Bay Area dentist offers soft tissue grafting
When there is a concern regarding receding gum tissue, the team at the Bay Area at the Center for Implant Dentistry may suggest a procedure known as soft tissue grafting. Soft tissue grafting, also known as gum grafting, is a treatment that can help in covering exposed tooth roots and repairing defects caused by bone loss or periodontal disease. It can also be used as an aesthetic procedure for patients who have naturally high gum lines that affect the appearance of their smiles and make them feel self-conscious about their appearance.
Drs. Sambhav Jain, Arpana Gupta, and Shivani Gupta at the Center for Implant Dentistry encourage patients to learn about the advantages of soft tissue grafting. Soft tissue grafting can reduce further recession, bone loss, and can cover roots, which may be exposed and susceptible to decay. This procedure can also reduce tooth sensitivity and provide better aesthetics.
Soft tissue grafting is done during a single procedure. Patients are educated on what to expect before, during, and after their treatment so they are ready for the procedure. Our treatment is done under both local anesthetics and oral conscious sedation for patient comfort. This does require patients to arrange transportation and is discussed beforehand when the appointment is scheduled. We want our patients to have the information they need so they can make knowledgeable decisions regarding their dental health and wellness, with a team of dedicated professionals on hand for any questions they may have.
If you live in or around the Bay Area and are interested in learning more about soft tissue grafting or any other dental restorations and surgeries available at the Center for Implant Dentistry, contact Drs. Sambhav Jain, Arpana Gupta, and Shivani Gupta today to book an appointment. We welcome new patients into our practice and can build a positive working relationship with those who are ready to take charge of their smile, restore their appearance, and improve the function of their teeth with implants and other restorations.
