A Few Things To Know About Having Gum Graft Surgery For Your Gum Disease
If you have advanced gum disease, your dentist may refer you to a periodontist for gum graft surgery. One result of gum disease is that it causes your gums to recede. As the gums pull away from your teeth, it makes the roots of your teeth and your jaw bone susceptible to infection that can lead to tooth loss. Having the surgery may save your teeth and reverse the gum disease.
