What is Soft Tissue Graft?

This procedure is instrumental in addressing gum recession and enhancing the overall health and appearance of the gums. In this article, we will delve into what soft tissue grafting entails, how it helps, and why Verity Smile Studio is the premier choice for this procedure.

Soft tissue grafting, also known as gum grafting, is a surgical procedure performed to augment the gum tissue around the teeth. It is often recommended for patients experiencing gum recession, a condition where the gum tissue pulls away from the teeth, exposing the roots and potentially leading to tooth sensitivity, decay, and aesthetic concerns.

During the soft tissue grafting procedure at Verity Smile Studio, our skilled periodontal specialists carefully harvest tissue from another area of the mouth, typically the palate or nearby gum tissue. This tissue is then meticulously placed and sutured onto the affected areas of the gums, covering exposed roots and restoring a healthy and natural gum line.

How Verity Smile Studio can help

Soft tissue grafting offers numerous benefits to patients, including:

Protecting Tooth Roots: Exposed tooth roots are more susceptible to decay, sensitivity, and damage. Soft tissue grafting helps cover and protect these vulnerable areas, reducing discomfort and minimizing the risk of further dental problems.

Preventing Tooth Loss: Severe gum recession can compromise the stability and health of the teeth, potentially leading to tooth loss if left untreated. Soft tissue grafting helps strengthen the gums' attachment to the teeth, reducing the risk of tooth loss and preserving dental function.

Improving Aesthetics: Gum recession can detract from the beauty of the smile, making the teeth appear longer and uneven. Soft tissue grafting restores a more balanced and attractive gum line, enhancing the overall aesthetics of the smile and boosting self-confidence.

Enhancing Oral Health: Healthy gum tissue is essential for maintaining optimal oral health. Soft tissue grafting promotes gum health by covering exposed roots, reducing the risk of infection, and facilitating proper oral hygiene practices.
