Reasons You May Need a Graft on the Roof of Your Mouth
Posted on 2/10/2020 by Dr McMurray
One of the most important features of the mouth is the teeth. Not only do they have an aesthetic value, but also help with the way we talk and also on digestion.
As such, when someone starts to have issues affecting their teeth, then it's very likely that you will also have issues with the other parts as well.
The gums are quite instrumental in maintaining the mouth's structural integrity. For this purpose, when the gums have issues, you might need a gum tissue graft. In such cases, the tissue graft is recommended when your gums are receding. In such a case, you are likely to find the gums heading backwards and exposing the roots of the teeth which can be quite painful.
Reasons Why You Should Get A Gum Graft
As previously highlighted, one of the biggest reasons someone can get a gum graft mainly has to do with having a gingival recession. This procedure includes getting some tissue from the patient's palate and fusing it to the location where there is recession of the gums.
When you get your gum graft, then your gums are stabilized and strengthened to make it that much solid so that it can properly hold the tooth and the pressure when chewing. Getting the gum graft also means that the teeth whose roots were exposed can then get some form of relief since the inner parts of the tooth will now be covered.
