Restoring Gum Health

Soft tissue grafts effectively address gum recession, restoring healthy gum tissue around your teeth. This helps protect your tooth roots, reduces sensitivity, and prevents further recession, contributing to long-term oral health.

Enhancing Smile Aesthetics

Receding gums can impact the appearance of your smile, exposing tooth roots and creating an uneven gum line. Soft tissue grafts improve aesthetics by covering exposed roots and creating a balanced gum line, enhancing the overall appearance of your smile.

At Vivid Smiles & Implants, we tailor our soft tissue grafting procedures to the unique needs of each patient. Whether you need a minor graft or more extensive tissue repair, our personalized approach ensures effective and customized care, addressing your specific concerns.

Supporting Long-Term Oral Health

Soft tissue grafts offer long-term benefits for your oral health by reducing the risk of root decay, infection, and further gum recession. By restoring a healthy gum line, these grafts provide lasting protection for your teeth and improve overall oral hygiene.


What is a soft tissue graft, and when is it needed?

A soft tissue graft involves transplanting tissue to areas of the gums that are thin or receding. It is typically needed when gum recession exposes tooth roots, increasing the risk of sensitivity, decay, and further recession.

How long does it take to recover from a soft tissue graft?

Recovery time varies depending on the extent of the graft and individual healing rates. Generally, initial healing takes about two weeks, while full integration of the graft may take several months. Your dentist will provide specific post-operative care instructions.

Is a soft tissue graft painful?

The soft tissue grafting procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring you do not feel pain during the surgery. Some discomfort may be experienced during recovery, but it can be managed with prescribed pain relievers and proper aftercare.

How is the tissue for grafts obtained?

Tissue for grafts can come from several sources, including the patient’s own tissue (autograft), donor tissue (allograft), or synthetic materials. The choice of material depends on the patient’s specific needs and the type of graft required.

How do I care for my gums after a soft tissue graft?

Caring for your gums after a soft tissue graft involves following your dentist’s post-operative instructions, which may include avoiding certain foods, using prescribed rinses, and being gentle while brushing and flossing. Regular dental check-ups are also important for monitoring healing.


Doctor Richardson is just the best! I had just traveled 13hrs in a car with a toothache. When I got home, I called his after hours line not expecting too much. He answered and met me at his office. He gave me a new crown while I waited! Amazing. I feel better. I would recommend him to anyone.
Very friendly and kind, very knowledgeable and speedy. Went in for a tooth extraction and was in and out in under an hour. Definitely recommend. The whole team did their work very swiftly and well organized.
Amazing staff, extremely friendly!!! A++ all the way around! I’ve never been a fan of going to the dentist, in fact I down right hated it! As soon as I walked in the door, the 2 lovely ladies at the front desk were super sweet and welcoming. Went through paper work quick and they got me back even quicker! As soon as I got back they were very nice and informative, both the dentist and assistant listened to me and my concerns. Did X-rays and found that I did not need a root canal as a previous dentist had tried to tell me. They were able to do the extractions and My mouth feels amazing even the day after! Extracted two teeth from my head and I still love em! Found my new dentist!!!!
Great office and staff. All four of our family members have seen Dr. Richardson now. We are long time patients of Dr. Utberg and the change has been seamless. My husband broke a tooth on a weekend and was called back after hours immediately and scheduled Monday morning to get it fixed. Very thorough with some updated procedures. Personal service like we have always had and honest, thoughtful care. Highly recommend!!!
My family have been patients at this dentist for five years, and my experience has consistently been top-notch. The staff is friendly and professional, creating a welcoming atmosphere. The dentist is thorough in explaining procedures, ensuring I'm comfortable throughout. The office is well-maintained, and appointments are efficiently managed. They are even great with my young boys! Highly recommend.
