Soft Tissue Grafting in Burbank, CA


A woman ready for our Soft Tissue Grafting Procedure in Burbank, CA Your gums and the soft tissues in your mouth are incredibly important to your overall oral health. When your gums don't adequately cover your teeth, your teeth are vulnerable to damage and decay. Have you experienced pain in your gums or an increase of cavities? You might need soft tissue grafting from Pacific Implant Group in the Burbank, CA, area.

Soft tissue grafting, also known as gum grafting, is an effective way of repairing the soft tissues in your mouth to restore its appearance and health.

Cosmetic Soft Tissue Grafting

Soft tissue grafting is helpful in changing the way your gums meet your teeth. Gums can recede for a handful of reasons, the most common being age or poor brushing habits. If your gums recede too far, your teeth will look longer and you might see gaps between the teeth that weren't there before.

With a soft tissue grafting procedure, you can restore your gumline to its natural position against your teeth, giving you a naturally beautiful smile.

Medical Soft Tissue Grafting

Not only does gum recession change the way your teeth look, but it also opens the door for tooth decay. Whitish enamel covers the crown of your tooth, but the enamel stops where the tooth goes beneath the gum. When your gums recede, this unprotected portion of your tooth is exposed and vulnerable.

A soft tissue graft can re-cover these sensitive parts of your teeth and reduce your risk of tooth decay and infection.

At Pacific Implant Group, we use three soft tissue grafting procedures:
  • Free gingival grafting, which uses skin harvested from the roof of the mouth
  • Connective tissue grafting, which uses tissue from beneath the skin on the roof of the mouth
  • Pedicle grafting, which uses tissue from elsewhere in the mouth
For more information about these procedures or to schedule an appointment for a soft tissue grafting procedure near Burbank, CA, call us at (818) 975-3888.
