FAQs

What is the Ravon Gum Rejuvenation Method?

The Ravon Gum Rejuvenation Method is a treatment for receding gums. It is an alternative to more invasive gum flap surgery or gum graft surgery for some candidates.

How does the Ravon Gum Rejuvenation Method work?

The procedure uses a small hole in the gums near the area to be treated to loosen and reposition gums in the treatment area. The repositioned gums are bound in place using a collagen material.

What are the advantages of the Ravon Gum Rejuvenation Method?

This procedure offers many advantages over other techniques that are designed as periodontitis treatment, including:

  • Shorter surgery time (less than 20 minutes per tooth)
  • Can be completed in a single visit
  • No incisions
  • No stitches
  • No need for donor site
  • Shorter recovery time (<1 day vs. 2+ weeks for gum grafting)
  • Less discomfort (no need for prescription painkillers)
  • No need for a soft diet

These advantages are making it a very popular option among appropriate candidates.

What are the limitations of the Ravon Gum Rejuvenation Method?

The Ravon Gum Rejuvenation Method is not a periodontitis treatment, and it can only be used on patients with healthy gum tissue. Patients must also have adequate gum tissue in the treatment area.

What is the difference between Ravon Gum Rejuvenation and periodontitis treatment?

In the Ravon Gum Rejuvenation Method, the goal is to restore receding gums to a healthier and more attractive position. This protects your teeth and bones, but it is not intended to correct gum disease.

In periodontitis treatment, the goal is to treat advanced gum disease that has begun to damage your teeth and bones as well as gums. To do this it is often necessary to cut the gums to expose infected areas.

Who is an ideal candidate for the Ravon Gum Rejuvenation Method?

The ideal candidate for the Ravon Gum Rejuvenation Method:

  • Is free of periodontal disease
  • Has good oral and general health
  • Has adequate gum tissue in the treatment area
  • Does not use tobacco products

Often, these can be overcome. Patients can alter their oral hygiene habits or undergo periodontitis treatment before gum rejuvenation. They can quit using tobacco products for several weeks before and after the procedure.

How much does Ravon Gum Rejuvenation cost?

The cost of Ravon Gum Rejuvenation depends on the number of teeth being treated, the condition of your gums, and whether additional treatments are necessary to achieve optimal results. In many cases, it may be less expensive than traditional gum grafting surgery because it requires less time, fewer office visits, and less prescription medication.
