There are several options when it comes to restoring the gumline:

AlloDerm® RTM

This method has been around since 1994 and has enjoyed millions of successes since its inception.

AlloDerm® RTM (Regenerative Tissue Matrix) is used to regenerate tissue without the need for harvesting tissue from the roof of the mouth. This method involves the use of donated tissue that has been sterilized to be readied for use in a process that converts the donated tissue into a neutral material that is readily accepted by the recipient.

Harvested tissue therapy

Another way we can correct a receding gum line is to harvest tissue from the top of the mouth. This tissue is then grafted onto the affected area. This method has a very high success rate.

Benefits of gum grafts

Gum grafts can restore your smile, remove or reduce sensitivity to hot and cold, and just all around make you feel better, less self-conscious, and ready to move on with your life.

They also have the benefit of blocking off access to your roots which may open the door to infection.
