What is a Soft Tissue Graft?

A soft tissue graft, also called a gum graft, is a graft of gingival tissue. A gum graft may be needed to correct gingival recession or to improve the appearance of an uneven gum line.

During the gum grafting procedure, our dentist stitches grafting tissue onto the area of the gums that needs additional tissue. Based on your particular needs and desires, the tissue graft may be taken from another area of your mouth or from a tissue bank. When using your own tissues, the graft may be taken from the roof of the mouth or from the surrounding gums. Our dentist will help you determine which type of gum graft is best suited to your individual needs. In some cases, we may also use tissue-stimulating proteins to encourage your body’s natural growth abilities and promote faster healing.

Compassionate Dental Care You Can Trust

Our dentist may recommend a soft tissue graft if you have experienced gingival recession. The gum tissues may recede if your smile is affected by periodontal disease; overaggressive brushing may also cause gum recession. When not treated with a gingival graft, gum recession may eventually lead to tooth loss due to lack of support from the gum tissues. A gum graft can also improve the appearance of your smile.

To learn more about how a Tucson soft tissue graft treatment can improve the health and beauty of your smile, call our offices today at (520) 201-1717.
