    What Is a Gum Graft?

    A gum graft, also known as a gingival graft, is a surgical procedure that involves taking a piece of tissue from the roof of your mouth and placing it in the area where your gums are receding. The goal of gum grafting surgery is to cover exposed teeth roots with healthy gum. A gum graft is typically performed by a periodontist who specializes in gum diseases.

    A gum graft is a straightforward minor surgical procedure. It is an extremely common surgery and offers a long-term solution to thinning gums and also is an effective way to prevent sensitivity and reduce your risk of cavities.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    How Does Gum Grafting Work?

    Your gum grafting surgery will typically only take an hour. During the surgery, your periodontist will follow these steps:

    1. Administers the local anesthesia - Your teeth and gums will be numbed, so you don’t feel anything during the operation. 
    2. Prepare your gums and teeth -  Your surgeon will scrub your teeth roots and cut into your gums which is where the new tissue will be inserted. 
    3. Take the gum graft - Then your periodontist will cut a small piece of tissue from the roof of your mouth.
    4. Insert the gum graft - Then your surgeon will place the tissue from your mouth  over your exposed teeth roots.
    5. Place sutures - In the last step, your periodontist will keep your new gum tissue in place with stitches. 

    Following the surgery, you will have gauze and stitches in place. You can take out the gauze within 20 minutes of your procedure. The stitches will typically fall out within a few days. You can leave the clinic shortly after your operation, but it is recommended to be driven home by a family member or close friend. 

    Is Gum Grafting Painful?

    Gum receding surgery is not painful. During the operation, you will receive a local anesthetic that will completely number your teeth and gums. 

    For the next few days following your operation, moderate pain may be present, and you may need to take a few days off work. Over-the-counter pain medication should be enough to alleviate any pain. You will experience some swelling and bleeding, but this should disappear within 48 hours. You should be fully recovered from the procedure within 2 weeks.

    How Much Does Gum Grafting Cost? Is Gum Grafting Expensive?

    The cost of gum grafts ranges from $600 to $1200. If you require gum contouring as well, which improves the overall aesthetics of your teeth, then you can add several hundred dollars to the price. Fortunately, as gum contouring is a medical procedure, your insurance will cover part or even all of the cost.

    Either you have a good vibe or you don’t. I suppose you could fake such a thing for a little while, but that kind of farce would be an unwieldy thing to uphold over time. I’ve been going to this office for years, through two “regimes” now and I’ve never felt anything but good energy. There is also a efficiency to the staff that never comes off as cold or clinical - a remarkable feat in itself.
