Tissue Grafting Procedure

Tissue grafting is a procedure periodontists perform to treat receded or thin gums. Gum recession causes exposed roots, which can age a smile and make teeth sensitive. Also, exposed root surfaces are more prone to getting cavities. Whether you wish to enhance your smile by covering exposed root surfaces that make your teeth appear too long, or you no longer want to cringe because the exposed roots are sensitive to hot or cold foods and liquids, soft tissue grafting can help you strengthen your smile.
