Are you living with gum recession? If so, soft tissue grafting may be the ideal treatment. Gum recession is often the result of aging, forceful brushing, periodontal disease, and poor tooth positioning. Left untreated, it can lead to tooth-root exposure.
With soft tissue grafting, Dr. Amin Samadian can cover your exposed tooth root or thicken your existing gum tissue to prevent further tissue loss.
Gum grafting traditionally is the surgical transfer of soft tissue from one part of your mouth to another. It is intended to repair areas of your smile that have sustained gum recession and can reduce sensitivity and discomfort. In modern techniques, synthetic grafts are used instead of taking anything from the roof of the mouth which makes the healing process much faster and easier.
There are a number of reasons Dr. Amin Samadian may recommend soft tissue grafting. Since root exposure can lead to a loss of teeth, it is necessary to restore a healthy gum area. Gum grafting may also help you resolve a “toothy” appearance and put an end to tissue and bone loss.

Before the procedure, the area above and below your gum line will be deep cleaned to clear your teeth and roots of tartar. During soft tissue grafting, in a traditional approach, Dr. Amin Samadian will take gum tissue from your palate or a donor source and make a small incision to cover the exposed root and in the modern approach (see Pinhole technique) synthetic grafts will be used to cover the recession. Depending on your unique situation, he may perform this procedure for one of your teeth or several of them.
Since Dr. Amin Samadian typically performs soft tissue grafting under local anesthesia, you can expect minimal pain and discomfort.
After gum grafting, you can enjoy less tooth sensitivity and improve the esthetics of your smile. In addition, you can halt further tissue loss.

I could not recommend Dr. Samadian more – AND all of his staff, at that! No longer will I mind or be afraid of going to the dentist.
It’s a completely transformative kind of practice…it was a terrific experience.
Very informative, patient and sensitive to your needs. Very focused, and desires to ensure it’s done properly the first time.
