Gum Diseases

Gum graphing procedures available

12/27/2007

Question:

I will need Gum Graphing done soon. I was told by my dentist about an alternative procedure using cadaver tissue but am unable to find any information about it online. The Dr. my dentist referred me to can not see me for months, which isn`t really a problem, but I`d like more information about this less painful procedure so I can be better informed about its risks & benefits. Have you heard about this procedure?

Answer:

The product name is Alloderm.  Hope that this will help you with your web search.
