Gum Grafting Treatment

Who Else Wants Healthy Gums?

If you see a few of your teeth have started to look longer or you frequently experience sensitivity to hot and cold, your gums could be receding, and a portion of your tooth’s root is exposed. Gum recession occurs gradually, and it may sneak up on you. Gum grafting treatment for receding gums can help prevent any further loss of gum tissue.

Types Of Gum Grafts

Three types of gum graft surgeries

Tissue Graft

 

Connective-tissue grafts are the most common grafting procedure, used to treat one or more areas of recession. The tissue is taken from a flap of tissue from the roof of your mouth and then stitched over the area of exposed root.

Gingival Graft

 

Free gingival grafts are similar to connective tissue grafts, although the tissue is taken from the palate directly.

Pedicle Graft

 

Pedicle grafts use the tissue adjacent to the tooth in need of repair.

Benefits of Gum Grafts

 

In addition to stopping the process of gum recession and bone loss, gum grafts can reduce tooth sensitivity (especially to hot and cold foods) and protect the roots of your teeth from root decay. Gum grafts also result in a more even gumline, giving you the benefit of smiling and speaking without self-consciousness over the appearance of your teeth.
