There are many consequences to gum disease, including serious complications that affect your oral and general health. While not all of these issues affect your appearance, some can have a negative impact on your smile. Gum line recession is often associated with poor periodontal health. Unfortunately, even if your tissues recede due to another issue, this change makes you more likely to experience problems with gingivitis and periodontal disease over time. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can talk to you about a less invasive procedure to restore your gum line. Through the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we can actually manipulate these tissues into place without the need for suturing, making the process itself more comfortable and making recovery easier!
Has Poor Periodontal Health Hurt Your Smile?
The consequences of periodontal disease can affect your well-being. As bacteria continue to multiply and accumulate on your teeth roots, you become vulnerable to health problems when microbes enter your bloodstream and attack different parts of your body. You also need to worry about the damage those bacteria can do to the tissues that support teeth, which leads to their loss. Tooth loss is certainly a cosmetic concern, but it is not the only one linked to an infection. Over time, infected gums can begin to recede, leading to negative changes in your appearance and new problems for your health and quality of life.
We Provide A Less Invasive Treatment For Gum Line Recession
If your periodontal tissues are noticeably recessed, we can advise you on the benefits of a pinhole gum grafting procedure. Through this approach to care, we can use laser technology to improve your experience with periodontal care. Pin-sized holes are all we need to make in order to manipulate your tissues back into position. This means there is no need for suturing, so your procedure is more comfortable and your experience with recovery is easier!
What Else Can Your Periodontist Do To Provide More Comfortable Care?
By using the right tools and providing the right services, we can offer positive experiences with treatment for periodontal disease. Lasers help us offer better support during grafting treatments as well as direct work to tend to bacteria and infected gums. We can also provide a more comfortable approach to care for your infection by offering holistic services like ozone therapy and PRP therapy. Ozone therapy relies on concentrated oxygen to fight harmful microbes, while PRP therapy uses platelet-rich plasma to stimulate natural growth of healthy tissues.
