Benefits of Gum Grafts

Posted on 3/22/2021 by David Mugford
Benefits of Gum GraftsPeriodontitis can leave your gum tissue severely damaged. It causes gums to recede, exposing the tooth's root, which in turn damages the tooth, resulting in tooth loss. Gum grafts are the perfect treatment option for those with damaged gum tissue. The entire process sounds a little scary and can be quite difficult to understand for those without much knowledge about periodontitis.

What is a Gum Graft?

A gum graft is a surgical procedure that involves replacing lost or damaged gum tissue with other healthy tissue either from the mouth, a tissue bank, or another biocompatible source. You may need a gum graft for many reasons, including damage from tobacco use, poorly fitted dental restorations, gum disease, oral piercings, bruxism, etc.

You will need to come in for an evaluation and consultation before we determine which gum graft procedure will be ideal for you. Whatever the procedure may be, gum grafts present several benefits for oral health as compared to other procedures and treatments.

Benefits of Gum Grafts

•  Covers and protects your teeth and its roots. Exposed roots can lead to tooth decay and tooth loss.
•  Reduces Tooth Sensitivity – Exposed roots and teeth are generally more sensitive to hot and cold temperatures.
•  Improves your smile’s visual appearance. Gum recession may leave your teeth overexposed, which can turn your smile unattractive.
•  Reduces the risk of tooth decay and tooth damage.
•  Improves the appearance of your gum line, making it look more even and aesthetically pleasing.

A gum graft is an extensive surgical procedure; thus, you will need to come in for a detailed examination and consultation before beginning the treatment. Gum grafts are ideal for you if you want to protect your oral health. If you want to know more about the health benefits of gum grafts, visit us at The Mugford Center for a consultation.
