Gum Recession Treatment - Austin, TX

Experienced and Skilled Care for Receding Gums

Gum Recession Threatens Oral Health

Gum recession is a common oral condition typically caused by gum disease, teeth grinding habits or bite misalignment. When gums recede, the tissues shrink away from the teeth, exposing the underlying root to the oral environment. Gum recession is a key culprit in tooth sensitivity and an aging smile. Gum recession treatment replaces lost tissue by returning the gum line to a healthier level on the teeth through autogenous tissue samples (from your own body) or other biocompatible source. At 8118 Dental Professionals, Drs. Tana Busch and Kevin Deutsch are highly skilled and experienced at reversing the effects of gum recession for Austin, TX, patients. We restore health, esthetics and appearance to the smile with the minimally invasive Allen Technique and proven connective tissue gum grafting.

A Minimally Invasive Way to Repair Receding Gums

The Allen Technique for repairing gum recession is widely recognized as a conservative approach to care. It is a minimally invasive technique designed to achieve predictable coverage of receded areas with minimal impact on the patient. To restore a healthy gum line with this method, we use AlloDerm®, a regenerative grafting material derived from safe, donated sources of cadaver tissue. AlloDerm tissue samples are applied to areas of gum recession and allowed to integrate with the gum line for a seamless appearance. With this procedure, our doctors can offer fast and efficient care, immediate cosmetic results and the treatment of multiple areas in a single visit.

Gum Grafting with Connective Tissue

Gum grafting with connective tissue is a traditional yet proven gum recession treatment that offers several benefits to Austin, TX, patients. Connective tissue grafts are harvested directly from your own mouth, beneath a flap created on the roof of the mouth. The tissue is then sutured to gum recession sites and left to blend with surrounding tissue. Using tissue from your own body reduces the chance of graft rejection and oral complications, and enhances a contiguous appearance to your smile.
