Choose From Two Treatments, Including the Pain-Free Pinhole Technique

Gum grafting is a reliable way to replace missing gum tissue, improve your gumline, and protect your tooth roots. We’ll discuss each step of the treatment beforehand so you’ll know what to expect. During your gum graft appointment, Dr. Juarez or Dr. Arnold will:

  • Use local anesthetic to numb the area for your comfort
  • Take a small amount of tissue from inside your mouth and place it in the affected area along your gumline
  • Secure the gum graft

Following a brief healing period, your gumline – and your smile – will look healthier and more attractive.

If gum grafting is not right for you, your dentist may recommend another form of gum recession treatment, the revolutionary Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. If you decide on this method, we will:

  • Numb the affected area
  • Gently loosen your gumline through a pin-sized hole
  • Carefully guide your gums back over your tooth roots

Regardless of which gum recession treatment you choose, our friendly team will help you relax during your procedure with dental sedation.

If you are experiencing gum disease, we can perform a “deep cleaning” using scaling and root planing to restore your gums to health. However, there are other causes of gum recession, including tobacco use, including smokeless tobacco, genetic factors, teeth grinding, and brushing your teeth too hard.

To restore your smile with Houston gum grafts, call our office today at 832-463-1021 to schedule your appointment. You can also make an appointment online.

Common Questions About Gum Grafts

How do gum grafts work?

If your gums recede due to gum disease or other factors, your tooth roots can be exposed. This causes uncomfortable sensitivity to hot and cold substances. It also makes you more susceptible to dental decay and other problems and can even result in the loss of teeth. To avoid these issues, we can remove tissue from another part of your mouth and transfer it to your gums during a grafting procedure.

How long does it take for gum grafts to heal?

It usually takes only a week or two for a gum graft to heal. However, you will feel better very soon after the procedure. Any minor discomfort is usually easy to manage with over-the-counter medication. We’ll provide you with complete instructions to ensure a speedy and healthy recovery. You’ll need to be careful brushing and flossing for a few days and may need to avoid certain foods as well.

How much do gum grafts cost?

Gum grafts can range in cost depending on your unique circumstances, such as how much gum recession you have experienced. We’ll discuss your cost up front, so there will be no surprises. You can expect the procedure to be several hundred dollars to over $1,000 per tooth. Insurance may cover a portion of this cost.

When should you get gum grafts?

Gum grafts are a surgical procedure that helps those who have experienced gum recession, often from advanced gum disease. Receding gums expose the roots of your teeth, which looks unattractive and also causes sensitivity. If not corrected, it can eventually result in the loss of teeth.
