In severe cases of periodontal disease, your gums may become so receded that the roots of your teeth are exposed, which can cause a host of additional problems. When this happens, our periodontist, Dr. Bui, may recommend a soft tissue, or gum, graft. This surgical procedure graft healthy tissue into your gums to replace the infected tissue and help any lost tissue grow back. For more information, we welcome you to contact AZ Dental at 408-738-1000.
