How Is Gum Recession Addressed?

Receding gum tissues can change your appearance and raise your risk for problems with poor periodontal health. This problem is often linked to gum disease, as it can be a symptom of it and because it can make healthy tissues more likely to become infected. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we are prepared to provide a service that effectively fixes this issue, one that can be surprisingly conservative! By employing the Pinhole Surgical Technique to help you with this issue, we can restore your gumline without the need for suturing. This approach depends on laser technology to make the process so patient-friendly; in addition to benefiting you during treatment, it can make your recovery easier as well!

Receding Gums Can Affect People With Poor Periodontal Health

There are different issues that you are more likely to experience when you have issues with poor gum health. Bad breath, tissue damage, and the spread of unhealthy bacteria are a few of the problems you can find yourself trying to manage. You can also see unwelcome changes to your smile as you experience a recession of gum tissues. When this happens, you can feel worse about the way you look, and you can have problems because more vulnerable and sensitive portions of your tooth structure are exposed.

Using The Pinhole Surgical Technique To Restore Your Gumline

Through pinhole gum grafting, we are able to manipulate tissues into their appropriate positions with a more conservative procedure, one that does not make suturing necessary. Instead, pin-sized holes are used to carefully move the gum line back to its proper place. With laser tools, we can perform this work while minimizing damage to tissues and reducing problems with bleeding. Because the work is more conservative, you can have an easier time with your recovery and you can see cosmetic benefits sooner than you might anticipate!
