At Hastings Family Dental, we understand the impact that gum recession can have on both your oral health and the appearance of your smile. Soft tissue grafting is a specialized procedure our dentists and team provide to address gum recession, protecting your teeth from the damaging effects of exposure and improving the aesthetics of your gum line.

Soft tissue grafting involves:

  • Assessment and Planning: A thorough evaluation to determine the extent of gum recession and the best course of action.
  • Graft Selection: Choosing the appropriate type of graft, which may involve taking tissue from the palate or using donor materials.
  • The Grafting Procedure: Gently placing the graft material at the site of recession to encourage natural regeneration and attachment.
  • Healing and Recovery: Offering detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth healing process, optimizing the success of the graft.

Benefits of soft tissue grafting include:

  • Enhanced protection for tooth roots exposed by gum recession
  • Reduced sensitivity and discomfort associated with exposed roots
  • Improved appearance and symmetry of the gum line
  • Prevention of further gum recession and bone loss

Soft tissue grafting is a proactive step towards maintaining a healthy, beautiful smile and preventing future oral health issues.
