If you’ve been told by your dentist that gum grafting may be recommended for you then perhaps you’ve done at least some initial online research on the procedure. Our in-office periodontist Dr. Cherie Brown performs gum tissue grafting routinely, and in fact mentions that it’s one of her favorite procedures to do.
Soft tissue grafting of gums is a procedure that is often recommended to achieve benefits such as:
- Increasing Comfort: Tooth root exposure can result in pain and discomfort. Sensitivity to hot, cold, and warm foods can be decreased with the restoration of good health to the gum areas.
- Improves Aesthetic Appearance: When gum recession occurs due to periodontal disease it can cause a person’s smile to appear “toothy”. Soft tissue grafting is an effective cosmetic procedure to precisely re-augment gum tissue resulting in a more symmetrical appearing smile.
- Improve & Restore Gum Health: Periodontal disease is a condition that can erode soft gum tissue over time, sometimes rapidly. The combination of deep cleaning procedures and gum grafting can help stop tissue and bone loss which if left untreated can lead to further dental problems.
