Enhance your smile while minimizing tooth sensitivity
Healthy gum tissue protects your teeth from periodontal disease and sensitivity while giving you a great smile. Routine dental check-ups along with proper brushing are essential for maintaining healthy gums; however 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 unnecessary pain and discomfort.
AlioDerm® Regenerative Tissue Matrix (RTM)
AlioDerm® RTM allows your clinician to restore your smile without retrieving tissue from the palate. AlloDerm® RTM can provide a natural esthetic outcome and an excellent alternative to using your own tissue.
Why Treat Gum Recession?
Aggressive tooth brushing and periodontal disease are two primary causes for recession; which can lead to the following:
- Unattractive smile
- Root sensitivity
- Loss of supporting bone
- Tooth decay
- Plaque build-up
- Risk of future recession
