When gum tissue pulls away or recedes from the tooth a tissue graft may be placed to cover
root surfaces and prolong the life of the teeth. Recession can be a result of aggressive
tooth brushing, orthodontics, grinding of teeth or genetics. In this surgical procedure a
small amount of tissue is taken from the palate and grafted to cover the exposed root.
