Recovering Your Natural Gumline
Gum grafting involves taking a thin piece of healthy tissue from your mouth or from a donor source, and attaching it to the area where you have experienced gum recession. The graft is held in place via sutures. The graft heals over time and can blend with the existing gums for a seamless transition.
Our team begins this procedure by making you comfortable with one of our sedation options…Learn more about our sedation options…, which we choose based on the complexity of treatment and your dental anxiety.
