Gum graft

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.
