Healthy gum tissue protects your teeth from periodontal disease and sensitivity while giving you a great smile. Routine dental checkups along with proper brushing are essential for maintaining healthy gums but some patients may require treatment.
Gum recession is sometimes treated by retrieving soft tissue from the roof (palate) of your mouth. However, removing a section of your palate creates pain and discomfort that may not be necessary.
AlloDerm® RTM allows us to restore your smile without retrieving tissue from the palate. AlloDerm® RTM can provide a natural outcome and is an alternative to using your own tissue.
AlloDerm® RTM is donated tissue that has been processed to remove cells creating a regenerative tissue matrix. Its success in soft-tissue treatments is documented by more than 10 years of dental applications and research.
AlloDerm® RTM is widely used in the medical and dental fields for plastic and reconstructive surgery.
Since its introduction in 1994, more than 1 million AlloDerm® RTM grafts have been successfully placed in various applications.
Donor tissue is extensively screened and tested and then undergoes proprietary processing to ensure that AlloDerm® RTM is ready for use in patients.
Only a trained clinician can determine the best treatment plan. Please ask to explain the benefits and risks to see if AlloDerm® RTM is right for you. Patient results may vary.
