Gum grafts surgery may be performed to prevent added damage from root exposure. Your dentist in Aurora may choose to do a “connective-tissue graft, a ‘free gingivitis graft,” or a “pedicle graft.”

Any one of the procedures will involve sedation, so that your dentist in Aurora will advise that you arrange for transport home afterward. He will send a list of do’s and don’ts along with you that may restrict some activities, and limit your food choices. You can expect a full recovery in 1-2 weeks.
