In case where the quality of the gums around the teeth receded has become deficient, an option to improve this condition may be a type of periodontal plastic surgery called a soft tissue graft or gingival graft. With this procedure, donor tissue is obtained from the roof of the mouth and then transplanted to the area around the tooth. In addition to the improvement in the quality of the new tissue, the healthier gums will now be more resistant to future recession.
