Gum Grafting

There are three types of gum graft surgery that may be performed to restore gum tissue, but connective tissue grafts are the most commonly performed. In a connective tissue graft, gum tissue is taken from one area, usually the roof of the mouth, and transferred to cover your exposed root surfaces. Once sutured into place, the donor tissue integrates at the treatment site, resulting in healthier gum levels.

Gum Pocket Reduction

During this gum surgery treatment, which may also be utilized to treat periodontal infection, plaque, tartar, and bacteria are removed from the root surfaces and the bone under the gum line is reshaped to correct any damage sustained over time. The periodontal tissue is then stretched into an improved position, sutured into place, and the excess is trimmed.
