    Benefits Of Gum Grafting

    Gum recession can prove detrimental to your oral health if left untreated. That’s why our Pearland, TX, periodontists offer gum grafting, which aims to provide the following benefits:

    • Reduces tooth sensitivity: Gum recession exposes the roots of your teeth, making them more sensitive to hot and cold. Gum grafts can cover your tooth roots and prevent sensitivity.
    • Improves smile aesthetics: Receding gum line can also affect the appearance of your beautiful smile, but we can restore it with this procedure.
    • Lowers the risk of caries: This procedure covers the exposed tooth roots and gives your teeth a protective layer against oral bacteria.
    • Enhances oral health: Getting timely gum grafts can help preserve your natural soft tissues and improve oral health.

    Questions About Soft Tissue Grafting?

    How Is Gum Grafting Performed In Pearland, TX?

    During your initial consultation, we will explain the details of the procedure so you are ready before your scheduled appointment. To start the process of gum grafts, our Pearland, TX team will first inject local anesthesia to numb your gums.

    We take the graft from your own healthy tissues, usually from the roof of your mouth, and place it over the area of gum recession. We will anesthetize the donor site as well to minimize discomfort.

    After placing the gum graft, we will stitch it with your gums and recreate the contour of your natural gum line. The graft merges with your existing gum tissues and covers the tooth roots. It may take 2 to 4 weeks for your gums to recover. After the healing period, you will see a noticeable change in your smile aesthetics!

    Am I A Good Candidate For Gum Grafts?

    Gum recession is a common problem that affects many people around the world. Its risk increases as you get older because the gum tissues gradually lose their strength over time. Mild gum recession may not be noticeable, but moderate to severe gum recession can affect your cosmetic appearance and overall oral health.

    If you exhibit a moderate to severe form of gum recession, we suggest gum grafting in Pearland, TX. Before the surgery, our dentists will carry out a periodontal exam to evaluate the health of your gums and jawbone. We will also obtain your medical history to check if you have any systemic condition (e.g., uncontrolled diabetes or clotting disorder) that may affect the outcome of the surgery.
