Treatments for receding gum
Gum graft procedures may be used to restore and rejuvenate receded or aged gum (gum recession), cover unsightly or sensitive exposed tooth-root surfaces, thicken weak and delicate gum, and augment thin or missing tissue around dental implants.
Gum Graft Treatment: What Is It?
A gum graft treatment (a type of periodontal plastic surgery or microsurgery) is also called gingival graft, gingival grafting or gum regeneration. It is used to regenerate or modify the soft tissues in the periodontal area that is thin, receding, or expected to recede.
When we assess your situation, we will discuss whether a gum graft or a gum regeneration is suitable for you. Before any gum grafting is planned, our dental surgeons will make sure that your gums aren’t affected by gum disease and that home hygiene is on track. The graft recipient needs to be healthy and free from inflammation.
After treatment, you need to take care of the grafted area and avoid pressure on it until it’s ready to have the sutures (stitches) removed.
