There are many reasons why an individual may require cosmetic gum surgery in Brookfield, as well as different types of gum surgery that can be performed. If you are experiencing bleeding, gums, pain, swelling or discomfort in your jaw around your teeth, sensitivity to cold or hot foods and liquids, then you may have symptoms of gum disease or an infection requiring gum surgery.
The most common form of gum disease in periodontitis. Typical treatment for early stages of periodontitis is root planning and scaling and/or antibiotics, but gum surgery in Brookfield may be necessary if these initial treatments are ineffective.
Other types of gum surgery include a gingivectomy, in which diseased gum tissue is removed, a flap procedure, in which teeth and bone damage caused by gum disease is cleaned and repaired, or gum grafts, in which new gum tissue replaces badly damaged gum tissue.
The need for gum surgery in Wisconsin could of course be avoided entirely if you consistently practice good oral hygiene and dental care. Seeing you dentist regularly and heeding his advice on how to properly care for your teeth and gums is essential to a healthy mouth.
