If your gums look as though they are receding, or if recession of these tissues is something that your dentist has warned you about, you can have an interest in treatment options. As you look into the benefits of undergoing a procedure to restore your gum line, you can find that some approaches sound more invasive and uncomfortable than others. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can give you a better experience because we use laser technology to provide treatment via the Pinhole Surgical Technique. A pinhole gum grafting treatment minimizes tissue damage and removes the need for suturing and surgical cuts!
Is It Time For You To Do Something About Your Receding Gum Line?
Gum line recession can affect your appearance by making your teeth look longer, more uneven, and generally not as attractive. This is certainly cause for concern on its own. Unfortunately, there are other consequences to this problem that you should know about. The exposure of areas that are normally covered by periodontal tissues can make you more vulnerable to oral health problems and issues with dental sensitivity. Even if this change is not caused by a periodontal infection, it can make you more vulnerable to one. Because this is an issue that can impact your smile as well as your oral health, it is beneficial to make its treatment a priority when you realize that something is wrong.
Using Lasers To Improve Your Experience During Your Gum Graft
With laser technology, our practice can provide a gum grafting treatment experience that removes the need for surgical cuts and sutures, making the procedure itself and recovery easier for patients. Through the use of the Pinhole Surgical Technique, Dr. Kania can use small, pin-sized holes to carefully manipulate tissues into place. This preserves more of your healthy tissues, plus it reduces your risk for infection as it makes healing briefer and easier.
The Role Lasers Play In Periodontal Care
Our practice relies on laser technology during many important periodontal procedures. Because of this, we can make important services easier for patients, leading to better experiences in our office and easier recovery times after. In addition to gum grafting treatments, we use lasers to directly deal with periodontal disease by removing diseased gums and bacteria, as well as by using these tools during jawbone grafting treatment.
