A soft tissue graft serves as a solution to receding gums. If left untreated, gum recession can lead to tooth loss.
What does the procedure involve?
In the procedure, gum tissue is taken from your palate or another donor source. This tissue is then placed over the exposed roots, which helps to even out the gum line.
By fixing gum recession, a soft tissue graft can:
- Fix the appearance of “long teeth”
- Prevent further gum recession/tooth loss
- Reduce sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
