Dr. Mark Honce is extremely proud of being one of the very first dentists to bring this specialized form of tissue grafting to British Columbia since 2005 (following being trained by one of the top pioneering periodontists in the US, Dr. Pat Allan). He has over five years experience placing hundreds of alloderm tissue grafts and is currently one of the foremost general dentistry providers in Canada of allograft based tissue grafting.

What can gental gum grafting do for you?

  • No sensitive tissue is harvested from the roof of your mouth!
  • Entire quadrants or arches can be easily grafted in a single surgical setting
  • Sensitive exposed roots are typically covered following treatment
  • Tissue grafted sites look completely natural and esthetic
  • New allograft connective tissue forms a protective long term barrier to future recession

How is the procedure done?

A pocket is created around the teeth that have recession, the roots of these teeth are thoroughly cleaned and chemically treated to allow new tissue attachment to occur. Then, allograft tissue or acellular dermal matrix graft (the same type of tissue medical doctors use on burn patients or orthopedic surgeons use for your knee/hip/shoulder surgery!) is slid into the pocket and sutured around the teeth that need added connective tissue support. Your own tissues are pulled up over this graft, typically completely covering all previously exposed root structure and sutured in place. There are typically no open wounds...and subsequently little if any discomfort associated with the procedure. Dr. Mark Honce almost always provides oral sedation in concert with this procedure to ensure your utmost comfort.
