Case 11

Gum grafting

HISTORY - Jayda presented complaining that she did not like the appearance of her gum recession. She had previously been to a dentist who stuck on some pink composite resin onto the recession sites in an effort to try and mask the recession but she was unhappy about the appearance. 

FINAL RESULT - Jayda underwent a single surgery of gum grafting utilising some gum donated from the roof of her mouth and transferred into the site. As it is her own gum the local site heals really quickly. Here we see the final result 6 months after surgery.
