What Is a Soft Tissue Graft?

This treatment is used to help improve the appearance of the the smile around the teeth/dental implant or to help with teeth sensitivity.

Do I Need a Soft Tissue Graft

The most common complaints that might mean you may need one are:

  • Receding gum line
  • Teeth roots are exposed
  • Experiencing sensitivity to hot or cold (food
    and liquids)
  • Cosmetic improvement around your teeth or implants

How Long Will The procedure Take?

This does vary depending on how severe your case is and what exactly is required. This could potentially take between 1 or 2 hours. There will be some slight discomfort after the procedure, most most patients will be able to return to work the following day.

For the gums to fully heal it will take roughly between 2-4 weeks.
