If you visit Periodontal and Implant Esthetics for gum recession treatment, our periodontist can offer you several options, depending on your periodontal condition and needs. Dr. Gustavo Ruiz provides a variety of gum grafting procedures, including soft tissue allografts.

Soft tissue allografting is the gum augmentation and treatment of gum recession utilizing collagen membranes to cover exposed tooth roots. A soft tissue allograft does not require tissue to be surgically collected from the roof of the patient’s mouth to provide grafting material. Instead, tissue for the graft is provided by high-quality tissue banking resources, which means there is no need for a second surgical site. Healing time for this procedure is cut in half, though the results look similar to gum grafts performed with the patient’s own tissue.

Dr. Gustavo Ruiz may need to performs a grafting procedure if you have:

  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Exposed tooth roots
  • Loose teeth as a result of gum recession

We encourage you to visit Periodontal and Implant Esthetics soon if you have noticed signs of gum recession and may need a soft tissue allograft in Tampa, Florida.
