Gum Grafting in San Ramon, CA

If gum (periodontal) disease has progressed to the more advanced phases, you may develop gum recession. This causes a raised gumline and exposed tooth roots. At San Ramon Family Dental, a part of your gum disease therapy might include gum grafting to revive your gumline. With several different graft options, Dr. Rupam Khanna will create your unique treatment plan to restore your receding gums. Contact our San Ramon, CA dental office to learn how gum graft surgery can fix your gums, cover your teeth, and improve the look of your grin.

There are various types of gum grafts that will be chosen based on your individual needs. Connective-tissue gum grafts are the most common type used to correct root exposure. This involves making an incision in the roof of your mouth to take a little flap of skin. The connective tissue is taken from within the flap and attached to your gums. A free gingival graft is comparable except that more tissue is taken from the roof of the mouth to increase significantly thin gums. The third procedure is a pedicle graft that takes excess tissue from your mouth to cover your tooth roots. During your consultation, Dr. Khanna will guide you to the type of graft that suits your goals.

At San Ramon Family Dental, gum grafting provides many perks for San Ramon, CA men and women suffering from gum recession and similar dental worries, such as:

  • Boosts aesthetic: Culminates in a more consistent and pleasing gumline, enhancing the comprehensive look of an individual's smile
  • Optimizes oral health: By tackling unprotected roots, gum grafting might diminish the possibility of root cavities and other similar oral health issues.
  • Preserves exposed roots: Protects the sensitive teeth roots from outside elements, decreasing pain and sensitivity
  • Prevents further recession: Stabilizes the gum tissue, blocking additional recession and degradation of gums
  • Minimizes the likelihood of tooth loss: Fortifies the zone surrounding the teeth, lowering the hazard of tooth loss caused by diminished support

Everyone at San Ramon Family Dental is friendly and helpful. They contacted me immediately after I left an after-hours message about my fractured tooth. My husband and I have been going there for over five years and are extremely satisfied with the care.
