Why You Should Treat Gum Recession
Tooth sensitivity from gum recession is a result of exposed tooth roots, which are normally covered by the gums to protect them from harmful bacteria. The roots are not designed to be above the gum line, so when the gums recede it puts the health of the teeth and mouth at risk. To protect the teeth and restore the health of the smile, Dr. Steven Van Scoyoc offers AlloDerm® Gum Grafts.Schedule Your Consultation
What is an AlloDerm® Gum Graft?
AlloDerm gum grafts are a gum recession treatment option that use a Regenerative Tissue Matrix (RTM) that eliminates the need of palatal tissue removal associated with traditional gum grafting. This new tissue is carefully placed in areas where little to no gum tissue exists. This makes the procedure safer and more comfortable for the patient during the healing process. Without the need for tissue removal, many patients who choose this treatment find the procedure and recovery comfortable. However, Dr. Van Scoyoc offers sedation dentistry for patients who experience dental anxiety.
