Gum Grafting

Case 1

This patient with a huge amount of gum recession on her upper and lower teeth. There were a number of reasons for this, the most important being that the patient was genetically predisposed to thin gums. Over the years the patients gums had been getting progressively worse and the patient needed a solution. The upper and lower gums were grafted using a material called Alloderm. The results have provided extra gum bulk and also allowed us to reposition the teeth back to where they originally were. In addition, we have also built up all the teeth with white filling material, as she had suffering from dental erosion over the years.

Case 2

This patient with a huge amount of gum recession on her upper teeth, especially the eye teeth. There were a number of reasons for this, the most important being that the patient was genetically predisposed to thin gums. Over the years the patients gums had been getting progressively worse and the patient needed a solution. The upper gum was grafted using a material called Alloderm. The results have provided extra gum bulk and also allowed us to reposition the gum back to where they originally were.

Case 3

This patient had a huge amount of gum recession on his upper teeth. There were a number of reasons for this, the most important being that the patient was genetically predisposed to thin gums. Over the years the patients gums had been getting progressively worse and the patient needed a solution. The upper and lower gums were grafted using a material called Alloderm. The results have provided extra gum bulk and also allowed us to reposition the teeth back to where they originally were.

Case 4

This patient was suffering from a lot of hot/cold sensitivity and was also concerned about the aesthetics of her longish teeth. Gum grafting was carried out using a gum substitute (Alloderm) to provide thicker gums at the pre-recession levels. The patient stated that her sensitivity had completely disappeared.

Case 5

This patient was concerned about the gum recession and in particular the 'long in the tooth' appearance. A gum substitute (Alloderm) was grafted to provide thicker bulk for the gums at the original pre-recession position. The improvement in aesthetics highlights the importance of the gum in tooth aesthetics.

Case 6

This patient had a number of treatments carried out from gum grafting to implants and white fillings. However, the gum grafting has been carried out using a gum substitute (Alloderm). This has resulted in a huge improvement of the proportionality and aesthetics of her smile.

Testimonial

Patient Name
Dentist Name

QouteWhen I had my first consultation with Rory, he clearly explained what work could be done, how long it would take and what it would cost. I could se his certificates on the wall for young dentist of the year, so it made me feel that I would be in good hands. From day 1, Rory and Carol were always very courteous and friendly. Rory made me feel very relaxed, as he himself is clearly relaxed be cause he sings while he works, which helped take my mind of what was actually happening. As I had various procedures done, Rory explained very clearly if there would be any pain, swelling etc. involved and how long it would take.

Most important of all, Rory is a perfectionist and this is the best quality of all to have in a dentist, as when the work is completed you know it could not be done any better. All in all, I feel Rory did an excellent job and I am delighted with the results.Qoute

Case 7

This patient was unhappy with the appearance of the discoloured areas in her upper left side teeth. In addition, she was also getting sensitivity to cold foods. Gum was taken from the roof of her mouth and grafted into the recessed site. The final result restored the bulkiness of the gum and also improved the aesthetics and sensitivity issues.
