Types of Gum Graft Surgeries

Connective tissue grafts

Tissue is removed from the roof of the mouth by making a flap. It is then stitched onto the gum tissue, to cover the exposed tooth rot. Once the receding gum is covered, the flap on the roof of the mouth is stitched and closed.

Free gingival grafts

This technique is used on patients who have a thin gum line. Here, the tissue is removed directly from the top layer of tissue present on the mouth’s roof. It is then stitched over the existing gum area.

Pedicle grafts

This type of gum graft surgery is usually performed on patients who have a lot of gum tissue growing near their exposed tooth. Here, the dentist will create a tissue flap parallel to the recession site and use it to cover the receding gum tissues.
