Gum Grafting - WBOC-TV 16, Delmarvas News Leader, FOX 21 -

Gum Grafting

Gum (gingival and connective tissue) grafts are designed to replace missing tissue in the mouth due to gum disease (periodontal disease), gum recession, or tooth loss. The donor tissue is obtained from another area adjacent to the defect, the roof of the mouth, or cadaver tissue. The several goals of gum grafts are to preserve tooth support, reduce cold sensitivity or improve cosmetics.
