Study Summary

To correct gum recession, patient's own tissue from the roof of the mouth is harvested and placed where there is root exposed. This is considered gold standard of treatment. Sometimes patient don't want to have second surgical site in their mouth and at the same time do not want to use alternative tissue from human or animal donor. Using patients' blood and preparing it as a membrane is the next best thing to correct gum recession.
