Frequently Asked Questions About Soft Tissue Grafting

What is the difference between the free gingival graft and connective tissue graft?

Connective tissue is attached to the exposed roots of the teeth by a tissue graft. On the other hand, free gingival grafting is always achieved if the presence of solid protective gum tissue around a tooth is to be increased or determined.

Is soft tissue grafting painful?

Depending on the sort of graft, the amount of pain you suffer varies. If no tissue is removed from your palate, you are not likely to have a problem, but you should have mild to moderate discomfort after the operation if the tissue is removed.

What is the success rate of gingival grafts?

The success rate of gingival graft is high with more than 90% success rate. With Dr. Adatrow’s expertise and your compliance with post-operative instruction would reduce success rate to less than 2%. So, you can be worry-free about getting a gum graft.

What is a free gingival graft?

It is similar to connective tissue graft, except that after elevating the flap of skin from the palate or roof of the mouth, it is removed entirely and positioned in the desired gum location. It is usually done in patients with thin gums and who want to thicken or enlarge their gum.
