With an in-office state-of-the-art laboratory and our collaborative dental treatment team consisting of periodontists, prosthodontists, cosmetic and general dentists, including Board-certified periodontist, Lea Planzos, DMD, MS we offer compelling solutions for gum recession, including gum grafting.

Gum grafting involves transplanting healthy gum tissue to areas experiencing recession, protecting exposed tooth roots and enhancing your smile. Whether utilizing donor tissue or innovative allografting techniques, our periodontists tailor gum grafting to address individual needs, ensuring optimal outcomes.

Ideal candidates for gum grafting
Are you seeking to treat receding gums and undergo a comprehensive oral evaluation to determine suitability? During the procedure, local anesthesia ensures comfort as the periodontist meticulously grafts tissue to restore gum health. This involves assessing the extent of gum recession, identifying underlying causes, and evaluating overall gum and tooth health. By addressing gum recession with grafting, patients not only improve the aesthetics of their smile but also enhance gum health, reduce tooth sensitivity, and prevent further recession and potential tooth loss. Our team provides personalized care and support to ensure optimal outcomes.


During gum grafting surgery, the periodontist begins by administering local anesthesia to ensure the patient’s comfort. Once numb, the periodontist carefully removes tissue from the donor site, typically the roof of the mouth, or utilizes donor tissue material. This tissue is then meticulously grafted onto the areas of gum recession, covering exposed roots and promoting new tissue growth. Finally, the grafting material is sutured into place, and an antibacterial rinse is used to clean and soothe the surgical sites.

Throughout the procedure, the periodontist pays close attention to detail, ensuring precise placement and optimal coverage of the affected areas. Depending on the type of gum grafting performed, such as free gingival grafts or connective tissue grafts, different techniques may be employed. The entire process typically takes about an hour, providing patients with an effective solution to address gum recession and restore a healthier gumline.
