Whether your smile has been eroded by gum disease or you are looking to correct an uneven gum line, a grafting treatment can help. Exposed dental tissue can lead to tooth sensitivity and increased risk for tooth decay. Soft tissue grafting uses tissue from a tissue bank or from the patient themselves (usually from surrounding gum tissue or from the top of the mouth) to replace diminished gums. During the procedure, the donated tissue is sewn onto the gumline, giving it a smoother, more even appearance and covering exposed portions of the tooth. In addition to grafting tissue, tissue-stimulating proteins may be used to speed up recovery. Depending on the patient’s needs, anesthetic and other treatment options can be tailored to them. When you come in for soft tissue grafting in Chino Hills, California, Dr. Leo Man can go over your treatment options.
