Treat Gum Recession with a Connective Tissue Graft

Connective tissue grafting is a procedure designed to treat areas where significant recession of gum tissue has occurred, exposing the root surfaces of the involved teeth. Recession can cause many problems, including an esthetically compromised smile and increased sensitivity and discomfort. It can also lead to problems such as root decay. Connective tissue grafting covers the area of recession with your own gum tissue. It is highly successful and provides excellent esthetic results. Alloderm® Grafting has the same goal as connective tissue grafting — to treat areas of recessed gum tissue. The difference is that instead of using the patient’s own tissue for grafting, we use an alternative known as Alloderm that also provides excellent results.
