Gum graft

Gums are the protective, pink tissue that covers jaw bone structures and parts of the roots of our teeth. Healthy gums are thick and have a firm consistency. Thin and infected gums will compromise the structural integrity of the gums, and when the gum margin recedes, we may experience sensitivity to cold temperatures.

What are gum grafts?

Gum grafting is a procedure that enables a new piece of gum tissue to be placed over the exposed root to restore gum tissue.

What is involved?

  • Initial consultation

Our dentists/periodontist will find out the details of your medical and dental history, go through a consultation and examination, and take an x-ray of your teeth and jaws, to confirm if you are a candidate for gum grafting treatment. Thereafter our dentists will discuss with you to recommend the most appropriate solution for your needs.

  • Treatment

Gum grafting is like doing gum plastic surgery in the mouth. The palate (roof of the mouth) offers good quality tissue that can be used as a graft and transplanted onto the recipient area. The gums around the recipient site (the exposed root) are gently lifted away and the graft material is secured in place with fine sutures approximately the size of a hair.

The procedure takes about an hour for a small area and a proportionately longer time for larger areas.

For the first three days, minimal pain, bleeding or swelling is usually experienced. Antibiotics, painkillers and antiseptic mouthwashes will be prescribed to help the healing process.

  • Follow Up Care

After the anaesthetic wears off, you may start eating a soft diet on the non-operated side. Very hot foods and drinks should be avoided to minimize post-operative bleeding. Drinks should be also taken directly from the cup – do not use a straw.

Avoid vigorous exercise or stimulants (e.g. caffeine) for the rest of the day and ensure that you have sufficient rest to aid recovery.

One day after surgery, rinse your mouth gently with antiseptic mouthwash or with warm salt water after meals and before going to bed.

You will be required to visit your dentists/periodontist in the first two weeks for review after surgery. The sutures will also be removed.

Thereafter, regular reviews are maintained for the first three months so that our dental specialist/ dentist can monitor your healing and help maintain an optimally clean environment around the grafted site.
