Gum Grafting

 

Gum grafting may be required in order to restore any loss of gum. Gum tissue does not only function for aesthetics but also provides a tight seal around each tooth. This seal prevents plaque bacteria to access the gum and bone. Gum grafting is mainly a procedure which patients often require if there is a lack of healthy and strong gum tissue around the base of the teeth or if there is a considerable degree of gum recession.
