Why Do I Need an Allograft Surgery?
As mentioned above, the tradition procedure of gum grafting is tremendously effective; it can cause extreme pain for the patient in the coming days. While the procedure itself is painless as the patient is under a local anesthetic or even an IV sedation, once these wear off- the patients typically report having lots of pain.
If you have a case of gum recession due to periodontitis, hard tooth brushing, or other cases, a gum graft surgery may be needed. This treatment and material allow the management of gum recession to be controlled at a faster and easier pace. Gum recession can be rejuvenated using this material and more. A smile transformation can be done with this material alone.
At Stoner Periodontic Specialists, we aim for your comfort during the procedures as well as try and provide helpful tips and feedback to help with pain after the procedure. We have found an excellent way to avoid using the traditional method to ensure the comfort of our patients even after surgery. At the end of the day, this treatment option is much less invasive and can boast an easier and more painless healing time.
Using palatal donor tissue has made soft tissue grafting a much less invasive procedure. This same procedure can be used to treat gum recession, gum defects, and even soft tissue alveolar ridge defects. Using palatal donor tissue was introduced to the dental industry nearly 40 years ago. This treatment has been linked to many other advances in the dental industry.
The attachment of this Allograft material is easier and less invasive to surgically adhere to the gums. Microsurgery is used that allows the periodontists more precise incisions to reduce swelling, bleeding, and trauma. Allograft surgery can also be used as a placeholder in extraction sites. A block of substitute bone can be shaped to fit into a newly extracted tooth socket to hold the space shape for future implants. This treatment is also known as tooth socket preservation.
It is extremely useful to use this material when undergoing a bone graft surgery. This material is chalk full of the needed nutrients that can assist the patient with a faster healing time. The material is full of bone growth factors, necessary bioactive material, proteins and much more. As mentioned above, there are synthetic replacement options that also have nutrients of an organic and mineral mix. Both of these options are great for our patients here at Stone Periodontic Specialists.
