Soft Tissue grafting is performed to correct gum recession around the teeth. When necessary, soft tissue grafting can be performed around implants to help preserve gum tissue and implant longevity.
The two most common tissue grafts are Connective Tissue Grafts and Free Gingival Grafts. There are several sources in which to obtain soft tissue, such as:
- Your own tissue grafted from another site in your mouth
- Donor tissue
- Porcine (Pig) Tissue
