What is a soft tissue graft?

Reset Decrease Increase
Soft tissue graft is also known as gingival graft. Soft tissue graft is a procedure that allows the dentist to correct gums that are pulled away from the tooth and are exposing the root surface.

The lengthening of the teeth can really age a person smile.

If left uncorrected, the loss of protective gum tissue may also lead to more severe gum problems along the way.

With grafting, the dentist can restore the attractive look of the gums.

Healthy gums are snagged against the teeth and the roots don’t show.

The first step in placing a graft is to thoroughly numb the involved areas. Then the graft is taken from the donor site on the palate.

In some cases, the incision heals on its own. In other cases is closed with a stitch or two.

At the site of the graft, the dentist will gently separate the gums from the tooth. This creates a flap which allows the dentist to have access to the area.

The dentist will then carefully remove any plaque and tartar from the root surfaces. The graft is carefully positioned and stitched into place.

After healing for a few weeks, the grafted tissue blends in beautifully.
