Gum Grafting

Explainer Video

Gum grafting is a specialized dental procedure designed to combat gum recession and protect the roots of teeth from exposure, which can lead to sensitivity, decay, or even tooth loss. This surgical technique involves transplanting tissue, typically from the patient’s palate, to the affected gum area, thereby covering exposed roots and restoring the gum line to a healthier, more aesthetically pleasing state. It is an effective solution for those suffering from receding gums due to periodontal disease, aggressive brushing, or genetic predisposition, offering both functional and cosmetic benefits.

Frequently asked questions
and their answers

Gum grafting is a surgical procedure that involves taking tissue from one area of the mouth and attaching it over an exposed root surface to prevent further gum recession.

Gum grafting helps stimulate new tissue growth and restore gingival margin exposure caused by periodontal disease, abrasion, or thin insufficient gums. It protects tooth roots and prevents sensitivity.

The grafting procedure is done under local anesthesia so there is minimal pain during the surgery itself. Some mild discomfort and soreness is common during the healing process.

Initial healing takes about 2 weeks. Swelling, stiffness, and sensitivity gradually improve during this time. Normal brushing can typically resume after 4-6 weeks. Full maturation takes 2-3 months.

With proper techniques and care, gum grafts have a high success rate. Studies show up to 98% tissue re-growth and pocket depth reduction. Results can last for years.

Yes, by preventing gum recession and root exposure, gum grafting can improve aesthetic flaws associated with receding gums for a more uniform, youthful-looking smile.
