Soft Tissue Grafting

Root exposure resulting from gingival tissue recession may pose multiple problems for patients such as:

  • Undesirable Aesthetics                              
  • Root Sensitivity
  • Impaired Oral Hygiene
  • Increased Caries Susceptibility
  • Teeth May Become Loose

A gingival tissue graft will restore the proper gum tissue structure around the tooth.
