Tissue grafts can be used to replace damaged gums such as those which result from gingivitis (gum disease). A dentist will often employ such a procedure to protect your teeth and to restore your smile.
So, what does a typical graft involve?
– You will have local anaesthesia for comfort.
– Tissue is taken from the roof of the mouth.
– This tissue is then placed over the damaged gum.
– Over time, it will heal and act as a natural replacement.
“The healing process is often quick, taking 1 to 2 weeks for the mouth to heal fully.”
