Gum Tissue Grafting and Regrowth
- Gum Tissue Harvesting - Receding Gum Surgery
Gum grafting is the treatment of choice for tooth structures that are losing coverage on the roots. Patients who are free of active disease and are candidates for simple or complex grafting can often choose different types of tissue products for grafting.
In this live surgery demonstration, Alloderm, a popular grafting product, was passed over in favor of patient dontated tissue which customarily provides a superb healing event. A small amount of tissue is harvested from the patient's palate. Laser technologies are as needed to assure the highest degree of patient comfort during this invasive perio surgery.

- Gum Recession Repair
Another example of using gingival tissue harvested from a patient's palate to perform a neat singular repair of a compromised area of gum tissue on a single anterior tooth in the mandible.
Proactive tissue repair typically overcomes the complications of increased sensitivity and eliminates the damage that can occur to the tooth structure when areas of the tooth that have little or no protective enamel are exposed.
Full adaptation of laser technology for gum tissue therapies, repair and augmentation deliver a level of comfort that significantly minimizes, if not eliminates the need for anesthetic medications. Material provided by Dr. Marie Schweinebraten of Duluth GA
- Sinus Lift Surgery
Edited for graphic content and time constraints, this media segment outlines the process and procedures for performing a Sinus Lift surgery. See actual surgery sequences involved for performing sinus lift surgery that is accompanied by the insertion of bone grafting material as needed to fortify a dental implant site.
