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.”
