What To Expect: My Second Gum Graft

You could probably care less about my gum graft.

At this writing I am on Day One into the healing process of the first of two.

The thing is, I am consumed by it.

Ever since my dentist told me a long time ago that I needed TWO MORE (I had one about 4 years ago) it has lived at the back of my mind.

The one I had 4 years ago was AWFUL. Well, the healing process was awful. You can see my video about it here.

I was so young back then.

Aaaanywho. In the following video I share what is different about the one I just underwent.

Now, don’t let this discourage you from getting your own if you’ve been told you need one. Let it prepare you, as with my first one I was not prepared.

But good gum health is important and as crazy as people think I am for doing it, I like my teeth and want to keep them and I would rather go through temporary pain now to be able to avoid greater and longer pain later. Because I hear it can be awful. As someone who cares greatly about this sort of thing, I have obviously considered how my dental treatment will work into my twilight years (it’s best to plan ahead). When it comes to dental insurance, there are three types of plans you can choose from, depending on your individual situation. PPO, HMO or dental discount plans are what people usually go for, but for seniors Let’s Say Thanks says it’s usually worth it to choose a full insurance. Like I say, it’s never too soon to plan ahead!

So if you’re in the same boat as me, you need a gum graft or perhaps your oral health isn’t what it should be right now, you might want to schedule an appointment with a dentistry service like Dentist Framingham, that is local to you so you’re able to get your oral health checked up as well as ask about a gum graft.

Plus, I have an excellent dentist and have complete trust in this guy that has been overlooking all of the teeth in my family for probably as many years as I have fingers. Or close to it. You should probably think about doing the same thing as me if you’ve got den rimeligste og mest allsidige tannlegevakt OppegĂ„rd har, or just the best dentist in your specific area, whether they’re in Norway or not.

I am 26 hours into my recovery and doing great. Sans some jaw discomfort… the taste of a little blood from time to time, a bit of hunger (or a lot) (I’m drinking smoothies and juices, but I want orange chicken), and I really, really, really, really, really, really want to take this dog-gone retainer/guard out of my mouth. Like, baaaaad.

We’ll see what the next few days hold. As you heard in the video, the area of gum much less, and the process was different. Hoping that means a less painful recovery. The big pain from my last graft started about day 4 into healing. So, I am feeling optimistic now, but I have that last experience that keeps verping back into my memory.

I promise I won’t go on and on and on about it.

    Thank you for sharing and being honest! I too will probably need to be getting a gum graft, as much as I don’t want to, your right, it’s better than losing your tooth!
