The RW Perio
A gum lift is one of the most requested aesthetic treatments and one of the most rewarding with results visible immediately.
The procedure is fast and effective with patients requiring minimal over-the-counter painkillers, and they can usually return to work the next day. To facilitate the healing process be prepared to avoid strenuous activities and stick to soft foods that will not irritate the fresh wound on the days immediately following the procedure. The surgery is minimally invasive, and the surgical site will be extremely discreet so you will be able to continue with your normal day-to-day schedule as normal the day after. Full healing can take up to 3 months and a personalised aftercare plan will be tailored specifically for your case.
We recommend taking the day of the surgery off. 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.
