Restoring Gum Tissue

When gum recession occurs, it can lead to a variety of concerns, including tooth sensitivity, an unsightly appearance, and an increased risk of further gum and bone damage. Two types of gum grafting procedures – free gingival graft and connective tissue graft – can address specific issues related to gum recession. Our experienced periodontist, Dr. Samuel, will carefully assess
your condition and recommend the most suitable treatment option for your unique needs.


Free Gingival Graft: This procedure is ideal for cases where the gums have become thin and there is no exposure of the tooth root. By utilizing a small graft of tissue, we can thicken the gums, making them more resistant to infection and preventing further gum recession. The free gingival graft promotes the restoration of a healthier gumline and enhances overall oral health.

Connective Tissue Graft: When tooth root surfaces are exposed due to gum recession, the connective tissue graft is an effective treatment option. During this procedure, a small piece of tissue is carefully harvested from the roof of your mouth and placed over the exposed area. This
graft helps to cover the exposed tissue and reestablish proper gum contours, ensuring a more aesthetic and functional outcome. The success of the connective tissue graft depends on various factors, including the extent of bone loss in the affected area.

Before initiating any treatment, Dr. Samuel will thoroughly evaluate your specific needs and discuss the potential benefits and expected outcomes. We believe in providing personalized care and ensuring that you are fully informed about your treatment options. Our dedicated team will guide you through the process, addressing any questions or concerns you may have.

During the gum grafting procedure, we prioritize your comfort and utilize advanced techniques to minimize any discomfort. We will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to promote proper healing and optimal results. Following your gum grafting treatment, regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your progress and ensure that your gums are healing as expected.
