Gum Grafting

Gum GraftingExposure of tooth roots is often the result of gum recession. Gum grafting surgery is designed to help repair defective soft tissue in order to prevent any additional recession or bone loss.

Gum grafting is used to help protect exposed tooth roots or regenerate damaged gum tissue as a result of progressive gingival recession. During this particular procedure, our periodontist carefully harvests gum tissue from the palate or various donor sources in order to cover the exposed tooth root. Gum grafting can be performed on a single tooth or several teeth in order to help restore the damaged gum tissue. This procedure is extremely successful in the reduction of tooth sensitivity.

What are the Benefits of Gum Grafting Surgery?

Gum grafting procedures can help reduce further gum recession and bone loss. Exposed tooth roots may also be covered in order to protect them from developing dental decay. This procedure can also help reduce tooth sensitivity and can help improve the aesthetics of your smile. Whether the gum grafting is performed for either functional or aesthetic purposes, patients will receive benefits of both. A gorgeous new smile and enhanced periodontal health will keep patients smiling vibrantly, eating and speaking with complete comfort and confidence.
