Gum Tissue Grafts

Gum Tissue GraftsAlthough gum tissue grafts may appear to be an extremely complex procedure, however it is a relatively common treatment option for improving the aesthetics of a patient’s smile. This procedure can also be used to address many oral health conditions such as extreme tooth sensitivity and tooth enamel erosion.

Gum grafts are used to help restore a patient’s receding gum line. Advanced cases of periodontal disease are often associated with exposure of tooth roots and the deterioration of bone tissue. When left untreated, gum disease can cause gum tissue to recede deep below the gum line. Gum tissue grafts will be essential in treating severe gum disease.

The progression of gum recession will be halted with the help of gum tissue grafts. Bone deterioration and tooth loss will also be prevented as well. In some cases, exposed tooth roots will be protected from developing root caries. The reduction of tooth sensitivity will also occur, since exposed surfaces of teeth will be sealed under a blanket of gum tissue. Gum tissue grafts can be performed on patients to improve both the function and aesthetics of a smile. Patients will enjoy a vibrant new smile and exceptional periodontal health. Eating, speaking and smiling will be restored for patients who undergo gum graft surgeries.
