Gum grafting

Specialty of Odonthology

The gum graft is a surgical procedure that involves using tissue from the palate of the patient (most recommended), or synthetic, and place it in the place where the roots of the teeth have been exposed by receding gums. The dentist will use local anesthesia to treat the affected area, on which he placed a protective cover after making the graft, which was withdrawn a week later, approximately. This technique reduces the chances of losing teeth and provides protection to the roots. It also reduces sensitivity to temperature changes and improves the appearance or aesthetics of the smile. After surgery, the patient may notice some discomfort at the gum or the area from which the tissue was removed for grafting. Typically, the pain goes away within a week or two.
