Gum Grafting (Connective Tissue Graft)

Transforming The Experience of Dentistry Since 2000

If you’re tired of hiding your receding gums when you smile, gum grafting in Solana Beach using connective tissue may be the solution you’ve been looking for. Besides boosting your confidence, this minimally invasive procedure can restore your oral health.

What Is Gum Grafting in Solana Beach?

Gum grafting is a dental procedure that restores gum tissue and prevents further damage to teeth and surrounding structures. It involves taking healthy tissue from an area of the mouth and grafting it into receding gum areas.

Although periodontists may use different methods when performing this procedure, connective tissue grafting is the most common technique. They take a small flap of tissue from under the palate’s surface and graft it into the area in need.

What Are the Benefits of Gum Grafting?

  • It Prevents Further Gum Recession – Gum recession occurs when the gum tissue surrounding and protecting the teeth begins to pull away from the teeth. As the gums recede, they make teeth more susceptible to damage and decay as the receding gums expose more of each tooth and its root. Gum grafting prevents further recession by covering the exposed root surface with grafted tissue and protecting teeth against damage.
  • It Reduces Tooth Sensitivity – Exposed tooth roots are usually sensitive to hot, cold, and sweet foods and beverages. Since gum grafting covers the roots and stimulates new gum tissue growth, it protects the roots from external stimuli and reduces tooth sensitivity.
  • It Improves Your Smile’s Appearancet – Gum recession often causes an uneven or gummy smile. For this reason, most people feel self-conscious about their receding gums. Gum grafting not only improves the appearance of your gums but also enhances your smile’s overall aesthetics.
  • It Boosts Your Overall Oral Health – A bum grafting procedure can improve your oral health and quality of life by protecting your teeth and gums, improving your mouth’s comfort, and enhancing your smile’s appearance.
