What is Gum Grafting?

At Verity Smile Studio in Indianapolis, IN, we understand the importance of healthy gums for a beautiful smile and optimal oral health. Unfortunately, gum recession is a common problem that can affect both the aesthetics and functionality of your gums. Gum grafting is a highly effective procedure that we offer to restore the health and appearance of your gums. With our expertise in gum grafting, we can help you regain confidence in your smile and ensure the long-term health of your gum tissues.

Gum grafting, also known as periodontal plastic surgery, is a surgical procedure that involves taking gum tissue from one area of the mouth and grafting it onto another area with receding gums. This procedure is performed by our skilled dental professionals at Verity Smile Studio in Indianapolis, IN to restore the gumline, cover exposed tooth roots, and enhance the overall appearance of the gums.

How Verity Smile Studio can help

Restoring Gum Tissue: Gum recession can be caused by various factors, including periodontal disease, aggressive tooth brushing, or genetic predisposition. Regardless of the cause, gum grafting is an effective solution for restoring lost gum tissue. By grafting healthy gum tissue onto the areas of recession, we can recreate a natural gumline, covering exposed roots and protecting them from further damage.

Enhancing Aesthetics: Receding gums can have a significant impact on the aesthetics of your smile. They can make your teeth appear longer and create an uneven gumline, which affects the overall harmony of your smile. Gum grafting helps to improve the appearance of your gums by creating a symmetrical and balanced gumline, giving you a more youthful and attractive smile.

Reducing Tooth Sensitivity: When the tooth roots become exposed due to gum recession, they become susceptible to sensitivity to hot, cold, or sweet stimuli. This can cause discomfort and affect your ability to enjoy certain foods and beverages. Gum grafting covers the exposed tooth roots, reducing sensitivity and restoring your ability to eat and drink comfortably.

Preventing Further Gum Recession: Gum grafting not only addresses existing gum recession but also helps prevent further recession. By covering exposed roots, the grafted tissue acts as a protective barrier, preventing additional gum tissue loss and preserving the stability of your teeth and surrounding structures.

Promoting Gum and Bone Health: Healthy gums are essential for maintaining optimal oral health. Gum grafting promotes gum health by providing a thick and robust gumline that is less prone to inflammation and infection. Additionally, gum grafting can help prevent bone loss by preserving the integrity of the supporting structures of the teeth.

Long-Term Success: Gum grafting is a proven and reliable procedure with long-term success. The grafted tissue integrates with your existing gums, providing a permanent solution to gum recession. By maintaining excellent oral hygiene practices and regular dental visits, you can ensure the longevity of your gum graft and enjoy the benefits of a healthy and beautiful smile for years to come.
