Root Covering Gum Tissue Graft



Gum grafting is the treatment of choice for tooth structures that are losing coverage on the roots. Patients who are free of active disease and are candidates for simple or complex grafting can often choose different types of tissue products for grafting.

In this live surgery demonstration, Alloderm, a popular grafting product, was passed over in favor of patient dontated tissue which customarily provides a superb healing event. A small amount of tissue is harvested from the patient's palate.

Dr. Schweinebraten uses laser technologies are as needed to assure the highest degree of patient comfort during this invasive perio surgery.
