Gum Grafting

Reduce Sensitivity and Improve Your Appearance

Gum Grafting Can Restore Healthy Gum Levels – Repair the damage of gum disease with soft tissue grafting.

Gum recession is often seen in patients with advanced gum disease. It is, in fact, one of the most common symptoms of periodontal disease, a condition nearly half of us suffer from (AAP). Dr. Paul Fotek, an experienced periodontist in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, performs gum grafting procedures to correct gum recession for the many patients who are currently seeking a safe and effective method to alleviate the consequences of receding gums. Such symptoms include:

  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Exposed tooth roots
  • Root surface damage
  • Inflamed gum tissue
  • Tooth discoloration near the gum line
  • Teeth appear longer than they used to

Rebuilding the Health and Appearance of Your Gums with Gum Grafting

In a gum grafting procedure, Dr. Fotek can collect healthy gum tissue from one area of your mouth, typically from the palate, and transfer it to the treatment site, covering exposed tooth roots and restoring gum levels. Your newly grafted tissue integrates with the existing tissue to erase all traces of gum recession and form healthier gum lines. In some cases, it is more advisable to use an external source for grafting material, such as when two surgical sites are not recommended. We can still correct your gum recession with gum grafting.

Dr. Fotek simply uses AlloDerm®, a regenerative tissue matrix, in place of your own tissue. This lessens discomfort for you while still achieving excellent results. Healthy gum tissues protect your teeth from infection, damage, and decay. The barrier they provide is not only functional but aesthetically pleasing. You cannot have a beautiful smile without healthy, attractive gum lines. Schedule a consultation with our periodontist in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, to learn more.
