What is a Gingival Graft?
3rd / May / 2018
Also known as a gum graft, a gingival graft is a treatment for exposed roots of teeth. Receded gums expose tooth roots, making this procedure necessary.
A dentist will perform this surgical procedure to graft gum tissue from one area to the exposed gum area.
The three main reasons for gingival graft treatment:
- To promote growth of healthy new gum tissue
- To reduce tooth sensitivity
- To prevent further damage and recession
“Patients who receive a gingival graft typically benefit from better gum health and an improved smile after the procedure.”
