A gum graft is when we take tissue from another part of your mouth, and we place it over an area that the gum has receded.

Some people brush too hard. Some people's bite is bad.

Sometimes it's trauma.

So if somebody has sensitivity because their gum has receded, we can graft that. So long term, it's better for your mouth if your gum stays in place than when it doesn't.
