What Is Gum Grafting?

Gum grafting is a common dental procedure that aims to replace damaged or lost gum tissue in the mouth. Gum grafting can be performed for both cosmetic reasons and to promote oral health. Gum tissue offers protection to the teeth by covering them and protecting them from harmful acids. Gum tissue is usually lost due to gum recession. Gum recession describes gum tissue that has shrunk away from teeth or receded away from the teeth. Gum recession can be caused by aggressive toothbrushing, biting hard objects such as pen caps or toothpicks, smoking, genetics, and periodontal gum disease. Replacing lost or damaged gum tissue through gum grafting helps to restore oral health and improve the appearance of your smile.

Gum Grafting Using AlloDerm

Dentistry on 88 uses AlloDerm Regenerative Tissue Matrix to replace lost gum tissue instead of using the patient’s tissue. Taking tissue from the patient’s mouth results in pain and lengthy healing times. However, by using AlloDerm grafting material, patients can avoid pain and healing associated with tissue removal.

AlloDerm Regenerative Tissue Matrix is donated tissue that has been modified to remove specific cells. The modified regenerative tissue matrix is then surgically placed in affected areas to help promote new growth of gum tissue. AlloDerm has been successfully used for over ten years in many dental procedures safely and effectively.
