Gum Rejuvenation from Abadin Dental
Gum recession refers to the loss of gum tissue along the gumline. This can occur as a result of periodontal disease (gingivitis, periodontitis, advanced periodontitis), the natural aging process, or abrasive habits when it comes to brushing the teeth. Gum recession often results in root sensitivity to hot and cold foods as well as an unsightly appearance to the gum and tooth.
When gum recession occurs, the root structure of the tooth becomes exposed. This means that tooth decay and other problems can affect the teeth along the gumline and beneath it. Since healthy gums are essential for a healthy mouth, getting gum recession treated is important for lasting dental wellness.
In the past, a piece of tissue was taken from the roof of the mouth and attached to the prepared area of gum recession. After a healing period, the graft becomes part of the gum and covers the area where it had receded previously.

New research and technology has made available materials designed to add natural gum tissue without the need to take tissue from other areas of the mouth. Acellular dermal grafts activated with PGRF, are a bio compatible type of donor material, which is a substitute for using your own tissue as a donor for the graft thus eliminating the need for a second surgical site such as the roof of the mouth.
Plasma Rich Growth Factors, PRGF, is a revolutionary bone and soft tissue regeneration technique we use that not only yields better results, but also reduces the discomfort associated with surgery due to improved and faster healing.
These procedures are a predictable way to cover unsightly, sensitive or exposed root surfaces to prevent future gum recession.
