With technological advances of latest decades, dentistry has been extremely benefited, as well as the patients, who can now make use of modern and efficient treatments, such as Gingival Recession Treatment and Immediate Rehabilitation with Implants.
Gingival recession treatment – Technology at your disposal
The rehabilitative ideal solution to be chosen when the patient suffers from advanced gingival recession have always been a dilemma in odontology. Until the 90´s, there was not enough technology to perform a satisfactory root coverage.
Dental sensitivity combined with aesthetic problems are the major complaints of patients with gingival recession.
Today, we are able to solve these problems performing the gum graft surgery in the patient. Currently, can be performed a covering of exposed roots, which can bring serious problems to the patient, such as tooth sensitivity, for example.
If you have gingival recession, be aware that there is a cure.
Immediate rehabilitation with implants: technical possibilities
Implants are a reality today. And a reality at your fingertips. Think of a rehabilitative ideal solution to be chosen if there is not the possibility of placing implants.
Until the 90s, there was not sufficient technology for immediate implant placement. Aesthetic problems are the major complaints of patients who have lost their teeth for dental fractures.
Today, we are able to solve these problems through immediate implementation surgery and prostheses over implant placement.
Through the advance of dentistry, the result of an implant and/or prosthesis over implant placed immediately after removal of fractured tooth can have very positive results, bringing instant gratification to the patient.
