Gingival / Gum Grafting

Gum grafting is a simple procedure to protect your teeth and repair the damage caused by gum recession. It helps in restoring your gum to its healthy and natural state. It can prevent further gum recession and bone loss, helps in reducing tooth sensitivity, and improves the appearance of your smile.

Gum recession is caused in the advanced stages of gum disease. In gingivitis and periodontitis disease, more bacteria and plaque builds up in your mouth which causes your gums to stretch. This results in large pockets on the gum line which cause your gums to recede and expose the tooth and root surfaces. Gum grafting is performed to graft the receded gums and cover the exposed root and tooth surfaces.

During the gum grafting procedure, your dentist will take soft gum tissue from your palate and will cover the exposed root surface. This allows growth of new tissue which helps your gum to restore to its original state around the teeth. The surgery requires less time and causes little discomfort. Follow your dentist’s instructions to recover fast and feel comfortable after the surgery.
