The gum tissue had begun to recede from this lower incisor. Our patient complained about sensitivity, and she was concerned that the recession and sensitivity could get worse.


Connective tissue grafting returned the gum line to its normal level. The procedure has improved dramatically, compared to how gum grafting used to be done. Connective tissue grafting is a microsurgery with a very comfortable postoperative experience. Notice that the tissue color match is perfect — a typical outcome of this procedure.
