A gum grafting procedure can take place if your gums exceed more than about 5 millimetres in depth. Gum grafting helps prevent periodontal disease or restore gum tissue to a healthy natural state.
Bone grafting for dental implants is sometimes required when the time between loss of bone and surgery is extensive. Grafting of bone where it has been lost, encourages the development of optimal foundations, which are essential for dental implants.
