Enfield, Connecticut (PRWEB) August 04, 2014
Dr. Rashmi Patel has announced that he is now able to offer cosmetic gum recontouring through his practice, Enfield Family Dental. The procedure is often performed using a laser, which allows the process to be considered minimally invasive while being significantly more effective for patients. The gum recontouring process is often used to correct cosmetic issues relating to the position of the gumline, which many people refer to as having a “gummy smile.” Dr. Patel is able to address this issue and several other cosmetic gum issues through the use of this new laser procedure.
Gum recontouring is most often used to even out the gumline so that the gums properly frame the teeth. Excess gum tissue can easily be removed through the use of a laser, which actually helps in accelerating the healing process. This procedure results in gums and teeth that are in the proper proportion, which can have a significant effect on the appearance of an individual’s smile.
It is also possible for Dr. Patel to address issues relating to gum recession through the newly available services he now offers. Through the use of a gum graft, Dr. Patel is able to comfortably remove tissue from the roof of the patient’s mouth and replace it in the locations that are suffering from gum recession. Receding gums are a common issue among patients, and failing to address this issue can have an impact that goes far beyond cosmetic. Allowing gum recession to remain untreated can lead to increased sensitivity and may even cause the teeth to become loose, so seeking treatment is highly recommended.
Patients who are suffering from receding gums or a “gummy smile” should contact Enfield Family Dental at their earliest convenience in order to schedule an appointment for consultation. While most people are generally eligible for this procedure, it is still important that the doctor is able to discuss the various treatment options that may be available to each individual patient. The doctor will also be able to discuss the nature of the procedure and any other details that are relevant.
