Gum Grafting

Aug 2 • 1 minute read

Gum health plays a vital role in maintaining oral health. However, factors such as gum recession, periodontal disease, and aggressive toothbrushing can lead to the loss of gum tissue.  When this occurs, the roots of teeth are exposed and can result in discomfort.  Gum grafting is a surgical procedure that involves transplanting gum tissue from a donor site or donor to a site where gum tissue loss has occurred.  This procedure aims to restore the gumline, cover exposed roots and prevent further recession.  Most oftentimes a gum specialist (periodontist) will perform the procedure.
