Soft Tissue Grafting in Burbank, CA


A woman ready for our Soft Tissue Grafting Procedure in Burbank, CA Your gums play an important role in your oral health and the appearance of your smile. Pacific Implant Group provides a wide array of advanced treatment options, including soft tissue grafting, here at our office in North Hollywood.

Gum grafting and oral health

Gum recession is a common problem, especially among patients with periodontal disease. This exposes the surface of the tooth root, which is not as hard and durable as the enamel that covers the crown. Therefore, affected teeth are especially vulnerable to decay and infection. Grafting replaces the gum tissue, protecting your teeth, and restoring a healthy gum line.

Cosmetic gum surgery

When you look at your smile in the mirror, you probably look at your teeth. If they look a bit too long, uneven, and slightly gapped at the base the problem might not be your teeth at all. Gum recession exposes part of the root, making teeth appear longer. Because this is a common condition in older adults, gum recession can age the appearance of your smile. A grafting procedure creates a healthy, aesthetically pleasing gum line that becomes the ideal frame for your dazzling smile.

The procedure

There are several types of soft tissue grafting techniques. After an examination and diagnostic analysis, your dentist will recommend the best option for your needs.
  • Connective tissue grafting – The most common technique uses a tiny bit of tissue that is removed from beneath a flap created in the roof of the mouth and transferred to the gum line.
  • Free gingival grafting – This technique also uses tissue from the roof of the mouth, but no flap is created. Instead the tissue is harvested directly.
  • Pedicle grafting – This technique uses gum tissue from another area of the mouth.
