Soft Tissue Graft for Receding Gums: Rovi Smile Center, Coral Springs, FL
Do you have receding gums? At dental appointments, your dentist or hygienist will measure the space between your gums and your teeth. If your gums are receding, a soft tissue graft may be recommended.
Receding gums put you at risk for tooth loss, tooth sensitivity as well as create deeper pockets for bacteria to thrive.
Gum disease is a very serious condition that can affect many areas of your health above and beyond your oral health — though with the oral implications alone, it should be treated seriously. Dr. Rovirosa and his Coral Springs, FL dental team can help you with gum recession via a soft tissue graft.
About the Gum Grafting Process as well as the Recovery
Tissue from other areas of the mouth, such as the roof or from other gum areas can be grafted where needed. The area is numbed for the procedure and you will typically need to modify your diet to soft foods for a few days following this procedure. Some swelling and discomfort is normal. This is considered a routine procedure at Rovi Smile Center and we get great feedback from our patients about not only the experience while in the dental chair but also about the recovery process. The length of recovery time is dependent on the size of the area being grafted as well. If you have questions or concerns, we are more than happy to help you get the information you need.
