Gingival grafts

They are indicated to strengthen fragile gums that tend to retract, which has the disadvantage of exposing the sensitive part of the root of the teeth, resulting in dental hypersensitivity. In addition, as a result of teeth brushing, the dental root can widen, causing food to accumulate in the concavities at the base of the teeth after meals.

The graft consists of taking gum from the palate and then attaching it between the gum and the loosened dental root using micro-sutures. These grafts are also used in dental implants, to shape the gingiva and thus give more naturalness to the implant restoration procedure.
