Gum grafting is used when the gums have receded from the tooth. In a healthy mouth you will see that the gums cover the entire root of a tooth. However, with periodontal disease and excessive brushing the gums will loosen from the tooth creating large pockets that bacteria can fill. The bacteria can then grow and reach the root creating a large number of health and dental problems. A gum graft is used to tighten the gums back against the teeth to restore the gum line.
