Excessive or Uneven Gums
Many people inherit the problem of excessive or uneven gums.
|An estimated sixty-five percent of Americans have bad breath. Over 40 million Americans have "chronic halitosis", which is persistent bad breath. Ninety percent of all halitosis is of oral, not systemic, origin.|
A cosmetic surgical procedure called a gum lift can be used to correct this problem.
Some abnormalities, as well as advanced gum disease that cannot be treated periodontically or non-surgically, may require application of soft tissue grafts. Such procedures can be used to cover an exposed root or correct uneven gum lines.
