Excessive or Uneven Gums

Some medical treatments such as radiation therapy can actually permanently damage the salivary glands. And more than 400 kinds of medications list dry mouth as a side effect. The more common drugs include decongestants, diuretics, anti-hypertensives, anti-depressants, and antihistamines.
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.
