FAQ’S About Gum Grafting

What is Gum Grafting?

A gum graft is a type of dental surgery that is performed to correct the effects of gum recession. It is a relatively quick and simple surgery, where healthy gum tissue is removed from the roof of your mouth and it is used to build the gum back up where it has receded.

What has caused my gums to recede?

Some people have very thin gums, that get stripped away over time due to forces from tooth brush abrasion or just from functional forces. Others don’t have enough bone to support the teeth. History of previous trauma, Orthodontic Treatment, and Gum disease can contribution to your receding gums as well.

What are the complications of gum loss?

When the gums strip away, the teeth can start to get sensitive. The gums can start to become inflamed and painful. Your smile can start to look aesthetically displeasing, and there can be future bone and tooth loss.

How Painful is a gum graft?

This will depend on the type of gum graft performed. If there is soft tissue removed from the palate, then this area can be uncomfortable for a few days following the procedure.

Is a gum graft permanent?

Gums Grafts should fully heal within one or two weeks. Follow up appointments are necessary to review the success and healing of the procedure. While most gum grafts last a significant period of time, the main issue is treating the underlying issue as to why the gums had receded in the first place.

How much does a gum graft procedure cost?

Gum Grafting can range in costs depending on the number of teeth involved and the type of procedure and grafting being used. Sometimes, a gum grafting procedure is performed as part of a bigger procedure such as a Smile Makeover or Dental Implants. At The Smile Designer, we will go through all your options and costs once we have reviewed your case. Payment options can be discussed as well.
