Do you have gum recession around your teeth? Does the exposure of the root of your tooth cause you pain or sensitivity? Gingival (gum) recession can be caused by many things–periodontitis, aggressive tooth brushing habits, other diseases, or even age. Often times, dentists will take tissue from the roof of your mouth and then stitch it over the area of recession. This treatment can be painful, aggressive, and often needs excessive healing time of not one, but two sites.
Stem Cell Recruitment Dental™ for gingival augmentation eliminates the need for a donor site at the roof of the mouth and utilizes Vivaderm™ to place at the area of recession. Vivaderm™ is a strong, biocompatible acellular matrix that promotes robust remodeling and reconstruction by encouraging a normal inflammatory response, neovascularization, and new tissue formation.
Vivaderm™ is processed aseptically and gamma irradiated, offering a superior level of safety while preserving mechanical and biological properties necessary to help regenerate tissue.
