Gum grafting near you: say goodbye to receding gums and hello to a healthy, confident smile.

If you’ve noticed your gums shrinking, exposing sensitive tooth roots, you’re not alone. This common issue, known as gum recession, weakens teeth and can impact both your smile’s aesthetics and oral health. Fortunately, Alloderm-based tissue grafting is a minimally invasive and substantially more comfortable solution to treat recession than traditional methods.

Understanding gum recession: more than just aesthetics
When gum tissue shrinks away from your teeth, it exposes the sensitive root surface. This can lead to:

  • Increased tooth sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Pain when brushing or flossing your teeth
  • Loose teeth and potential tooth loss
  • An unattractive gum line and exposed roots

Gum grafting addresses these concerns by adding new connective tissue to your gums. This strengthens teeth, covers sensitive roots, and improves the overall appearance of your smile.

Alloderm-based tissue grafting: minimally invasive and maximally effective Traditional grafting methods can be traumatic and painful as they involve harvesting tissue from a patient’s palate. This is why we offer Alloderm-based tissue grafting, which restores your smile without painful procedures. This biomaterial, both effective and safe, offers numerous benefits, making it the top choice for optimal gum health restoration. Benefits include:

  • Reduced sensitivity: No more wincing at hot or cold drinks—Alloderm minimizes root exposure, leading to increased comfort.
  • Improved appearance: Say goodbye to gum recession and exposed roots. The graft restores a natural gum line for a beautiful, easy smile.
  • Prevents further recession: Alloderm acts as a barrier, protecting your teeth and gums from future damage.
  • Faster healing: Compared to traditional methods, Alloderm typically heals faster and with less discomfort.

Your journey to a renewed smile
Your journey begins with a thorough consultation, where we assess your gum health and personalize a treatment plan. The actual procedure involves:

  • Comfort comes first: You’ll receive local anesthesia for a painless experience.
  • Preparation and cleaning: The treatment area is cleaned and sterilized to ensure optimal results.
  • Gentle placement: The Alloderm graft is carefully positioned over the affected area to cover the exposed root or to add gum tissue.
  • Stabilization and healing: Special sutures secure the graft in place to promote tissue stability and proper healing.

Post-care and follow-up
To ensure a smooth recovery process following gum grafting surgery, you’ll receive detailed post-care instructions. This includes proper oral hygiene practices, dietary recommendations, and information for pain management and potential post-operative complications.
