Gum Grafting

Our Edmonton dentists perform gum grafts to reduce tooth sensitivity caused by a receding gum line, and help improve the appearance of your smile.

What is a Gum Graft?

A gum graft is a surgical procedure where your dentists transplants gum tissue from the roof of the mouth to another area of the gums to cover exposed tooth roots.

Gum Recession

Gum recession occurs when gum tissue pulls back from the teeth, exposing the tooth root, often a result of severe gum disease.

An exposed tooth root can cause severe tooth sensitivity, particularly when it is exposed to hot or cold temperatures. Gum recession usually happens slowly, so many people do not realize it is happening until they begin to feel discomfort.

When left untreated, gum recession can eventually lead to tooth loss because the exposed root is more susceptible to decay. 

Cosmetic Applications

In some cases, people choose to have a gum graft for cosmetic reasons, to reduce the perceived length of the teeth and gums.
