Cosmetic Dentistry: Q&AAsk a Question
Gum Graft on Cavity
Is it possible to perform a gum graft on a cavity (the cavity is not caused by carious, but due to trauma)? Would the gum attach? Or is it mandatory to drill, and fill the cavity with a composite, and then perform the gum graft? (The cavity can't be seen on the x-ray as it is just superficial, chipped enamel.)
