The gum graft is a surgical technique that allows us to increase the width and height of the gingiva in the event of small root exposures , increasing the depth of the vestibule and eliminating the application of braces.

A Free Gingival Graft is particularly indicated in the treatment of small gum recessions in the lower arch, and when the gums of the adjacent teeth are light pink. By ensuring keratinized tissue gain, this will facilitate the oral hygiene of our patients, reducing the accumulation of bacterial plaque.
It is also a technique that we use in the correction of mucosal defects in implants, with the aim of expanding the keratinized gingiva that surrounds them .
Various techniques such as free gingival grafting, connective tissue grafting, acellular matrix, and apical repositioning of the vestibular flap have been used to create a keratinized peri-implant tissue that is easier to maintain and more resistant to mechanical stress.

Come to the clinic and we will perform topical applications of fluoride or desensitizer once a week on the sensitive areas, and you should use a sensitivity toothpaste for 3 months. If after one month the same symptoms continue, a filling can be applied to the exposed root surface or periodontal surgery to cover up what was exposed.
