A connective tissue graft, or gum graft, is performed to repair damage caused by receding gums. Gum disease is the most common reason for gums to recede. If left untreated, gum recession can lead to tooth loss due to exposure of the tooth’s root. During the procedure, healthy gum tissue is taken from another area of the mouth and attached to the exposed root to build the gum back.
