Soft Tissue Grafts Can Help Your Mouth Feel Less Pain

Posted on 9/6/2021 by Dr. Boustany
Soft tissue grafting is an important procedure that helps in preventing gum recession. Periodontal disease, aging, trauma, poor tooth positioning, and over-brushing can cause gum recession. Gum recession will result in tooth root exposure, a condition that can be very uncomfortable. Soft tissue grafting will help reduce the discomfort in several ways. How Soft Tissue Grafting Reduces Pain When your tooth roots are exposed, eating cold and hot foods can be uncomfortable. Furthermore, your smile's aesthetic appearance will be affected, and your teeth will be more vulnerable to decay. Soft tissue grafting plays a vital role in combating these conditions by covering the exposed tooth root. It also thickens the existing gum tissue to prevent extended tissue loss. A strip of tissue is removed from the mouth roof and carefully stitched to the grafting site in the soft tissue grafting procedure. This helps promote natural growth. Soft tissue grafting is mostly used for thickening existing tissue. Keep in mind that this procedure is very versatile and has numerous uses. With exposed tooth roots, you will be more vulnerable to infections and tooth sensitivity. However, soft tissue grafting helps cover the exposed area, reducing sensitivity and restoring your oral health. In addition, soft tissue grafting can help get rid of excessive gums. When there are excessive gums around your teeth, it will affect your smile and increase the chances of infections. This is because bacteria can easily build up on the gums and cause infections.

With it, tooth sensitivity, periodontal disease, and other serious conditions are reduced. Contact our offices to schedule a soft tissue grafting procedure....
