Gingival Grafts

There are various types of gingival grafts that can be done to either build up the gum tissue around teeth, or to cover roots that have recession. Depending on the type and location of recession will determine the type of gingival tissue grafts that can be done. Sometimes we use your tissue from the roof of the mouth (it grows back) and sometimes we used freezedried skin to cover the roots which is an FDA approved sterile material. We do not have to have a second surgical site with that material. The correct choice of graft will be done for your situation.
