What is Gum Grafting?

Gum grafting is a surgical procedure used to correct the effects of gum recession. It involves transplanting tissue to cover exposed tooth roots, reduce further recession, and protect vulnerable teeth from decay and other damage. This procedure can also improve the appearance of your smile by providing a more even gum line.

Benefits of Gum Grafting

  • Enhanced Gum Health: Helps protect exposed tooth roots from decay and prevents further gum recession.
  • Improved Comfort: Reduces tooth sensitivity associated with exposed roots.
  • Aesthetic Benefits: Offers a more uniform look to your gums and smile.

The Gum Grafting Procedure Explained

We begin with a detailed assessment to determine the extent of gum recession and the best type of graft for your specific needs.

Procedure Steps:

  1. Tissue Harvesting: Tissue is typically taken from the roof of your mouth or from a donor source.
  2. Graft Placement: The harvested tissue is then attached to the areas where the gum has receded.
  3. Healing Process: Post-operative care is crucial. We provide comprehensive instructions and support to ensure a smooth recovery.
