Soft Tissue Grafting

Soft tissue grafting is a dental procedure designed to address gum recession, which can expose the roots of the teeth, leading to sensitivity and potentially risking the health and stability of affected teeth. We offer soft tissue grafting in Martinez and Oakland, California, to improve gum health and enhance the appearance of your smile.

Understanding Gum Recession
Gum recession can be caused by a variety of factors, including:

  • Aggressive tooth brushing
  • Periodontal disease
  • Genetics
  • Tobacco use

Benefits of Soft Tissue Grafting
Soft tissue grafting offers several benefits, including:

  • Reduced Tooth Sensitivity: By covering exposed roots, sensitivity to hot and cold foods can be significantly decreased.
  • Improved Gum Health: Grafting can help prevent further recession and bone loss.
  • Enhanced Aesthetics: Grafting can restore a more natural and pleasing gum line.

The Soft Tissue Grafting Procedure
The procedure involves the following steps:

  • Consultation: Dr. Brandon Kang will assess your needs and discuss the best type of grafting procedure for your situation.
  • Graft Selection: Tissue may be taken from the roof of your mouth or a donor source.
  • Surgical Procedure: The graft is placed in the area of recession and secured.

Recovery and Care
Post-operative care is crucial for successful healing. Patients are advised to:

  • Follow all post-op instructions provided by our oral surgeon
  • Eat soft foods and avoid brushing the grafted area until healing is complete.
  • Attend follow-up appointments to monitor healing.
