Gum Grafting Atherton CA

A gingival graft is designed to solve these problems. A thin piece of tissue is taken from the roof of the mouth or gently moved over from adjacent areas to provide a stable band of attached gingiva around the tooth. The gingival graft may be placed in such a way as to cover the exposed portion of the root.

The gingival graft procedure is highly predictable and results in a stable, healthy band of attached tissue around the tooth. 

With the use of long acting anesthetic and anti-inflammatory medication, the recovery is often smooth and most patients have minimal discomfort.

Allografts Atherton CA

An option for connective tissue grafts is allografts which are using donated tissue which is dermis.  This means that we do not have to take donor tissue from your palate.
