"A gum graft (also known as a gingival graft), is a collective name for surgical periodontal procedures that aim to cover an exposed tooth root surface and preserve bone with grafted oral tissue.
Exposed tooth roots are usually the result of gingival recession due to periodontal disease. There are other common causes, including overly aggressive brushing, trauma and orthodontics.
Here are three types of gum grafting done in our office.

I just had a painless dental implant done by Dr. Mark Wilson. Dr. Wilson and all of his staff were very professional, helpful, and friendly. The procedure was amazingly smooth. The rooms are state-of-the-art, immaculate and welcoming with wall to wall windows looking out on the mall. This dentistry practice makes the whole process very comfortable.
I want to thank Dr.Wilson, Valerie, John, Summer and Ericka for the excellent service they provided to me.They are a team you can trust and they support you every step of the way. A patient could not be in better hands.
