There are many reasons for patients to have gum recession. Having a thin biotype (thin gum tissue that covers the root areas of the teeth) is one of the main causes of gum recession. Thin gums can be treated with a gum graft that does not involve the palate. AlloDerm® is a grafting material to treat receding gum lines and has been used in the dental and medical fields for years. AlloDerm® allows the surgeon to mold and contour the graft to achieve a natural aesthetic result.
The use of AlloDerm® in treating thin and receding gum lines results in a smooth surface with excellent root coverage, and converts the thin gums to more normal gums.
