When you experience problems with gum line recession, you can have both cosmetic concerns and trouble with physical discomfort. Unfortunately, when periodontal tissues recede, they can reveal portions of our teeth that lack the natural protection afforded to the portions that are normally uncovered. This can lead to more vulnerability to oral health problems, and it can cause frustrating issues with sensitivity. To take on this issue and the esthetic effect of recession, our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can recommend that you arrange a gum grafting procedure that relies on the Pinhole Surgical Technique. Through pinhole gum grafting, we can restore your gum line and smile while minimizing the overall changes and removing the need for sutures!
Periodontal Disease And Gum Line Recession
While it can be caused by other factors than gum disease, poor periodontal health can often be the reason why people experience tissue recession. As the gum line recedes, it can make teeth look longer and less attractive, and it can expose areas that lack natural protection. These changes can make you feel awkward about how you look, and they can open you up to more dental and periodontal problems. What you might not realize is that with the right kind of care, a procedure to address this problem can take place with only minimal tissue changes, and you can actually enjoy a successful treatment and recovery without the need for sutures.
What To Expect From Pinhole Gum Grafting Treatment
With the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we can carefully manipulate your gum tissues, which enables us to move them into their appropriate places. Pin-sized holes are made using laser technology, which minimizes work on tissues and makes the treatment more comfortable. Because we are able to minimize tissue damage and avoid the use of sutures to aid in your recovery, your experience during and after care can be more pleasant, and you can see results sooner!
Maintaining Your Periodontal Health Through Continued Support
In addition to taking on the consequences of a more advanced periodontal infection, we can provide services that help you maintain your health. Supportive periodontal maintenance is a service we can provide on a regular basis to help you manage your gum health and prevent new complications from an infection. By keeping up with ongoing appointments, which are typically scheduled every three months, we can help you preserve your appearance and well-being!
