Gum Surgery in Teaneck, NJ with Dr. Susan Goldfarb
Dr. Goldfarb will ensure you are properly numb for the procedure. An incision is made and your gums are pulled away to expose your tooth and its root. The area is cleaned of bacteria and hardened plaque. The bone is then smoothed where bacteria have caused it to become rough, which encourages healing and reattachment of the gums. Your gum tissue is trimmed to match the new structure and stitches are placed for healing. Pain medication can be given if needed, and follow-up appointments are scheduled for suture removal and a one month post-procedure check.
You might experience some sensitivity due to your gum line being a little lower than it was before, and the level of the new gum line may also make the teeth look longer.
