A gingival graft (commonly called a gum graft or periodontal surgery) refers to a numbers of surgical procedures that can be performed to cover exposed roots caused by receding gums. This is typically performed by taking tissue from the roof of the mouth and attaching it to the gum line. Pedicle grafts can also be performed, which involves cutting away the gum around the tooth being treated, then pulling the gum back down to cover the exposed root and sewing it into place.
