Depending on the insurance provider, gum surgery may be covered. We can send a preauthorization to determine if your insurance company will cover this procedure.
Keeping your teeth and gums healthy and clean is the only way to prevent gum disease. Brushing twice a day with a soft or electric tooth brush and flossing daily are extremely important as well as having regular cleanings as suggested by our dental hygienist in preventing gum disease.
This procedure can be done in a dentist’s office depending on severity. If the procedure is more severe, the patient may be referred to a Periodontist which is a dentist with special training specifically in helping to restore gum tissues and perform gum surgery.
Gum surgery is recommended when the gums have receded to an unhealthy level.
