Types Of Gum Grafting

There are three types of gum grafting surgery. The type we use will depend on your own unique situation, the degree of gum disease that you have experienced, and your specific needs. There are three types of gum grafting surgery:

  • Connective Tissue Grafts
  • Free Gingival Grafts
  • Pedicle Grafts

Do You Have Periodontal Disease? A Gum Graft May Be Right for You in Las Vegas & Henderson!

Periodontal disease can take its toll on the gum tissues, leaving gums unable to perform their expected functions. In many cases, gum recession is the result of gum disease, and this gum recession causes:

  • Exposure of the tooth roots, leading to increased sensitivity
  • Risk of decay at the base of the teeth where the gums have receded
  • Potential for tooth loss
  • Appearance related worries

One of the most common ways to treat receding gums is through gum recession surgery, such as a gum graft in Las Vegas as performed by Dr. David J. Trylovich, Dr. Ryan S. Gifford, Dr. Brian P. Mantor, and Dr. Gary D. Goaslind.


Three Types of Gum Grafts

Gum grafts fall into three different types: connective tissue grafts, free gingival grafts, and pedicle grafts. The type recommended for you will depend on your dental history and current condition.

Connective tissue grafts are regularly performed methods of gum recession surgery
During this procedure, we will take a sample of tissue from under a flap created on the roof of your mouth and suture it to the affected gum area. Eventually, the graft will simply look like part of your natural gum line.
Free gingival grafts
Are a bit different from connective tissue grafts because they use the direct roof-of-mouth tissue and not a sample of tissue from under it. This seems to work best for patients whose gums are thin.
Finally, pedicle grafts use gum tissue from the surrounding tooth
A flap is created in the affected gum tissue, and that flap is pulled over the exposed areas. Patients with excess gum tissue nearby are good candidates for pedicle grafts.
