What Causes Gum recession?

Gum recession maybe caused by: thin tissue, aggressive tooth brushing, abrasive toothpaste, hereditary, moving teeth with orthodontic treatment. Gum recession may also be a sign of periodontal disease.

Keeping You Safe:

  • An alternative to taking tissue from your palate is to use a type of donor tissue from a tissue bank.
  • We ONLY utilize tissue that has passed the strictest requirements set by the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
  • The donors undergo rigorous screenings to ensure the tissue is completely sterile and is free of all living components.
  • This tissue acts as a matrix for our body to create its own tissue.
