Gum Grafting

When recession of the gingiva occurs, the body loses a natural defense against both bacterial penetration and trauma. Gum recession is also a type of bone loss, which eventually leads to tooth loss. When gum recession is a problem gum reconstruction or regeneration using grafting techniques is an option. Questions about Gum Grafting in Palm Beach, Forida? Call our office for a consultation.

When there is only minor recession, some healthy gingiva often remains and protects the tooth, so that no treatment other than modifying home care practices is necessary. However, when recession reaches the mucosa (movable cheek tissue), the first line of defense against bacterial penetration is lost.

In addition, gum recession often results in root sensitivity to hot and cold foods as well as an unsightly appearance to the gum and tooth. Also, gum recession, when significant, can predispose to worsening recession and expose the root surface, which is softer than enamel, leading to root caries and root gouging.

A gingival graft is designed to solve these problems. A thin piece of tissue is taken from the roof of the mouth, or gently moved over from adjacent areas, to provide a stable band of attached gingiva around the tooth. The gingival graft may be placed in such a way as to cover the exposed portion of the root. The site in which the tissue graft is taken usually feels like trauma from a pizza burn for a few days.

The gingival graft procedure is highly predictable and results in a stable healthy band of attached tissue around the tooth.
