Our team of periodontal experts specializes in restoring lost gingival tissue and improving the aesthetics of your smile.

With gum grafts, we can correct receding gums, cover exposed roots, and promote optimal oral health.



A gum graft is a procedure in which tissue is taken from another part of the mouth, such as the roof of the mouth, and placed in areas where the gums have receded. The goal is to increase the amount of gingival tissue, cover exposed roots, and improve the aesthetic appearance of the smile.

A gum graft is recommended when the gums have receded, exposing the tooth roots. This can occur due to periodontal disease, aggressive tooth brushing, genetics or anatomical factors. Gum grafting is necessary to prevent further gingival recession, protect tooth roots, and improve aesthetic appearance.

During the gum grafting procedure, a tissue sample is taken from the patient's or a donor's mouth and carefully placed over the affected areas. The tissue is fixed in place with sutures and allowed to integrate with the existing gums over time, promoting their growth and proper coverage.

We use local anesthesia during the gum graft to ensure your comfort during the procedure. After treatment, you may experience some tenderness or discomfort, but you will be provided with instructions to manage any discomfort and prescribed medication if necessary.

Recovery time after a gum graft can vary depending on the extent of the procedure and individual healing ability. It usually takes several weeks for the grafted tissue to fully integrate and heal. During this period, you will be given post-operative care guidelines to ensure a successful recovery.
