Gum Grafting


When a tooth is lost not only is the bone impacted but also the gums and surrounds can be affected.  

The health and structure of the gum at the site of an implant is essential to maximise both the functional and cosmetic results of any implant procedure.

Gum grafting restores what is lost and ensures that your implant has a healthy coverage of gum tissue.

Gum grafts are usually taken from the roof of the mouth in a simple procedure using local anaesthetic.
