Allogenic gingival transplant (Alloderma)
The principle of allogeneic gingival transplantation is similar to that of connective tissue transplantation; in both cases, it involves covering an exposed root. The major difference between these two types of transplants is that, in the case of allogeneic transplantation, the graft is not removed from the patient’s palate.
Allogenic gingival transplantation involves using a graft transformed from human tissue that has been processed, sterilized and tested to remove all cells and retain only a collagen regenerative matrix. Originally, this type of graft was designed to treat people with burns.
