At Monte Vista Dental in Turlock, California, we offer a gum graft, which is a graft of gingival tissue to improve your smile after having periodontal issues. Our skilled dentists, Drs. Param and Lavanya Gill may recommend a soft tissue graft, also called a gum graft, to increase your comfort, improve your oral health, and give you a more attractive smile if your gums have receded or if you have an uneven gum line.
Gum recession, where the gums recede away from the teeth expose the root of the tooth making the teeth appear too long. Left untreated, gum recession can cause tooth decay and ultimately, tooth loss. Exposed tooth roots are the result of gingival recession and periodontal (gum) disease, but it can also be caused by trauma and overly aggressive tooth brushing.
At Monte Vista Dental in Turlock, California, we are pleased to offer gum grafting for our patients who need help with their smile. Whether you need gum grafting because of an uneven gum line or gum tissue infected by periodontal disease, our team is here to help. To find out more, or to schedule an appointment with Drs.
