AlloDerm® is a soft tissue gum grafting material that delivers very predictable results. It is an attractive alternative to using a patient’s own tissue for a gum graft because there is no additional surgery involved and the donated human tissue functions just like the patient’s own tissue. It is now widely used in the field of dentistry.
AlloDerm® Gum Grafting in Elyria or Westlake, OH
Patients with periodontal disease may have receding gums that affect the quality of their smile and increase tooth sensitivity.

AlloDerm® is a regenerative tissue derived from a human donor and can be used for root coverage and soft tissue grafting procedures such as soft tissue augmentation and bone graft containment.
