Soft tissue grafting procedures (gum grafts) are used to treat a number of dental conditions and deficiencies in gum tissues, including gum recession.  Traditional methods rely on transplanting a patient's own tissue from a different area of the mouth.  Though effective, patients have reported significant discomfort following the procedure
