GINGIVAL GRAFT or GUM GRAFT
Opération de greffes de gencives
Gingival recession or gum loss around the tooth may have several causes. Traumatic brushing, periodontal disease, bruxism and poorly positioned tissue/muscle attachment are just some of the reasons. Teeth that naturally present with a very thin gum are more at risk for gingival recession.
It is important to identify the causes of the gingival recession. If indicated, a gingival graft may be necessary to arrest recession. Gingival graft can recreate or reposition the lost of band of protective tissue around the tooth. In many cases, a graft may partially or completely cover the exposed root.
There are three common gingival graft procedure: palatal, free-gingival and pedicle graft. Our periodontists, Dr. Mélanie Campese and Dr. Jeremy Werbitt are specialized to treat any gingival problem after proceeding a periodontal consultation and examination.
