If you are suffering from receding gums due to periodontal disease, you may be a candidate for gum grafting services at our Ogden office. Here at the office of Dr. Aaron T. Ward, we proudly offer cutting-edge grafting services, to help your body begin generating new, healthy gum tissue. A gum graft, also known as a soft tissue graft, is a piece of gingival tissue that is transplanted, to support your gum structures and stimulate new growth. This unique procedure can be used to correct gum recession, or fix an uneven gum line.
Only a few periodontists are experts at gum grafting; Ogden’s Dr. Aaron T. Ward is one of them. Our team will take the time to assess your unique situation and dental needs, before creating a customized plan for gum grafting treatment. Gum grafts may be taken from either another area of your mouth (typically other gums, or from the roof of your mouth), or from our reputable medical tissue bank. A qualified gum grafting specialist in Ogden will be able to tell you which option is best for you. For some patients, we may also add in certain proteins that encourage faster healing and stimulate your body’s own ability to grow gum tissue.
Gum grafts are typically used to correct receding gums, which are typically caused by periodontal disease or overaggressive tooth brushing. If this isn’t treated correctly, this condition may lead to eventual tooth loss and potential bone structure issues. Advanced gum grafting procedures can not only prevent these outcomes, but can also improve the look of your smile. When you’re ready to learn more about soft tissue grafting or receding gum surgery at our Ogden clinic, get in touch with us at 801-394-6651. We look forward to taking good care of you!
"I visited several dentists before choosing Doctor Ward. I can’t express how happy I am with my decision. I haven’t stopped smiling since I left his office. He was professional and friendly, as was his staff. If I had to undergo this procedure again I would choose Doctor Ward again and again. Thank you Doctor Ward and staff. You have changed my life forever!!!"
"I've been very fortunate in selecting Dr. Ward to do the implant surgery I had been investigating for over a year. I am still going through the process, but I couldn't be happier with what he has done so far. I received a very thorough consultation before having the work done. The process was painless and recovery was a breeze. At my follow-up visits, he takes time to answer all my questions and makes sure that any issues I'm having are resolved. I trust his work and advice completely. His assistants and office staff are very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Ward."
