How Concerned Should I Be About A Receding Gum Line?

When gingivitis first becomes an issue, you may notice some worrying symptoms. Your gums may begin to bleed whenever you brush and floss, and you can start to notice swelling, or reddening, of these tissues. Periodontal sensitivity can also become a matter of concern. These problems can be managed, and your gums can be returned to normal, when you address your periodontal health. What can be more worrying is if your gum line begins to recede. Fortunately, you do have access to treatment if this occurs. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we offer pinhole gum grafts.

Problems With Gum Line Recession

Of course, you should be worried by any sign of periodontal trouble. After all, periodontal disease can have a potentially huge impact on your oral health, and can put you at a higher risk for tooth loss, and conditions that hurt your general well-being. Gum line recession can be particularly troubling because it can hurt the way you look, and it can expose sensitive portions of your teeth. Because these portions of your teeth are exposed, you may begin to have issues with dental sensitivity.

Restoring Your Gum Line With A Pinhole Gum Graft

Pinhole gum grafts can lead to great results, and the approach can be more patient-friendly than a traditional procedure. After creating pinpoint-sized holes, your periodontist can use those holes to manipulate your gums into their appropriate positions to give you back your original gumline. Your treatment can be done without the need for any surgical cuts in your gum tissues, and your healing period can be shorter and easier! Once the work is done, you can be better protected against further periodontal troubles, and you can notice a great improvement in your smile!
