Face and Jaw Surgery
Scar tissue on gums
CAN SCAR TISSUE BE REMOVED FROM UPPER GUM AREA. PAIN AND BURNING EVERY DAY FOR MONTHS. PLEASE HELP
The information you have provided is insufficient to answer your question. I need to know:
- Why you have a scar?
- What caused it?
- How long has this been going on?
- How old are you?
- The status of your teeth, etc.
In general, scar tissue can be excised based upon the location and extent of scar. In some regions it may need to be reconstructed and/or grafted further.
