Subepithelial Connective Tissue Grafts- My practice performs a current technique for treating gum recession which does not require taking tissue from the patient's palate and avoids creating needless surgical trauma and discomfort to an uninvolved area. I utilize a material called Alloderm, an acellular dermal matrix tissue. Alloderm works the same as the patient’s own tissue, is as safe, and much more convenient. Advantages to using Alloderm include only one surgical site with faster recovery and more comfortable healing, larger or multiple areas can be treated in a single procedure, and more natural looking results. Note-The amount of root coverage is determined on a case by case basis.

"Although CT and ADM have a slightly different histological appearance, both can successfully be used to cover denuded roots with similar attachments and no adverse healing."

Supportive Periodontal Therapy ( SPT ) or Periodontal Maintenance:

SPT or Periodontal Maintenance is started after completion of active periodontal therapy and continues at varying intervals for the life of the dentition.
