Types of Gum Grafts

Gum grafting can be divided into different types based on the severity of the case, the damage to the gums, and the necessary procedures for each patient and the source of the gum to be grafted. Therefore, types of gum grafts can be detailed in the following points:

  • Free tissue grafts: This type of graft supports thin gums for people who need extra gum, and in these cases, the gum is grafted directly into the affected area.
  • Connective tissue grafts: The most common type of gum grafting surgeries, the main goal is to treat gum degeneration in the affected areas, where a part of the gum under the teeth whose roots have beendamaged is added and then merged with the existing gum and over time, new gum grows.
  • Lateral grafts: In this type of graft, the tissues of the teeth adjacent to the affected gum teeth are used due to their durability, strength, and abundance.

In some cases, patients may prefer to get gum from an artificial source from medical laboratories instead of their own gum tissue in the mouth to achieve higher quality and efficiency results, and you can read about treating gum problems naturally through this article.
