Soft Tissue Grafting El Segundo, CA
Advanced periodontal disease affects the look of your smile and can lead to the loss of teeth and bone as well as gum tissue. One way to replace the gum tissue that has been destroyed by gum disease is through the use of soft tissue grafting. We’re happy to offer this restorative option for our patients at El Segundo Modern Dentistry and Orthodontics.
What Is Soft Tissue Grafting?
When you have advanced periodontal disease, your gums recede from your teeth, weakening them and making tooth loss more likely. Soft tissue grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces some of this lost gum tissue by taking tissue from elsewhere and grafting it onto the affected area. The result is more gum tissue and stronger teeth. It also makes your smile look better.
