An alternative technique to traditional tissue grafts that require the
surgical removal of tissue from the roof of the mouth (palate).
Geistlich Mucograft® and Geistlich Fibro-Gide® are biomaterials that have been specifically designed for soft tissue regeneration and are utilized to regenerate receding gums or increasing gum tissue thickness around teeth or dental implants. When using these materials there is no need to surgically remove tissue from the palate which results in less pain, faster recovery time and less surgical procedure time. Good healing and superior esthetics are also benefits of these materials.
The Importance of Healthy Gum Tissue
Gums provide a barrier to bacteria and support the underlying bone. If left untreated it can lead to poor oral hygiene, inflammation and severe bone and gum tissue loss.
