Soft Tissue Graft

At Johnson, DDS, we are able to perform soft tissue grafting for those who have experienced significant resorption, or loss, of the gums. Normally there is a healthy layer of keratinized gum surrounding each tooth which protects it from infection. The recession of this gum tissue due to aging or inadequate oral hygiene can leave teeth roots exposed and vulnerable to decay. Building up the gums will prevent future gum recession and provide a better foundation for restoration placements.
