"Without a doubt the absolute best experience possible. I was referred by a friend, thank God I was. From the very 1st phone call, Asly was tremendous, got my son in right away. My son for various reasons had rotted teeth. After spending a fortune on bridges, extractions, etc.. no other dentist leveled with me that he Had week teeth that would continue to get worse. He was in such severe pain for so long. Infections, absesses. Rot. I decided the most economical and permanent solution that I could afford was total extraction and dentures. I took him for quotes, typical xray,Nonpersonal attention, just another mouth.Took him to Seda $4000 less. And the caring office manager, Fernanda worked with me for over an hour, applying for financing. She finally set me up with a payment plan orI would have been unable to help my son.After explaining my situation they didn't even charge for his consultation. His dentist Dr. Hanna Butenko was beyond fantastic. All other quotes were pull all teeth at once. Stick In the permanent denture, with putty, then 6 months later come back to see how his jaw adjusted and re-putty, and all money immediately. Wow, Dr. Hanna, saw the horrible mess in my sons mouth. Set up 3 separate appts. One week apart, she saidIt would be way too painful to do all at onceAnd because of the extent of damage some Would be very difficult extractions. And may I say what a knowledgable caring lady. Well three weeks later, I'm sitting at lunch,Final teeth coming out as I write this. And he will be leaving today with his tempatoryDentures, he would not go out because of his teeth. Cant wait to see him really smile again.Three months from now he goes back, they see how his jaws have adjusted AND make him his permanent set! The reason this is so long and detailed is because, I know due to todays culture and poor choices, many young men have rotted hurting teeth, and think there's no answer. Seda also offers all the other options, butDont give up, our choice worked for us, and was affordable. Fernanda & Asly are like family, make my 29 year old son & I feel welcome and special. They know us by name and they should be proud of there courteous. Fun yet professionall manner. Lastly, I cannot Say enough about Dr. Butenko. She comes out of the back to personally see me each visitNot to mention, you will never see 3 more Pretty, really caring and a joy to see each timeYoung wmen.They treat you like family!!!And I havent even met Dr. Hill yet, who my friend said was exceptional. Ther is no other place I will ever go. My other son is next!!!They get 5 out of 5. Not a fair scale, really10 out of 5 stars."- G.K. / Google / Jun 20, 2019
Usually, gums grafts are performed to fix gum recession brought on by gum (periodontal) disease. Your gumline might be higher and your gums can pull back from your teeth. Exposed tooth roots can result in greater sensitivity. Less common reasons that may cause or lead to gum recession are aggressive tooth brushing or using a bad technique, frequent jaw clenching or teeth grinding (bruxism), and dental misalignment. Sometimes, oral piercings (tongue or lip) can rub against the gums and lead to recession. During your appointment, we will examine your gums and decide if you're a candidate for gum grafts.
What To Expect
There are various sorts of grafts that will be chosen according to your specific needs. Connective-tissue gum grafts are the most common kind used to fix exposed tooth roots. This starts by cutting an incision in the palate (roof of your mouth) to take a little flap of skin. The connective tissue is taken from within the flap and then grafted to your gums. A free gingival graft is comparable except that much more tissue is taken from the roof of your mouth to build up, especially thin gums. The next graft is a pedicle graft, which removes extra tissue from your mouth to where you need coverage. At your initial consultation, we can help you select the type of graft to suit your needs.
It is possible to go home following this grafting procedure; however, you will need to recover for a couple of days. You will also need to have a responsible adult take you home if you had intravenous or oral sedation. We will explain your aftercare instructions, such as dietary restrictions and any prescription medications you will need to take. You might feel some discomfort or pain for a short amount of time after the operation, which might be minimized with cold packs and nonprescription pain medication. To prevent damaging the grafts, you shouldn't floss or brush while your gums heal. A member of our team will suggest a mouthwash to help keep your mouth fresh. You might have to go back for another appointment so we can track your recovery and improvements.
If you have dental insurance, a member of our staff will get in touch with your insurer and affirm your coverage. For remaining costs after insurance and also for patients with no insurance, SEDA Dental of Pompano Beach takes several payments. During your appointment, a member of our team will discuss your estimated prices with you. We may also give you more information on low-interest financing to help make your treatment easier to afford.
