Gingival Graft

Gingival Graft :

Is a gingival graft or gum graft necessary?

A gingival graft is necessary to cover exposed roots causing sensitivity, to preserve the underlying bone structure and to improve the esthetics of your smile.

The procedure:

A gingival graft is a common surgical procedure that is done under local anesthetic and should take roughly 45 minutes.

Postoperative care:

After the surgery you should avoid smoking and chew on the other side.

To aid healing, do not brush this area for a week following the surgery. The dressing covering the graft should remain in place for the entire week.
