Tissue Grafting

Tissue Grafting

If your tooth shows recession (shrinkage of the gum) or the overlying gum is very thin a soft tissue graft may be a possible solution. Grafting can aim to prevent further recession, alleviate sensitivity and improve the appearance of your smile. 

What is it?

Tissue grafting is a delicate procedure where a small piece of gum tissue is taken from the palate or another donor site and transplanted to cover the exposed root.
