When the goal is simply to replace a healthy zone of protective (keratinized) gum tissue without covering the exposed root, a less painful alternative offering improved esthetic results to grafting of your own tissue is a state-of-the-art cell based therapy called Gintuit™.
Cell-based Therapy to Regenerate Gum Tissue
GINTUIT™ helps periodontists generate new gum tissue for their patients without using traditional, palatal graft surgery. GINTUIT™ is a thin cellular sheet made of human fibroblasts, keratinocytes, human proteins and bovine collagen. These proteins foster rapid healing and regeneration of tissue.
