Composite Fillings Needs to be Remove for Gum Graft

Q. My periodontist said Composite Fillings Needs to be Remove for Gum Graft?
A. Your periodontist is right.Gum grafts do not attach to White fillings. So it will need to be removed from the portion of the tooth that graft is going to cover. Otherwise, the gap between the gum graft and the filling will become a pocket. Composite filling could be extended or replaced after gum grafting if needed.
