Your go-to Westbury periodontist for gum grafting and gingival grafts is Elan Katz, DDS, PC. Gum grafting is a technique used to treat gum recession. Gums are are a vital part in the body’s natural defense against bacteria. When your gums recede it makes it possible for bacteria in the mouth to penetrate the teeth and eventually cause teeth to fall out. Gum recession can also allow infection in the mouth to occur and spread throughout the body. To prevent these problems from worsening we use what is called gum grafting. We take a small piece of tissue from the roof of your mouth and use it to rebuild the lost and damaged gums.
