What Is Gum Grafting?

Gum grafting, also known as a gingival graft, is a periodontal procedure used to combat gum recession—a condition that occurs when the gum tissue surrounding the teeth pulls back, exposing more of the tooth or its root. This can lead to a host of problems, from sensitivity and discomfort to more severe oral health conditions. Gum grafting is designed to cover exposed roots or develop gum tissue where it’s absent, helping to protect your teeth and enhance your smile.

Our Advanced Gum Grafting Technique

Clifton E. Nakatani, DDS, MSD, is renowned for his exceptional skills and progressive approach to periodontal care. He incorporates cutting-edge technology, such as dental lasers, to provide a gum grafting procedure that is as efficient and painless as possible. 

During a gum graft, the gum tissue is either provided by a donor or taken from another area of a patient’s mouth to cover exposed tooth roots. When taking tissue from the patient’s palate, we use a dental laser to eliminate the need for scalpels and sutures; instead, laser gum surgery promotes faster healing, minimal bleeding, and less post-operative discomfort compared to traditional grafting methods.

Why Choose Gum Grafting?

While the thought of oral surgery may seem intimidating, gum grafting is a standard, often necessary procedure that provides numerous benefits—some of which are listed below.

Improved Dental Health

Left untreated, gum recession can lead to severe oral health complications, such as tooth loss. By addressing the issue early with gum grafting, you can prevent these problems from developing, thus securing the future health of your teeth.

Enhanced Aesthetics

Receding gums can lead to the exposure of tooth roots, which can make your teeth appear longer and your smile less appealing. Gum grafting can restore the natural, healthy look of your smile.

Reduced Sensitivity

Exposed roots can cause increased tooth sensitivity, particularly when consuming hot or cold foods and beverages. Covering these roots through gum grafting can significantly reduce this discomfort.

Patient Comfort & Safety First
