Why do gums recede? Which are the treatments for gingival or gum recession?


This 3D video of Clínica Médico Dental Pardiñas (http://j.mp/cPardinas) talks about the presence of a gum recession covering a tooth due to a lack of attached gingiva. Two grafting techniques to cover receding gums are described: one with a connective tissue graft obtained from the palate and the other with a graft material different from the individual. The resolution of gingival recession is also shown by using these techniques.

Sometimes, patients with wide smiles detect that their gums are receding from one or more teeth, making their smiles less attractive. Today these problems can be solved with mucogingival surgery techniques that offer excellent results.

As always, it is necessary to make a correct diagnosis of the case, analyse the causes and then choose the correct technique for your specific case.

First, it is important to rule out the existence of underlying periodontal disease (pyorrhea), in which case it must be treated first. Once we have analysed the case and obtained the necessary conclusions, we take the decision to carry out the surgery. To do so there are different techniques that we can perform.

We can perform different techniques such as a sub-epithelial graft (a connective tissue graft taken from the palate and placed at the recession area; the graft is then covered by gum from this area). Another is to make a displaced flap (taking the gum next to the recession to move it to the area of recession). We can also use different materials of both animal and human origin such as collagen or the acellular dermal matrix.
