Gum grafting

What is gum grafting?

Do you have exposed tooth roots due to gum recession? If so gum grafting could be a solution for you. This surgery will repair the defect and help avoid further gum recession and bone loss. Gum graft can be used to develop gum tissue if it has been absent (largely due to excessive gingival recession) and to cover roots. Usually, the periodontist takes gum tissue from your palate or another source to cover the exposed root.
