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.”
