What Is Gum Grafting?

Gum grafting is a procedure that is meant to reverse gum recession. Typically, it involves removing a small piece of tissue from the roof of a patient’s mouth and then attaching that tissue to a portion of the gums that has suffered from a degree of recession. Over time, your body should integrate the grafted tissue, allowing it to serve as a normal, natural-looking part of your smile.
