By periodontal recession is meant the famous "loosening" of the teeth.
The report is simple, the gum tends to regress and thus reveal a larger part of the dental crown, before exposing sometimes even the root of the tooth.
These recessions can cause sensitivities or even pain, or disturb the patient aesthetically. In any case, they should be treated before the chances of success are too low.
Here again the etiologies (causes) are multiple: anatomy, trauma, occlusion (that is to say the contacts of the teeth with each other), inadequate brushing technique, iatrogenic treatment etc.
After a consultation with the periodontologist, a diagnosis is made, and a technique is indicated whose purpose is simple: cover a maximum (sometimes 100%) recession, and then find a healthy periodontal environment.
Beyond the myth of "gum transplant operation", these techniques are practically painless today thanks to our micro-surgery techniques, and to the per and postoperative comfort that we strive to establish in each one. of our patients.
