What is Soft Tissue Grafting?

Soft tissue grafting, also known as gum grafting, is a surgical procedure that involves taking tissue from one area of the mouth and grafting it onto another area, typically to cover exposed tooth roots or augment the gumline. This procedure is commonly used to treat gum recession and improve the appearance of the smile.

Why Choose Soft Tissue Grafting for gum health

Why Choose Soft Tissue Grafting?

  • Treatment of Gum Recession : Soft tissue grafting can effectively cover exposed tooth roots, reducing sensitivity and protecting the teeth from further damage.

  • Enhanced Smile Aesthetics : Gum grafting can improve the appearance of your smile by creating a more even gumline and restoring a youthful, healthy-looking appearance.

  • Improved Gum Health : Soft tissue grafting can help reduce the risk of gum disease by thickening the gum tissue and making it more resistant to infection.

The Process of Soft Tissue Grafting

The Soft Tissue Grafting Process

  • Consultation : During your initial visit, your dentist in Palm Desert will evaluate your oral health and discuss your goals for treatment.

  • Procedure : Soft tissue grafting is typically performed under local anesthesia. Your periodontist will take tissue from the roof of your mouth or a donor source and graft it onto the areas of recession.

  • Recovery : After the procedure, you may experience some swelling and discomfort, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication and proper oral hygiene. Your periodontist will provide specific instructions for post-operative care.
