Soft tissue healing generally takes 4-8 weeks. Healing time varies on how much tissue was taken from the donor site and whether you have any bone exposure after the procedure.
Often the tissue is harvested from another area of your mouth (donor site), most frequently the roof of the mouth. It is then transplanted over the area of missing gum tissue (recipient site). The donor site usually within 7-10 days. Sometimes it is possible to use processed skin and other tissue products as the donor tissue.
