Gingival Grafting

Gingival Graft Treatment / “Gum Grafting”

Gingival grafting is used to functionally stabilize receding teeth.

Gingival (gum) grafting is a relatively common procedure that is recommended and performed to dramatically improve the health of teeth and will greatly improve the appearance of a smile. Gingival grafting is recommended when teeth have a recession, lack of protective gum tissue, sensitivity, and abrasion. Weakened gum tissue and recession often follows advanced cases of gingivitis and directly leads the deterioration of the bone surrounding the teeth.

Depending on the specific location and severity of the case, the graft will be surgically placed primarily to functionally repair the damaged or lost gum. Secondarily, in some cases, the focus will be cosmetic surgical coverage of the roots to prevent cavities, sensitivity and improve aesthetics. Many variations of gingival grafts exist and Dr. Augustine will discuss these options and objectives with you at your appointment. Gum grafting is a very successful, natural way to repair these gum problems. Remember that diagnosing these problems is crucial for tooth stability and health. The sooner the gingival grafting treatment is done the better the long-term result.
