Gum graft is a dental procedure that addresses proportion issues of the gums due to gum recession. Gum recession is when the gum tissue pulls or wears away from the tooth, which exposes more of the tooth surface or even its root. When this happens, it can greatly damage the supporting bone, making the tooth more sensitive to cold or hot food or beverages. Gum graft corrects the gums and is important to protect the teeth from the damaging effects of gum recession. Our licensed dentists will remove healthy gum tissue from the roof of your mouth to build the gum back to where it has receded. There are different types of gum graft surgery undertaken depending on the severity of the damage and based on the patient’s needs.
