New York, NY, Oct. 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lana Rozenberg, D.D.S. now offers cosmetic injectables, such as Restylane® in New York City, not only to achieve a more youthful appearance but also to achieve a more beautiful smile. As gum recession occurs, the gum will actually pull away from the tooth, creating the illusion of a blackened space between teeth. Although the initial cause of this recession may be treated, the gums will still appear receded. Dr. Rozenberg's ground breaking procedure, Gum Gap Restoration in NYC, utilizes Restylane® injections to add gum volume between teeth, filling in the blackened space, and achieving a shapelier, more glamorous smile.

Beginning stages of gum recession may not expose roots or cause tooth sensitivity but can be cosmetically unappealing. Gum Gap Restoration will build gum volume between teeth and return the natural-looking and healthy shape to your gum line. Although Restylane® is not a permanent solution to gum loss-- patients can anticipate needing maintenance appointments approximately 6 to 9 months between treatments-- it provides immediate results with minimal downtime; no scalpels or stitches are required. Patients will receive a simple injection of Restylane® in NYC during Gum Gap restoration, like any other cosmetic injectable treatment, except the treatment is applied to the gums instead of more traditional injectable locations, such as facial folds and frown lines.

Traditionally, the only option to treat gum recession was gum grafting. This procedure would actually transfer connective gum tissue from the roof of the mouth to the treatment location at the gum line. Material from a tissue bank could potentially be used instead of tissue from your palate. In either instance, this procedure requires scalpels, stitches, and some recovery time. Downtime following gum grafting varies depending on whether material from a tissue bank or the patient's own tissue is used and how much grafting is performed. Patients are often constricted to a soft food diet for two weeks, consisting of Jell-O, eggs, pasta, yogurt, and cottage cheese. Gum grafting is still necessary if gum recession exposes the tooth's root, causing intense tooth sensitivity. If gum recession is mostly a cosmetic concern Gum Gap Restoration using Restylane® injections may be considered. 

Restylane® is a cosmetic dermal filler commonly used to smooth facial folds thanks to its ability to provide lost volume under the skin's surface. The materials used in the Restylane® injection are free from animal proteins, allowing for easy use without the risk of developing an allergic reaction. Other hyaluronic acid-based cosmetic injectables may require an allergy test, but because Restylane® is composed of materials found naturally in the human body, an allergy test is unnecessary. Patients who notice the beginning signs of gum recession between their teeth, or are known to have dental bone loss, may want to consider Gum Gap Restoration.

Where bone loss occurs, gum recession will follow. Other causes of gum recession may include severe infections involving the tooth's roots and nerves, such as an abscessed tooth, periodontitis, and cavitation after tooth extraction. Unassociated tooth conditions, such as benign or malignant jaw tumors, pageants disease, or particular medications, can produce dental bone loss and subsequent gum recession. Meet with Dr. Lana Rozenberg to discover if Gum Gap Restoration and Restylane® in NY is a viable option for you.
