Gingival Graft | Gum Augmentation

A gingival graft, also called gum graft or periodontal plastic surgery, is a generic name for any of a number of periodontal surgical procedures in which the gum tissue is grafted. The aim may be to cover exposed root surfaces or merely to augment the band of keratinized tissue.

After your gum grafting procedure, please ensure that you do not spit or rinse vigorously as this may remove bone graft material from the grafted site. Antibiotics are essential post op.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
