Soft Tissue Grafting

Soft Tissue Grafting in Greenville

Restore Receding Gum Lines with a Gingival Graft

It may take months to realize that your gums are receding because recession occurs so gradually. There are only a few options for replacement and gum grafting is the most commonly performed procedure to restore the health and appearance of your gums.

Safe and effective, gingival grafts can prevent or correct the following:

  • Unattractive appearance of the smile
  • Receding gums
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Higher risk of tooth decay and gum disease

What Causes Gum Recession?

Receding gums are most commonly caused by prolonged periodontal disease but may also be the result of hormonal imbalance, prescription medications that dry out the mouth, and aggressive brushing. A smoking habit or wearing oral jewelry can also cause you to need a gingival graft.

Soft Tissue Gum Grafts with No Incisions!

An innovative gum grafting technique allows our doctors at Bowman, Padgett and Associates the opportunity to restore your healthy gum lines with less trauma to your gingival tissue. We simply create a tunnel around the affected teeth, protect the root with antibiotic paste, and insert Alloderm grafting material into the tunnel. A special suturing and tacking method allows us to raise the entire gum line into a more ideal position. Your gum tissue is then higher, healthier, and more attractive.
