Gum grafting, also known as a soft tissue graft, is a specialized dental procedure aimed at addressing gingival recession and enhancing the aesthetic appeal of your gumline. This treatment is essential for patients experiencing gum recession, which can lead to severe dental issues such as tooth loss if not addressed promptly. Our dentist and team are committed to providing personalized care tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient.

Gum Grafting

Gum recession is a condition where the gum tissue pulls back from the tooth, exposing its root. It can result from various factors, including periodontal disease and overaggressive tooth brushing. Gum grafting serves not only to protect the teeth from further damage but also to improve the overall appearance of your smile.

The procedure involves transplanting gum tissue to areas where the gums have receded. Depending on individual cases and preferences, the grafting tissue may be sourced from another part of your mouth — typically the roof of the mouth or adjacent gum areas — or from a tissue bank. Dr. Raymond del Castillo will guide you through the decision-making process, helping you choose the best option for your situation. Your treatment will be carefully designed to meet your specific needs, and will work to improve both your oral health and the aesthetics of your smile.
