Excessive or Uneven Gums

In the 19th century, charcoal became very popular for teeth cleaning purposes. Most toothpastes at this time were in the form of a powder. The purpose of the tooth powder was not only to clean the teeth, but to give fresh breath.
Many people inherit the problem of excessive or uneven gums.

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.
