Atlanta Root Covering Tissue Graft

Gum tissue grafting is a recommended treatment for patients who have unusual tissue thinning or loss that can expose sensitive tooth material that is typically protected by gum tissue.

For small treatment areas gum tissue can be harvested from the patient. a Gum Tissue Harvesting procedure is demonstated in this video, showing how tissue is gently removed from the roof of the mouth.

Graft membranes, such as Alloderm, are a popular alternative when larger areas needed to be grafted.
