Are You a Candidate for Gum Grafting?

When left untreated, gum disease can lead to a dangerous condition called gum recession. When gum recession occurs, the gum pulls away from the tooth, exposing the roots and leaving you vulnerable to tooth sensitivity and tooth loss. Although your dentist may treat tooth loss with dental implants in Puyallup, WA, gum grafting could save your natural teeth.

During gum grafting, dentists remove tissue from another part of the mouth—usually the roof—and then attach that tissue to the area where the gum has receded. The tissue is positioned so that it covers the exposed roots. Once the tissue is in place, you will have less tooth sensitivity, and you will be less likely to lose the tooth. Most people with gum recession can have gum grafting procedures, though where your dentist sources the tissue to be grafted depends on the severity of the recession and the overall health of your gums.
