Connective Tissue Graft

Tissue grafting can address receding gums and help prevent bone loss that would jeopardize your teeth. Grafting can also improve the look of your smile.

This procedure involves taking gum tissue from another area of the mouth and placing it in the area of recession. The area is sutured and given time to heal. Your doctor will let you know how long this will take. When fully recovered, your gums will be returned to a healthy level that protects the underlying area from additional damage.
