Gum Grafting

What is a Gum Graft?

A gum graft is a surgical procedure where gum tissue from the roof of the mouth is transplanted onto another area of the gums to cover exposed tooth roots and repair gum recession.

Treating Gum Recession

Gum recession occurs when the gum tissue pulls back from the teeth, exposing the tooth root.

An exposed tooth root can cause tooth sensitivity, particularly when exposed to hot or cold temperatures.

Gum recession usually happens slowly, so many people do not realize it until they begin to feel discomfort.

When left untreated, gum recession may eventually lead to tooth loss because the exposed root is more susceptible to decay. 

Cosmetic Gum Grafting

In some cases, people choose to have a gum graft for cosmetic reasons, to reduce the perceived length of the teeth.
