What Is Soft Tissue Grafting?

  • June 22, 2012

Have your gums receded because of periodontal disease or aggressive brushing? At Dr. DiGiallorenzo’s Collegeville and Williamsport dental offices, we’re using soft tissue grafting to create beautiful, restored smiles for our Philadelphia-area patients.

How Does Soft Tissue Grafting Work?

Regardless of what’s caused your gums to recede, Dr. DiGiallorenzo can help you restore what you’ve lost with a soft tissue graft. During a soft tissue graft, tissue is taken from your palate or a donor source and added to your gumline.

The results of this are twofold. On the one hand, you can look forward to enjoying a more even and attractive gumline. On the other, your exposed tooth roots will be covered, ensuring that you experience less sensitivity and bone loss going forward.

But before Dr. DiGiallorenzo can perform your soft tissue grafting procedure, we want to know what’s caused your gums to recede in the first place. Once we know, we can propose a treatment plan that will control those contributing factors and stabilize your gum recession. Then, once that’s been done, we can begin restoring what your smile has lost.
