Gum Graft Surgery in Turkey

Gum graft surgery in Turkey is a popular oral surgery that can tackle gingival recession problems involving gum tissue atrophy around one tooth or an entire row of teeth. Various factors can give rise to gingival recession and periodontitis when bone tissue is destroyed causing tooth root exposure or due to improper oral hygiene, occlusion problems, chronic disease, smoking, and gum problems due to incorrect teeth cleaning.

Tooth implantation is among one of our most popular dental services.

Installing artificial teeth to replace a lost one depends on gum health. The presence of healthy gums is necessary to support the dental implant.

Some casual factors include:

  • Soft tissue atrophy after prolonged tooth absence
  • Tissue recession with inflammatory diseases
  • Gingival maldevelopment due to genetic factors

With the latest technologies, gum irregularities may not be a serious obstruction to dental implants.

Purpose of gum graft surgery

  • Augmentation of the gums around the implant
  • Formation of a gum cuff
  • Create the necessary volume of mucous membrane for a gingival crest around your artificial tooth;
  • Bone protection with restored gum into the implanted zone

How to perform gum graft surgery

When there is insufficient soft tissues, transplant from another part of oral cavity, can be carried out. A gum graft will be transplanted by the dentist to stop the problem of gum recession.

The treatment is done surgically and initially, the dentist will remove any lesions in the working area to lessen inflammation. Gum graft surgery does not involve any pain since it is done under local anaesthesia. The surgeon peels off different flaps of soft tissue in oral cavity to transplant the gum, The dentist cleans the space beneath such flaps, reduces inflammation, removes food residue, and repairs the root cement.

Kinds of gum graft surgery

Before proceeding to gum graft surgery, our anaesthesiologist will administer anaesthesia.

This method is used when there is thin gingival tissues. Our surgeon prepares a hole in the gum for the graft. A gum graft of 2-3 mm will be taken from the palate and fixed on the gum.

Connective tissue transplantation

This procedure can help in treating your exposed tooth roots. Our surgeon will take connective tissues from the mucous membrane of palate and then SCTG will be stitched to gingival tissues and treated with antiseptic as well as regenerating solutions.

This kind of gum graft surgery is used when you have sufficient gum tissue around your tooth. The tissue will be taken from a donor area which is in adjacent parts of gum. The intervention includes transplantation of the rotated gum flap towards your tooth root.
