Gum Grafting

Gum recession can cause problems for your oral health. Gum recession allows bacteria to further damage your mouth. Gum grafting allows your gums to continue protecting your teeth. Gum grafting is necessary if your mucosa is affected. It’s your first line of protection against bacterial penetration. Our gum grafting stops the damage of gum recession. This includes root sensitivity to hot and cold foods. Gum recession can expose the root surface of your mouth. This leads to root caries and root gouging. Stop this terrible process with gum grafting.

Gum Grafting Process

Gum grafting corrects the unattractive look of gum recession. Dr. Yeh does this by taking a thin piece of gum tissue from the roof of your mouth. This is done to cover any exposed parts of your tooth roots. Gum grafting gives you a stable band of attached gingival around your teeth. Our gum grafting procedures are done carefully. Sedation dentistry and nitrous oxide are used for this procedure.

  • Scaling and root planing to remove tartar and bacteria
  • Oral and topical antibiotics to fight bacterial growth
  • Stops gum recession
  • Restores the look of your teeth and gums
