What is a Gum Graft?

A gum or gingival graft is a dental procedure to address gum recession. Gum recession occurs when the gum tissue surrounding the teeth wears away, exposing the tooth roots. This can lead to sensitivity, decay, and compromised aesthetics. During a gum graft, a small piece of tissue is taken from one area of the mouth, often the palate, and transplanted to the affected site. The grafted tissue helps to cover the exposed roots, restore gum volume, and enhance the appearance of the gums. Dental specialists, such as periodontists or oral surgeons, perform gum grafts, specializing in gum tissue restoration.

Why Choose a Gum Graft?

Opting for a gum graft procedure presents a range of compelling advantages. Gum grafts effectively address gum recession by restoring gum tissue and concealing exposed tooth roots. This promotes improved gum health and prevents further recession. Additionally, gum grafts can significantly enhance the aesthetics of your smile by creating a more balanced and natural gum line. These grafts also alleviate tooth sensitivity by covering sensitive areas, allowing you to enjoy hot or cold foods without discomfort. Gum grafts protect vulnerable tooth roots, reducing the risk of decay, damage, and potential tooth loss. With long-lasting results and a boost in self-confidence, gum grafts can positively transform your smile and overall oral well-being.

Post Treatment Care

After a gum graft, it's common to experience pain, bleeding, swelling, and seeping. Avoid touching the site, forcefully rinsing, or using a straw to promote healing. Bite on a gauze pad for 30 minutes to reduce bleeding. Use prescribed medications and mouth rinses as directed. After 24 hours, rinse with warm salt water, brush gently, and apply a cold compress to reduce swelling. Stay hydrated, avoid spicy foods, and don't smoke or drink alcohol. Limit physical activity for a few days. If there's a surgical bandage, leave it for 24 hours and gently clean the wound with a cotton swab.
