Gingival Grafts
in San Francisco

service-gums.jpg

Dr. Skorupko performs gingival or gum grafts to protect his patients from the effects of gum recession, when the tissues around teeth begin to pull away—or recede—from the tooth. Gum recession, if not taken care of, can cause damage to the bone structure and even result in tooth loss. In some cases, Dr. Skorupko uses the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique technique to reposition gum tissue, avoiding the need for removing tissue grafts from the roof of the mouth.
