Soft Tissue Grafting

Patients are referred to us daily by their general dentists and orthodontic specialists to evaluate their need for soft tissue grafting as a result of gum recession.  Gum recession can be a serious condition if left untreated as it can lead to future problems such a periodontal infection, decay or even tooth loss in some severe cases.  While each case presents differently there are three very predictable types of tissue grafting that our doctors perform to help prevent the progression of gum recession. Each method brings its own benefit to the affected area of the mouth.  At your initial evaluation our doctors will review with you which type of graft is best for your specific case to get you a long lasting resolution for your recession.  Our team will also discuss with you what you can expect after treatment has taken place so you can better prepare for your upcoming treatment.
