Study: Bovine pericardium based non-cross linked collagen matrix for successful root coverage
from The Wall Street Journal
Scientists have developed a novel technique to repair receding gums that uses a specially treated animal membrane to jump-start the growth of new gum tissue over exposed dental roots, according to a small study published in Head & Face Medicine. Gum recession is common as people age and can lead to decayed and hypersensitive roots. Treatment traditionally involves grafting a flap of skin from the roof of the mouth to the gum around exposed roots.
