Gum grafting treatment at AVOS Dental Specialists
Gum grafting is a crucial procedure required in cases of insufficient healthy gum tissue surrounding teeth or when teeth experience recession. At AVOS, we offer a variety of gum grafting procedures to suit individual needs:
- Connective Tissue Graft: This method involves harvesting a small piece of soft tissue from the palate and grafting it in front of the affected teeth to restore gum tissue.
- Free Gingival Soft Tissue Graft: Similar to connective tissue grafting, this technique also utilizes tissue from the palate to cover the affected areas and promote gum tissue growth.
- Alloderm Soft Tissue Grafting: This approach eliminates the need for a donor site as it utilizes specially processed grafting material to achieve the desired results.
The choice of grafting method depends on the unique clinical scenario and the patient’s preferences, should they have any specific requests regarding donor sites.
Patients may experience mild gum soreness during recovery, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. Full gingival health and recovery typically occur within 3-6 months, ensuring excellent and lasting outcomes for our patients.
LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure)
LANAP is often incorporated as part of gum grafting treatments. It’s particularly suitable for patients who are dealing with periodontal disease. Its benefits include:
- No cutting of the gums or sutures
- Reducing bacterial load
- Promoting soft tissue attachment regeneration
At AVOS Dental Specialists, we ensure that our patients receive the most advanced and efficient treatments available. That’s why we utilize the cutting-edge PerioLase® MVP-7 laser for precise and effective results.
