Understanding Soft Tissue Grafting

Soft tissue grafting involves transplanting or repositioning healthy gum tissue from one area of the mouth to another to cover exposed tooth roots, correct gum recession, and enhance the appearance of the smile. This procedure is commonly recommended for patients with receding gums due to periodontal disease, aggressive brushing habits, or other factors.

The Soft Tissue Grafting Process

  1. Comprehensive Evaluation: During your initial consultation, our dental team will conduct a thorough examination of your gums and teeth to assess the extent of gum recession and determine if soft tissue grafting is the appropriate treatment option for you.
  2. Treatment Planning: Based on our findings, we will develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals. We will discuss the procedure in detail, address any questions or concerns you may have, and ensure you are fully informed and comfortable before proceeding.
  3. Graft Harvesting: Depending on the type of soft tissue grafting procedure recommended, the graft tissue may be harvested from your palate (roof of the mouth), adjacent gum tissue, or a donor source. The harvested tissue is then prepared and shaped to fit the area of gum recession.
  4. Graft Placement: The prepared graft tissue is carefully placed and secured over the affected area of gum recession, covering the exposed tooth roots and creating a stable, healthy gumline. The graft is sutured into place, and a protective dressing may be applied to aid in healing.
  5. Healing and Integration: Over time, the grafted tissue will integrate with your existing gum tissue, stimulating new blood vessel formation and promoting healing and attachment to the underlying bone. As the graft heals, it will blend seamlessly with your natural gumline, improving both function and aesthetics.
  6. Follow-Up Care: Regular follow-up appointments will be scheduled to monitor your healing progress and evaluate the success of the soft tissue grafting procedure. Additional supportive care may be provided as needed to ensure optimal outcomes and maintain your oral health.
