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.
