Gum recession causes, symptoms and treatment at the QRD Dental Clinic
Treatment of gum recession in QRD Dental Clinic
Treatment for gum recession depends on the severity. There are three types in total:
- light – when the gum has dropped by 1-3 mm
- medium – 3-5 mm
- severe – gum loss is more than 5 mm
A mild degree of recession is amenable to conservative treatment, consisting of anti-inflammatory therapy, professional oral hygiene and correction of hygiene measures carried out at home.
A periodontist carries out treatment of mild recessions according to existing protocols. With timely treatment, the prognosis of conservative treatment is favourable.
In more advanced cases, surgical treatment is performed when the effectiveness of anti-inflammatory therapy is questionable, and the degree of recession is moderate or severe.
That can be a flap operation – when an incision is made on the gum, the flap is lifted and the root is cleaned, then the gum fragment is attached to the tooth.
Or local gingival plasty – a flap is taken from the patient’s palate for plasty, or if more tissue is needed, a flap made of an artificial material based on collagen is used. Thus, the missing tissues are built up as part of the operation.
Both types of surgical treatment are performed under local anaesthesia. They are characterized by a short recovery period while successfully solving the problem of recessions and restoring the aesthetic appearance of the gum cover.
In the QRD Dental clinic, surgical treatment is performed by a dentist – a surgeon with extensive experience and compliance with world protocols, which guarantees an effective solution to the problem and the absence of complications.
Also, after the operation, the doctor will give all recommendations for recovery and will be in touch 24/7 in case of discomfort or questions.
Price of gum recession treatment
The cost of treating recessions will depend on each case. To understand the price of the upcoming treatment, you must first get a consultation with a dentist. The doctor will assess the condition of the oral cavity, prescribe additional examinations if necessary, and draw up a treatment plan, forming the final cost.
In some cases, it may also be necessary to consult a surgeon who will perform gum plastic surgery if conservative treatment is not possible at the time of treatment. The doctor evaluates the condition of the gums before and after the surgical treatment and provides a guarantee. That is what distinguishes the QRD Dental clinic from other dentistry. The competence of our doctors allows us to guarantee all the services of the clinic and be responsible for the final result.
