Gingival Graft

In addition to the development of pockets and bone loss, periodontal disease can cause the gums to recede, thereby exposing the roots of the teeth. When the root of a tooth loses its overlying soft tissue, it becomes more vulnerable to decay, sensitivity and additional bone loss. Gum recession also takes a toll on smile aesthetics.

By performing a gum graft procedure, which is also known as a “gingival graft or soft tissue graft,” the dentist replaces the soft tissue over the exposed area of the tooth to address the problems created by receding gums. Gum tissue for grafting procedures can be harvested from a nearby site in the mouth or obtained from another donor source. A gum graft may be performed on a single tooth or multiple ones. And, based upon the needs of the case, the dentist will determine which type of gum graft to employ.

“Very caring and knowledgeable doctors and staff. They have a beautiful office and state of the art equipment. Unlike other general dental practices, they can do most procedures in house, so you don’t have to be sent to another office. Really nice people and they make you feel at home, and well taken care of! :)”

“I’ve been coming here for several years and the service has been consistently excellent. Had an Invisalign treatment with Dr. Velazquez and am extremely satisfied with the final result! All staff members are friendly and accommodating. The hygienist Dianna was very kind and is thorough in explaining all treatment procedures and options. I would highly recommend this office to others!”
