The gum tissue had begun to recede from this upper central incisor. This patient complained about sensitivity and not happy unevenness of the gum when smiling.
Connective tissue grafting was done and this tissue grafting restored the gum line to its normal level. The procedure has improved her smile dramatically. Connective tissue grafting is a microsurgery with a very comfortable postoperative experience.
This patient was concerned about her gum tissue recession. She already had first gum tissue grafted by other periodontist. But the result was not as successful as she expected. She was concerned about the teeth sensitivity and gum line root decay.
AlloDerm soft-tissue grafting achieved proper root coverage and built more tissue resistance to any offending element such as harsh tooth brushing or any masticating trauma. Also this type of tissue grafting is so resistant that the gum line would not recede anymore.
