Gum Grafts

The purpose of gum grafting is to create an amount of attached gum tissue to reduce the likelihood of further gum recession and eventually tooth loss. Other purposes for this procedure are to cover exposed root surfaces, to enhance appearance of the teeth and gum line and to prevent or treat sensitivity.
