Soft Tissue Grafting
Your gums may have receded for a variety of reasons, including periodontal disease or aggressive tooth brushing. You may not be in control of what caused the recession, but prior to treatment your periodontist and general dentist can help you identify the factors contributing to the problem. Once these contributing factors are controlled, a soft tissue graft procedure will repair the defect and help to prevent additional recession and bone loss.

Soft tissue grafts can be used to cover roots or develop gum tissue where absent due to excessive gingival recession. During this procedure, your periodontist takes gum tissue from your palate (the roof of your mouth) or another donor source to cover the exposed root. This can be done for one tooth or several teeth to even your gum line and reduce sensitivity.


Faster Tissue Repair
Alloderm
Most of our tissue grafts are done using a donor tissue called Alloderm which is processed from donated human skin. Using AlloDerm for tissue repair is like using your own tissue except that you will avoid a second surgical site. Also, you will further minimize any potential problems at the repair site because AlloDerm will regenerate into your own tissue.
