What Is Gum & Soft Tissue Grafting?

Gum and soft tissue grafting procedures aim to restore gum health, protect tooth roots, reduce sensitivity, and improve a smile’s overall appearance. They involve taking a piece of gum or soft tissue from one part of the mouth to another. This graft will cover exposed tooth roots, creating a healthy gum line. 

Types of Gum & Soft Tissue Grafting

Types of gum and soft tissue grafting include:

  • Connective tissue: This is one of the most common types of graft. It involves taking a piece of tissue from below the top layer of the mouth’s roof (palate) and placing it in the problem area.
  • Free gingival: Like connective tissue grafts, this process includes taking a piece of tissue from the palate and grafting it to a receded area of the gums. However, it differs by using a thin piece of tissue from the palate’s top layer.
  • Pedical: This grafting procedure uses healthy gum tissue adjacent to the problem area. The tissue is rotated or stretched to add gum volume while remaining partially attached to its blood supply.  

In certain cases, our periodontists will use sterilized graft material from human or animal donors. These are called allografts (human) and xenografts (animal). Additionally, they may use synthetic graft material when beneficial. 

What Conditions Can Gum & Soft Tissue Grafting Treat?

Gum and soft tissue grafting can treat gum recession and complications related to gum disease. Whether you have exposed tooth roots, thinning/weak gums, or loose teeth, these procedures could restore and strengthen your gums.
