What is involved in oral skin grafting?


Answer by  addicted (186)

You will have some pain after the procedure but hopefully the meds will take care of it. Obviously the grafted skin will feel a little funny and turn white and discolor, but hopefully will settle soon. It's not as bad as some people say it is!

People do it for receding gums, but I heard it's really not that effective. Get a second and a third opinion before you plunge into getyting an oral skin graft done.

It left my buddy with a funny taste and feel in his mouth forever - he is actually planning to get it off and bear his gums. Less pain but more ugly!  add a comment

They do the oral skin graft thingy for receding gums. Basically involves taking a healthy patch of skin from a hairless part of you and grafting it on to the area in your mouth that needs 2 B covered! Simple, eh!!
