How the Process Works
After you’ve had a consultation with Dr. Stroumpos and he’s successfully examined your teeth and gums, he will put together a personalized treatment plan that suits your needs best. Once he schedules you for your soft-tissue, or gum, graft, you can expect this during your appointment:
- We will provide you with a sedative so you can feel relaxed and experience minimal discomfort throughout the procedure.
- First, Dr. Stroumpos will make an incision on the roof of your mouth and remove a piece of tissue from under the flap.
- Then, he will take the tissue and attach it to your gum tissue where there is exposed tooth root.
- After the graft has been removed from under the palatal flap, he will safely stitch the roof of your mouth back down.
