Painless Tissue Grafting - Alloderm
Healthy gum tissue protects your teeth from periodontal disease and sensitivity and helps produce a great smile. In the past this procedure required that a piece of tissue be retrieved from the roof of your mouth to serve as the graft material. Tissue retrieved from the patient’s palate creates a second surgical site leading to increased pain and discomfort.
Requires NO second surgical site

What is Alloderm?
Alloderm is a donated human tissue that has been processed to remove donor cells, leading to a regenerative tissue matrix.
Alloderm is widely used in both medicine and dentistry for plastic and reconstructive surgery. Since it’s introduction in 1994, over 1 million Alloderm grafts have been successfully placed with no known incidence of disease transmission.
Donor tissue is extensively screened and tested for the presence of diseases and then undergoes LifeCell’s proprietary processing procedures to ensure that Alloderm is virally inactived before release for patient care. Ask us if you are a candidate for this procedure.
