Gum Surgery and Recovery
Following gum surgery recovery times will vary from patient to patient. The procedure and recovery advise given by your dentist will depend on the extent of the gum disease.
– Gum surgery may be required to prevent loss of teeth, reduce the gap between gums and teeth, or repair damaged bone and tissue.
– A dentist will advise on pain relief following gum surgery.
– A good oral care routine is important in maintaining teeth after gum surgery.
Following any dental procedure, a dentist will provide detailed instructions on how to achieve the best possible recovery. Recovery times will depend on the extent of the procedure taking place.
