Reasons to Consider a Soft Tissue Graft
Posted on 6/10/2019 by ROOT™ Periodontal and Implant Center
Going to the dentist is scary for many people. The fear comes from wondering if they are maintaining good oral health. They do not want to hear that they need to have some type of dental procedure. There are some procedures that sound scarier than others. Hearing that you might need a soft tissue graft is something that can frighten you, but much of that fear comes from the lack of knowledge about what it is and the reasons for it. What Is It There are several different types of soft tissue grants. They all involve the use of soft tissue stitched to the gums. The tissue can come from under a flap cut into the palate or directly from the palate. It can come from tissue at or near the affected area. It can also come from a donor source. Once the tissue is procured, it is then grafted to the gums with sutures that usually dissolve on your own. Recovery time for soft tissue grants is typically one to two weeks. It is a surgical procedure that is done in the office. It is a same day procedure. Why Get It So, the next question is why would anyone need to undergo this type of procedure. The reasons for soft tissue grants center around the idea of receding gums. There are many reasons people suffer from receding gums including age, gum disease and trauma. Receding gums can lead to a variety of problems. As the gums recede, pockets and gaps form around the teeth and gums. It exposes more of the roots and the teeth. These pockets become a breeding ground for bacterial buildup, plaque and tartar. These can lead to problems with tooth decay and gum disease. It can also cause teeth to become loose. Break or fall out. The soft tissue grants can replace the gums that were lost. They can also improve the smile of the person who may feel their teeth are too long, they have unwanted gaps and have lost teeth.
