About the
Preventive

The recession itself is caused over a period of time, often by plaque, overly aggressive brushing, orthodontics or trauma from e.g. lip/tongue piercings. You may be at more risk of recession depending on the position of your teeth in the jaw as well as the thickness of your gum and bone. 

Our bespoke prescription is designed to successfully prevent and treat existing gum recession following on from The RW Perio Specialist Assessment. Aligned with the rest of your body healthy gums ensure an immediate sign of health and vitality. This is a simple procedure that aligns both health and aesthetics. Treating gum recession can instantly restore confidence and can often have a positive long-term impact on the entire smile aesthetics. This advanced surgical procedure ensures minimal disruption to your lifestyle, with fast recovery and little downtime afterwards.

The RW Perio Preventive can involve both non-surgical and minimally invasive surgical techniques. If a non-surgical approach is taken this will involve disinfecting using piezo and airflow technology, applying serum to the exposed root to strengthen it, and designing a bespoke regime for home care to avoid further recession. With surgery, the aim is to cover the exposed root and thicken the gums to prevent further recession and additionally improve aesthetics.

If surgery is completed we recommend taking the day of the surgery off. If anaesthetic has been used the mouth will be numb for up to 2 hours post-treatment, however you will look and sound normal due to the advanced anaesthetic we use.

Soft foods will be required for up to 5 days and over-the-counter painkillers may be taken for a few days as needed. Your bespoke instructions will be clearly communicated to you in advance.
