Soft Tissue Grafting
Your gums may have receded for a variety of reasons, including aggressive tooth brushing, tooth malpositioning, or periodontal disease. You may not be in control of what caused the recession; but prior to treatment, your periodontist can help you identify factors contributing to the problem. Once these contributing factors are identified and controlled if possible, a soft tissue graft procedure may be used to repair the defect and help to prevent additional recession and bone loss.

Soft tissue grafts may be used to cover roots or develop gum tissue where absent due to excessive gingival recession. Several types of grafts are utilized including your own tissue, usually taken from your palate (autografts), or from another source (allografts). This can be done for one tooth or several teeth.
