Receding gums make our teeth look unusually long, and even though it is a slow process, you will eventually start noticing the damage caused by receding gums. Gingival grafting can fix these problems by covering the exposed tooth. One of the most common reasons behind exposed roots is gum recession caused by gum disease. Gum health is a very important part of your oral health, and if your gums are not healthy, you will start experiencing many other problems as well.
Benefits of gingival grafting
Fix sensitivity issues – Exposed gum roots caused by receding gums also create sensitivity issues. By getting gingival grafts, you will also get relief from sensitivity issues. Sensitivity issues are caused because receding gums expose the roots, and when those roots are covered by gingival grafts, the sensitivity issues also go away. Eating hot and cold food can be very difficult when you have tooth sensitivity, but it will go away if gingival grafting is successful.
Better gum health – Bad gum health is a major issue that you have to face when your gums are receding. With the help of gingival grafting, you can restore your gums and improve your gum health. In many cases, gum disease is responsible for receding gums. The damage caused by gum disease can be reversed with the help of gingival grafting, but first, gum disease is controlled. After the recovery period, taking care of your gum health would become easier.
Cosmetic improvements – Unusually long teeth with exposed roots not only cause sensitivity but also look bad. With the help of gingival grafts, you will also get a better-looking smile. Loose teeth with exposed roots make people self-conscious about their smiles. Gingival grafts cover those roots and make your teeth and gums look normal. After the gingival grafting, you can smile confidently again with a perfect smile.
Prevent bone loss and tooth decay – Gum recession can also cause many other problems like bone loss and root decay. When the roots are exposed for too long, they will start getting damaged. Gum disease causes a variety of problems, and if it is not treated in time, it will continue to cause more serious problems.

How does gingival grafting work?
Gum grafting involves harvesting a piece of healthy gum tissue, and attaching it to that area where gum recession has occurred. Once this procedure is complete, you can go home and take good care of your oral health. The healing process will take some time, and you will have to take a few meds. You will have to visit the dentist’s office because it is very important to keep checking your progress. Eat the foods recommended by the dentists and avoid those foods that are not on the list. It is recommended that you take someone with you to drive you home after the procedure because you will be given some medicines to manage the pain, and it might not be safe for you to drive a vehicle.
