Gum Grafting Near You

A gum graft is an oral surgery that is utilized to correct the effects of gum recession. The surgery is relatively simple and quick, which involves the removal and use of healthy gum tissue from the roof of the patient’s mouth and used to build up the receded area of the gum. There are many signs and symptoms of gum disease, but the most visible sign of periodontal disease is gum recession. When gums recede, a large portion of your tooth becomes exposed or the crown and root.

If a patient experiences periodontal disease, gum recession can affect multiple teeth. It is important to treat gum recession as your gums are the initial barrier against bacteria in the mouth. Patients with gum recession can have aesthetic concerns due to the exposed appearance of the tooth or teeth. The bacteria that develop in your mouth can be attributed to the following:

  • Tooth loss
  • Gum deterioration
  • Systemic issues
  • Bone deterioration
