What is a Gum Graft?
A gum graft, also called a soft tissue graft, is a surgical procedure that is performed to restore a healthy, natural gum line. The procedure, done under a local anesthetic and sedation, involves taking tissue from another area of your mouth, typically the roof of your mouth, and transplanting it over the affected teeth. In some situations, soft tissue may be taken from a tissue bank. Your existing gum tissue and the grafted tissue fuse together, helping to reform a healthy gum line and a beautiful smile.
