Gum Grafting for Recession in Yuma, AZ

Gum or gingival recession is the main cause for tooth sensitivity and compromised esthetics. There are several reasons why our gums may push off of the tooth or recede, but research has indicated it is primarily caused by aggressive toothbrush use. A majority of patients brush their teeth too hard! Your Yuma Dentist, Sam Carroll, DMD, can help with this dental problem.

Dr. Carroll offers a safe and effective alternative to the traditional, old-school approach to gum grafting. At other offices, they will harvest the donor tissue from the roof of the mouth, causing some of the worst pain a patient can experience.

To avoid this dental pain, Dr. Carroll uses AlloDerm, a matrix or framework of natural biological components which enables the body to create its own tissue regeneration process. Using AlloDerm is similar to using one’s own tissue except the patient will not have to experience pain related to the second surgical site, the roof of the mouth.

One of the biggest advantages of AlloDerm is that your Yuma dentist can treat multiple areas of gum recession in one sitting, thus avoiding the need for multiple surgical visits. It reduces time, discomfort, and out of pocket costs!

Contact your Yuma dentist today to schedule a consultation regarding your gum recession. Your Yuma dentist can be reached at (928) 344-1060 or use our website to contact us for more information!

I had such a wonderful experiance at this office! Switching from another local dentist was the best decision I ever made. Shanel, the hygienist, was absolutely amazing and Dr. Carroll was incredibly down to earth and attentive to any questions or concerns. The whole staff is just awesome and I can't recommend this office enough!

Dr. Carroll has state-of-the-art equipment and can do it all. I was able to get my new crown replaced on the same day with only the one visit. I've been going there for years and never had to wait past my appointment time. The office staff are all friendly, helpful, efficient, prompt, and make you feel at home and more importantly, comfortable. Dr. Carroll remembers details from prior visits and always follows up on them. A real bonus for me is that he has a way with giving the shots to numb your mouth without it hurting! I'm very grateful for the excellent care I get from Dr. Carroll and his staff.

I have had an excellent experience with Dr. Carroll over the past -I have been with him since he started practice in Yuma. He and his staff have always treated me professionally and respectfully. I say 'had' because I just moved out of state and now I hope to find a new dentist as skilled as Dr. Carroll. My last visit was a highlight for me. He gave me a brand new, much improved smile by replacing my top front six teeth with crowns made by him on site. The change is amazing and I say "thank you Dr. Carroll!"
