I Feel Fabulous Now That I Can Smile Again After My Gum Recession Treatment

A toothy smile caused by gum recession is often treated by extracting soft tissue from the roof of your mouth.  Using AlloDerm® Regenerative Tissue Matrix, however, this procedure is not necessary. AlloDerm’s high success rate and predictable outcomes allow us to effectively restore your smile without additional surgical procedures.

Connective Tissue Graft

Functional Soft Tissue Grafting

Normally gum tissue surrounds and protects the delicate roots of your teeth. Exposed tooth roots are prone to tooth decay, root canals, discoloration and actual jawbone loss. All of this can lead to tooth loss in advanced cases.

Functional Soft Tissue Grafting replaces the missing gum tissue and protects your teeth. For this reason, Soft Tissue Grafting may be recommended even for back teeth.

Cosmetic Soft Tissue Grafting

In addition to the functional problems previously mentioned, receding gums can look unsightly.

Longer looking teeth and exposed tooth roots give an "old" appearance to your smile. Some people cover their mouths when they smile for this very reason.

Cosmetic Soft Tissue Grafting can add a new youthful appearance to your smile. In your initial consultation with Dr. Carter, he will thoroughly explain what can be achieved in your particular case.
