Amendments to the gums are done with patients who are suffering from periodontal disease (periodontitis). They are mere esthetic solutions which will not affect the progression of the disease in any major way. Periodontitis must however be fully under control at the time of the procedure – it is not possible to carry out the work when the gums are suffering from inflammation or where there is tartar existent. One of the possibilities is the surgical removal of soft tissue from the roof of the mouth in the shape of a half-moon, which is then sewed on to cover uncovered roots. Yet another option is the movement of the dental lobe when the issue is visible on the entire bottom jaw – surgical covering of the uncovered roots. The procedure is carried out under local anesthetics.
