Gum Graft Pain What to Expect & How to Relieve Pain

What Is a Gum Graft?

A gum graft is a kind of dental surgery. It is usually done for people with gum recession, which happens when tissues in the gum wears away and leads to more tooth exposure at the root. Without a gum graft, gum recession would make you feel more sensitive to cold or drink foods or drinks. In more serious cases, tooth loss would eventually happen. A gum graft is quite simple and quick to treat this dental issue. Many people also go for this procedure for cosmetic reasons when they need to improve their smile. [1]
