Gingival grafting, also known as gum grafting or periodontal plastic surgery, is a helpful treatment for those who have receding gums due to hard brushing or periodontal disease. When the gums recede, they pull away from the base of the teeth, exposing the tooth roots. This causes extreme sensitivity and other dental issues. Gum grafting restores your gums by moving them back in place, or by using soft tissues from another part of your body, like the roof of your mouth, and stitching it onto the area. If you have receding gums and are interested in gum grafting in Taylorsville, Utah, please call Aspire Surgical at 801-261-2444 and schedule an appointment with our oral and maxillofacial surgones, Dr. Mark Ryser and Dr. Richard Shamo.
