Gum Grafting

This is a specialised regenerative procedure to restore lost soft gum tissues in a specific localised region of the mouth. A “graft” is taken from either the roof of the mouth, or purchased from a bio-material companies. The material is then placed carefully with fine stitches, into the gum defect site. This is always done under local anaesthesia.
Assessment on a case by case basis is vital in determining the suitability of this regenerative technique.
Following the procedure, localised bruising and swelling is minimal but may occur. A sheet of post-operative instructions is provided strict to help minimise disruption to the surgical area during the initial healing phase. It is often advised that contact sports or swimming activities are avoided for some weeks following the procedure.
