Covering Areas of Gum Recession around Teeth Roots
- Building contour of Gums
Augmenting Gums around Dental Implants and Missing Teeth
The Gums are numbed with Local Anaesthetic, the Gums are lifted around the teeth in a micro-surgical technique and the alloderm graft is placed underneathe the gums and sutures are placed. You will need to avoid brushing the area for two weeks, but instead using mouthwash and following a strict soft diet in the area.
The Alloderm graft tissue creates a scaffold for your connective tissue to grow through and helps stabilise the gums to grow back to their proper thickness and height, giving the gums that extra protection around teeth.
Oral Hygeine and the cause of the gum recession needs to be treated to provide long-term stable results, and this often means lighter toothbrushing, adjusting your bite and appropriate mouthwashes.
