More about this treatment

Gum Regeneration in Burgess Hill information

Our gum regeneration treatment in Burgess Hill involves lifting the gum to allow a graft to be placed underneath. Gum recession is very common but in some instances it can effect the appearance of your smile, making teeth appear longer and also leading to an increase in sensitivity. Rarely but in the worst cases it could cause you to lose teeth. Common causes of gum recession are overbrushing, gum disease and lip/tongue piercings. It is possible to perform a gum graft to thicken the gum in order to prevent further shrinkage and in some cases it is even possible to regrow the gum back over the tooth.

During your appointment a local anaesthetic injection will be placed into the gum next to the teeth being treated. When the gum and teeth are completely numb, the gum is gently lifted to allow a graft to be placed underneath. Finally the gum is stretched and replaced with a few small stitches covering the previously exposed tooth root. The most common place to take a graft is from the roof of the mouth, which contains thick and collagen rich connective tissue.

Gum Regeneration FAQs

What will I feel during Gum Regeneration Surgery?

The local anaesthetic injection will feel like a small sharp scratch or pinch, after which your gum and tooth will be numb. You now will not feel any pain during the treatment.

The numb sensation feels tingly or heavy around the teeth being treated including the  lips, chin, cheek and tongue. You can feel a sensation of pressure during the surgery which is not painful. If the gum graft is taken from the roof of the mouth a small plaster or sponge is stitched into the palate to protect it and help it heal.

How long does the treatment take?

The time spent performing a Regenerative Gum treatment is approximately 60-90 minutes and the total treatment time is 90-120 minutes.

Will I have to take time off work?

We recommend taking the rest of the day off work. Most people would have recovered enough to go back to work the next day. Every individual will heal at a different rate, so you may require an additional 1-5 days off work.

What can I expect afterwards?

The numb sensation generally lasts 2-4 hours. We do not recommend you chew any food or drink hot drinks while you are numb to prevent you from chewing your lip, cheek or tongue and burning your mouth. You are able to drink water straight after this treatment.

Some minor bleeding after treatment is normal and your saliva can appear pink for 24 hours afterwards. There can be some slight bruising and or swelling which usually settles after 3-5 days after treatment. There will be stitches which are removed after 14 days.

Will I be in pain afterwards?

It is common to feel some soreness after this treatment. We recommend taking a pain killer straight away, while you are still numb. We recommend Paracetamol and/or Ibuprofen, which is available over the counter. Taking pain killers will help prevent any immediate discomfort or pain. Every individual will experience a different level of soreness and so you may need to take pain killers for the next 1-5 days after treatment.

How successful is Gum Regeneration treatment?

The main reason to perform this treatment is to thicken the gum around the tooth root to halt future gum recession and thereby preventing you from losing teeth. This part of treatment is almost always successful. In some cases it is also possible to lift the gum back over the exposed tooth giving a better tooth appearance.
