Gum (soft tissue) Grafting

Many patients have one or more areas of significant gum recession. The cause of these recessions may be due to “thin” gums and over-zealous tooth brushing. These areas are often associated with very thin remaining gum tissue that may be more at risk for further recession.  A small amount of tissue is taken from the palate and sutured to the receded area. The palate regenerates completely and sutures are not always needed
