Surgical Treatment Options
Gum disease is an infection of the gum tissue that leads to swollen gums, bleeding gums, and bad breath. In order to restore gum health, it’s necessary to remove the infection and to help support the gums as they heal. Once the infection is removed, a gum graft may be performed to add tissue to the gums. Gum grafts can be done using a donor tissue or from the patient’s own tissue, and this donor tissue can be from the palate or another source. After the tissue graft heals, the gums can return to their healthy, pink state.
