Our Approach To Gum Graft Treatments

The unwanted effects of gum disease can be hard to ignore, particularly when they affect the way you look. For many who have periodontal problems, changes in the form of gum recession can become prominent and lead to feelings of embarrassment and unease. What you should know is that our Encinitas/San Diego, CA area periodontal practice can help with this. In fact, we can actually rely on laser technology to make the treatment experience you have easier! We use laser tools to provide a gum graft using the Pinhole Surgical Technique. This has less effect on your periodontal tissues, and it can actually remove the need for suturing to help with the treatment and recovery process.

We Can Make Your Experience With A Gum Graft More Comfortable

A gum graft can move tissues so that you no longer have to worry about the effects of recession. That means no more worrying about the exposure of teeth roots that are naturally sensitive, and it means no longer worrying about an increased vulnerability to new problems with infections. Because our office relies on a more conservative treatment solution, one that uses laser tools and removes the need for suturing, we can make the experience better for our patients while still producing desired results!

Relying On The Pinhole Surgical Technique

We use pinhole gum grafts to make treatments more conservative for our patients. The Pinhole Surgical Technique makes it possible for us to use selectively placed pin-sized holes to manipulate tissues back into their appropriate places. This cuts down on the overall amount of work involved, so your tissues are better preserved. It also reduces bleeding and removes the need for suturing. Your risk for infection is lower, and you can enjoy a shorter and easier recovery period!

What Else Can Lasers Do To Make Your Treatment Experience More Comfortable?

Through the use of laser tools, we can actually take on gum disease directly when it has reached an advanced stage. We can use lasers to carefully remove unhealthy tissues as well as bacteria that are present on the teeth roots of patients who struggle with an infection. Because we can treat you with a more precise form of care, we can reduce the amount of work involved and make your recovery shorter and easier. Through a diagnostic review, we can assess whether this kind of care is required to control your infection.
