How long does a gum graft surgery take?

Depending on how many teeth are being treated, usually 40-60 minutes.
Hello,

To answer your question, it depends on how many teeth and how many areas (quadrants) are being treated. Typically, if I treat 2 different areas, and 2 or 3 teeth per area, the total surgical time is approximately an hour. I sedate with oral conscious sedation to complete the procedure and most patients do not complain post-operatively.
I hope that helps.
Gum grafting is a great way to correct damage to the soft tissue surrounding your teeth. To determine how long a procedure will take is dependent upon many factors including the type of gum graft procedure, how many teeth are involved and where the donor tissue is coming from. Each surgeons’ particular skills will also determine the speed in which the surgery will be completed. The most experienced surgeons for this procedure is a periodontist. Discuss all these questions with your Periodontist prior to the surgery.
Depends on how many teeth or size of area where in the mouth is the graft being taken. Usually 7 to 10 days. You would have a packing on the site that would be removed. Also postop instructions will be given.
The procedure should take about 30 minutes
15 minutes to 1 hr
