Step 2

Grafting

The type of soft tissue used for gum grafting is obtained from the roof of your mouth. Under local anaesthetic, we will carefully remove a small amount of soft tissue and this is then stitched into the treatment site, where the gum recession has occurred.

    Everyone at Complex Smile was friendly and helpful and I was happy with my treatments. I was quite anxious about my treatments (implant and veneer) but the dentists made me feel at ease. They made sure I understood everything and made sure I was happy with everything. The receptionist was also really friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend

    I came at complex smile for just one implant after checking 3 different clinics.. I had an absolutely great experience. I have chosen Complex smile because the specialist goes straight to the point, no one in the clinic is wasting their time about trying to sell you treatment you didn't come for. Even when I had an emergency 2 days before Christmas the specialist did everything to see me at the clinic despite he was on holidays. I live now on the other side of the city but I will keep them for my regular hygiene check. Thank you so much for everything, I can finally now eat normally !
