Periodontal diseases and other gum diseases can lead to loss of gum. Gum grafting is a surgical procedure where, the dentist will carefully place a small amount of new tissue in an area where no gum tissue exists.

This procedure usually helps prevent further gum recession and also covers exposed root surfaces. At our clinic, we offer gum tissue grafts. Get in touch with us now for more information or to book an appointment with our dentists, we are here to help you with all your dental needs.

What Is Gum Tissue Graft?

Gum tissue acts as a barrier that resists the adverse effects of eating, chewing and biting. Overtime our gums may recede. When the tooth’s roots lose healthy gum tissue, they become sensitive and causes extreme pain. Receded gums also make it easier for bacteria to enter the roots and eventually lead to loss of teeth. 

At our clinic, our team will diagnose your condition, if you are detected with gum diseases, we can help. We offer gum tissue graft solutions. We will create a suitable plan to help restore the tissue. Our gum graft will help protect your teeth from the effects of gum recession.
