Soft tissue grafting is usually performed to fight with gum recession. The patients can experience gum recession as a result of periodontal disease, trauma, aging, or aggressive tooth brushing. The patients with gum recession may experience increased sensitivity to hot and cold. Also, the decay becomes more prevalent in this condition.

To fight with gum recession, soft tissue grafts are used to either cover the exposed roots or develop gum tissue. By using soft tissue grafts the risk for further recession and bone loss, decay, and sensitivity is decreased.

The patients with the following symptoms can be the candidates for soft tissue grafting:

• Gum recession

• Tooth decay

• Family history of gum recession

•Root sensitivity

I travelled all the way from US by myself to come here and get rhinoplasty done, my surgery was a week ago by Dr Hasan duygulu he is extremely professional and excellent at his job. My whole stay was made very easy and comforting by Kate, Sultan and Enes. I have been coordinating with Kate this whole time from the start till the end. She has been amazing throughout and ensuring. They all were there for me when i needed them and even after. It was a great decision for me and i m totally proud of myself that i was able to find the best and proceeded with it. I thank everyone part of luna clinic and the hospital for your kind and loving hospitality. I will recommend coming to Dr Hasan to everyone and anyone without any hesitation

I would highly recommend Flymedi and Abud

I would highly recommend Flymedi. My mom had a gastric balloon fitted at the Luna clinic and everything went smoothly. When I was looking for a clinic in Turkey I found Flymedi as medical tourism, I contacted them by email and they got back to me in a short time. I was assigned Abud as health coordinator and I don’t have enough words to thank him. He’s professional but on top of that he loves what he’s doing and he does really care. As I said before I don’t have enough words to thank Abud and Flymedi and I’m so happy I made the right decision by choosing them. If you want to have the bed experience choose Flymedi and you won’t regret it.

Rhinoplasty 12 days ago- Luna Clinic- Dr. Hasan Duygulu

I had my rhinoplasty done exactly 12 days ago with doctor Hasan Duygulu. Before flying to Istanbul, I was very scared of doing this somewhere far from home but , from the first day of our arrival I knew I chose the right clinic; we met Sultan at the gate of the hospital, she was extremely nice and accommodating and organised, she comforted and still comforting me with answering every question and concerns possible and was with me through the whole before, during and after process which I am still experiencing btw. At the day of the surgery we met doctor Hasan, he is very nice and professional, I told him what I wanted and he took pictures of my face and showed me what my nose could approximately look like after the surgery and addressed my concerns and questions which were a lot btw :) he came to visit me right after I woke up and the next morning as well. The hospital was very luxurious and the nurses were very nice and all our needs were met perfectly, everything was super organised and easy. Today I removed my cast and I am very happy with the results as early as it is with the swelling I am very satisfied and I cant wait to see the final results which seem to be very close to the pictures he showed me. Thank you Luna clinic and especially Sultan for making this life changing decisions the best decision I made. The whole experience was easy, trusted and comfortable thanks to you

I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi.

If you are thinking about surgery in Turkey, I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi. Abud was my contact and is there for you 24/7. He was quick to respond and did his very best to answer every question and keep me calm in what can be, a new and scary experience. I would highly recommend and you can be sure you are lucky if he is your contact. The hospital was very clean and staff were very professional and kind. The doctor did an amazing job and I am thrilled!!

Totally recommend

The whole process went really smooth from the beginning, it was really easy to communicate with them. I had my mommy makeover done in June, 2021 and the only thing I regretted is putting off my surgery for some years because I did not want to travel abroad, but in the end it was all worth it. The prices are much lower and I was happy with my surgeon (Prof. Omer), he is such a friendly person and an amazing surgeon as well. I love my results and I've never felt so confident in my body, even before the pregnancy. I can recommend Flymedi and my surgeon in particular.

Not Recommended For Soft Tissue Grafts

If you are suffering from gum recession, your doctors would make a treatment plan according to your needs and choose the best treatment of soft tissue grafts.

Preparation

There is no detailed preparation needed before soft tissue grafts. There is no specific diet to follow nor need for fasting. However, the patient should arrange transportation since it would be difficult to drive with discomfort caused by the procedure.

How It Is Performed

Soft tissue grafts have three common types that include:

• Free gingival graft: This procedure is usually performed for thickening the present tissue. During this practice, a piece of tissue is taken from the palate and stitched to the grafting spot to help natural growth.

• Pedicle graft: In this technique, the existing local gum tissue is moved to the graft site where the gum recession is. This method is very successful since it does not cause to cut off blood flow in the mouth.

• Connective tissue graft: This type of graft is the most common one. While performing this procedure, the doctor removes a part of connective tissue from a small flap in the mouth and stitch up to the graft site.

Recovery

After the procedure, the recovery period of soft tissue grafting would take about six weeks in total. During the first couple of weeks of the recovery period, the patient should eat soft, cold foods that would not damage or irritate the graft. In order to prevent infections, your doctor might recommend you using an antimicrobial mouthwash for a few weeks. Also, it is possible to experience some amounts of pain after the procedure but with pain medications, it can be managed.

Risks

There are several complications related to soft tissue graft, but these are very rare. Infections after the soft tissue graft are very uncommon. However, if you notice any bleeding from your graft site you should contact your doctor.

Success Rates

Even though it is very rare, sometimes the procedure might be performed again when the graft tissue does not adapt to the graft site appropriately. However, this is very uncommon; usually soft tissue grafts give good results. 

Before And After

After the recovery process, the patients would notice positive changes in their life such as decreased sensitivity to hot and cold foods/drinks, increased comfort and an improved smile which also affects the patient’s self-confidence as well.

Faq

-Why do I have gum recession?

Gum recession can be caused by different factors involving a periodontal (gum) disease, poor dental care or aggressive tooth brushing.

-Why do I need a soft tissue graft?

As a result of gum recession, the patient might be experiencing pain and discomfort. With soft tissue graft, the patient would no longer experience pain and sensitivity.
