Perhaps you don’t have enough gum tissue, a condition that can prohibit dental implant treatment. Gum grafting requires a series of periodontal procedures whereby oral tissue is grafted and used to replace and cover exposed root surfaces.
Gum grafting is a common periodontal procedure performed at Lorton Town Dental to treat gum recession. After gum grafting, the soft tissue surrounding your teeth can begin to naturally regenerate, restoring a healthier smile. Benefits include reduced sensitivity, an improved smile appearance and overall improvement of gum health.
This process makes your teeth and smile more appealing while building up healthy gum tissue and decreasing the need for future periodontal work. Healthy tissue is taken from the roof of your mouth and placed directly on the site in question. Gum grafting can be performed for a single tooth or for multiple teeth.
