GUM GRAFT TREATMENT
Gum graft surgery is performed to correct the effects of gum recessions. Gum recession occurs when the gum tissue wears away and exposes more of the tooth’s root. Many patients experience sensitivity when the roots are exposed. If left untreated, it could eventually lead to tooth loss. Many patients choose to have a gum graft surgery to enhance their smile or to protect the exposed tooth from damage.
How long does gum graft surgery procedure take?
Normally, a gum graft surgery procedure takes about one and a half hours to complete. Depending on your case, it could take more time.
