Gum Graft

Do you have receding gums?

Gum graft surgery can help to restore your gum line and improve the appearance of your smile. It can also help to protect your teeth from further damage.
The team at CURVE Dental Clinic is experienced and dedicated to providing you with the optimal results possible. We understand that having surgery can be daunting, but we will make sure that you are comfortable and relaxed throughout the procedure.

What is gum graft surgery and what are the benefits?

Gum graft surgery involves taking a small piece of tissue from another part of your mouth or using donated tissue to cover the exposed root surfaces. This helps to protect the roots and provide support for the surrounding gum tissues.

Some of the benefits of gum graft surgery include:

Improved appearance of your smile

Reduced sensitivity in exposed root surfaces

Reduction in further gum recession or bone loss

Improved oral health overall

If you are experiencing receding gums, schedule a consultation with us at CURVE Dental Clinic to see if gum graft surgery is right for you. We look forward to helping you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.

Did you know?

The American Academy of Periodontology recommends gum graft surgery for individuals with severe gum recession. It can also be used to prepare the gums for certain types of dental procedures, such as crown lengthening.

What to expect during and after surgery

During the procedure, we will administer local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. The grafting material will then be placed onto the affected area and secured with sutures.

You may experience some discomfort and swelling after the surgery, but this can be managed with pain medication as prescribed by our team. It is important to follow post-operative care instructions carefully to ensure successful healing.

After healing, you can expect a fuller and healthier looking gum line. You may also notice an improvement in sensitivity and overall oral health.

Recovery time and tips for a smooth recovery

Recovery time for gum graft surgery can vary, but it is important to allow enough time for proper healing. In general, it may take about 1-2 weeks before you can resume your normal daily activities. During recovery, it is important to practice good oral hygiene and avoid putting pressure on the grafted area (such as by chewing tough or sticky foods). Our team will provide specific instructions for a smooth recovery and successful healing.
