Soft Tissue Grafting (“Gum Grafting”)

When recession of the gingiva (“gum”) or inadequate amount of attached gums occurs, the body loses its natural defense against both bacterial penetration and trauma, such as orthodontic movements. When gum recession occurs, or if there is an inadequate amount of attached gum tissue present, gum reconstruction using grafting techniques is an option. The gingival graft procedure is highly predictable and results in a stable healthy band of attached tissue around the tooth.   Gingival grafts can be performed before, during or after orthodontic treatment to provide adequate gingival support and stability.

Dr. Konikoff was amazing. My procedure had no complications and I barely had any pain. He was very professional and the best thing is that he called later during the day of procedure to check on me. I really appreciate them and they were very flexible with the scheduling. I highly recommend them.

Dr. Konikoff called me at home on his day off to discuss a concern. I really appreciate that he took the time to get back to me so quickly and address my issue. The entire staff has been wonderful from the first phone call through the procedure and during the recovery.

This experience was so simple. A cover was made for the roof of my mouth on the day of surgery which alleviated discomfort. My results are exactly as I had hoped. I highly recommend contacting Konikoff Salzberg to anyone needing dental care.
