GUM GRAFTING One Tooth

Gum Grafting Case 1

In this case, the goal of the gum graft was not so much to cover the gum recession (technically, it is not a recession but a pseudo-recession) but to increase the thickness of the gum tissue as the teeth were going to be moved with braces towards the pseudo-recession and therefore create a real recession.

Gum Grafting Case 2

This patient presented a recession on his canine combined with a root resorption. I decided to repair the resorption and do a gum graft. The patient was very pleased with the long term results as he had been previously told his tooth needed to be extracted.
