Gum recession is an embarrassing problem that can affect the way you feel about your smile. Dr. DiGiallorenzo and his team at the LANAP and Implant Center in Collegeville and Williamsport, PA will help you feel more confident in your smile by determining the cause of your gum recession and providing ways to bring the problem under control. Soft tissue grafting is one way to reverse the damage and stop further recession that can eventually lead to bone loss.

What are the benefits of soft tissue or gum grafting?

Soft tissue or gum grafting offers a number of benefits for your oral health and overall self-confidence. Our gum grafting procedures can help:

We may need to perform soft tissue grafting before performing your dental implant placement procedure. Because the gums act as a foundation for securing your teeth, they need to be able to help stabilize your dental implants.

Why is covering exposed roots important?

Our team can perform soft tissue / gum grafting at our Philadelphia area periodontal offices to cover one exposed root or several, even out your gumline for a more pleasing look, and reduce sensitivity.

PRGF and Donor-less Tissue Improve the Gum Grafting Experience

Your gum grafting procedure will be very quick and much more comfortable than what you would find in a traditional dental office. We use donor-less tissue rather than harvesting tissue from the roof of your mouth. Once the tissue is in place over your roots, we will apply plasma rich in growth factors (PRGF) to the site. This plasma is collected from your own blood sample through a detailed process that concentrates the PRGF to be used in medical applications. Though hospitals have been doing this for years to help improve outcomes for patients, PRGF in the dental office is a brand-new procedure. You will only find it in top, specialized dental offices!
