Plastic surgery for receding gums is being recommended by most dentists because of its excellent post-operative effect. Before performing gum graft surgery, you will be examined to select the appropriate gum tissue to implant into the receding gum.

After the implant is complete, the dentist will sew up the wound, cover the gums, and the receding gums with an artificial biofilm. After only about 6 weeks after surgery, the wound has healed and after 1 year, the gum tissue will achieve its original structure.
Thanks to gum graft surgery, the gums are restored to damage, preventing and reconstructing the original gum shape, helping to prevent the gums and teeth from being destroyed. However, with mild cases of receding gums, you will not need surgical intervention, but you may be prescribed antibiotics to eliminate harmful bacteria and prevent their multiplication.
