Several teeth show severe recession that was unsightly for the patient and likely to increase with time. One month after tissue grafting with Alloderm and platelet rich plasma ( for more rapid healing, the tissue looks wonderful and stable. The patient experienced mild soreness lasting a few days.
Gum recession can be comfortably treated using dehydrated tissue from a package instead of from the person's own palate; often quite painful. This has improved both the patient experience and the extent of grafting we can do. In this case both the left upper and lower teeth were treated in one appointment. A very happy patient.
