Minimally invasive gum grafting microsurgery

Gum grafting is a minimally invasive microsurgery that requires a small tunnel incision as well as two micro-sutures. Dozens of stitches or the harvesting of thick slabs of gum tissue are no longer needed, because we use the micro-surgical tunnel technique. This is a technique that has minimal to no post-operative discomfort with a very reliable and predictable result.

  1. To cover recession and re-establish a normal looking tooth
  2. To restore a thick protective tissue around the tooth
  3. To add volume to the gums where there is a deficiency such as a previous extraction site that has collapsed
