Tissue Grafts NYC

Gum Grafts / Oral Tissue Grafts

Gum grafts are procedures that use tiny portions of your own gum tissue or tissue from a tissue bank (allografts) to supplement your existing gum tissue in areas where the gums have begun to recede and the tooth or multiple teeth appear long. A low gum line can potentially expose the lower portions of teeth and tooth roots to disease. During gum graft procedures, small samples of gum tissue from a tissue bank or taken from elsewhere in your own mouth are implanted near the bases of teeth that don’t have enough gum tissue. Over time, the tissue will fuse with the existing gum tissue to help protect teeth.

Benefits Of The Soft Tissue Graft Procedure

By having tissue graft done several benefits will be achieved:

  • Gum recession eliminated
  • Sensitivity caused by exposed root surface no longer present
  • By covering exposed roots, we protect them from decay
  • The tooth no longer looks long, thus improving the esthetics of your smile


“I found Dr. Wang through Yelp and I’m glad I did. My dentist had suggested getting a gum graft for my receding gum line as a preventative measure.

I started with a consultation with Dr. Wang where he presented options and was informative about the procedure. He has a great bedside manner and will always greet you with a smile.  Zorica handled the insurance claim and made it easy to setup an appointment.

I was very anxious about the surgery but Dr. Wang put me at ease. During the procedure I could not feel a thing thanks to the local anesthetic. I listened to a podcast to pass the short time.

Dr. Wang provided after treatment instructions and had all the medications I required sent to my pharmacy. The night of the surgery when I had a question I called Dr. Wang and he was available to address it.

I’ve had to two follow up appointments and am happy with the results. Go see Dr. Wang for any periodontal needs and you won’t regret it.”

This is the first dental practice I look forward to going to. The front desk staff, hygienists and dentists are some of the friendliest and best in Manhattan. I always look forward to my teeth cleanings and if I need work done, I know I'm in great care. Also, Dr. Ahh did my Invisalign and I've never been more proud to smile!
