Gum Grafting in Queens - by Queens Periodontist Victor Terranova
The following video below is a testimonial by a Queens patient who received a gingival gum graft after having severe recession on his mandibular (lower) canine teeth. Dr. Terranova performed an Allograft gingival graft. The patient gave a testimonial after.
Just as with one missing tooth, several missing teeth can be easily treated with dental implants. Implant supported teeth are permanently fixed in the mouth, unlike removable appliances like dentures. They don’t slip or click, and there is no worry about them moving or falling out when speaking, eating, or participating in activities. And because dental implants are placed directly into the bone, they help preserve the jawbone and prevent bone deterioration. If the implants will be placed next to natural teeth, the natural teeth and surrounding gums must be in good health. If you don't have enough bone to place and support the dental implants, the supporting bone can be built up using bone augmentation or grafting before the actual implant procedure begins.
