Soft Tissue Grafting

Soft Tissue Grafting

Longer teeth or exposed tooth roots can look unsightly. They can also increase your sensitivity to heat, cold or sweets.

The exposed roots are more susceptible to decay as well. In some cases, gum tissue can be placed in these areas to help protect the bony support and stabilize the tooth.

Procedure: The periodontist administers a local anesthetic, gently prepares the area and then places a gum tissue graft. There are 3 basic types of tissue grafts available today:

  1. Free Gingival Graft
  2. Connective Tissue Graft 
  3. AlloDerm

Both numbers 1 and 2 use a small piece of tissue taken from your palate and placed to cover the defect.  AlloDerm uses donor tissue. Therefore no tissue from your palate is used, resulting in less discomfort.

Exposed tooth roots are the result of gum recession. Your gums may have receeded for a variety of reasons, including aggressive tooth brushing or periodontal disease.
