Seeing A Specialist About Receding Gums

Gum recession has different causes. One of those causes has to do with your periodontal health, as tissues can be seriously affected by an infection. The longer you let gum disease go without the proper management, the more likely you are to experience this and other difficulties. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can help you. With the right approach to care, we can see to it that your smile is restored through the successful movement of your tissues. We actually rely on laser technology to provide the right experience with gum grafting treatment. This can make the process more conservative, which means your appointment and recovery are easier than you might believe possible.

A Periodontist Can Help You If You Are Concerned About Receding Gums

As your gums recede, you can experience problems with dental sensitivity, find yourself more vulnerable to new oral health threats, and lose confidence in your smile. These different issues can all stem from this one problem. Your health and comfort concerns stem from the nature of the tooth structure exposed, as this area is naturally weaker than the enamel normally visible. Recession can also hurt how you look by making teeth look too long, and by creating an imbalance in your smile.

A Laser Gum Graft Can Help You Fix Concerns About Tissues That Have Receded

Laser technology lets us improve on the experience that our patients have with gum grafts and other services. Using laser tools to tend to recession means that we can make the process more comfortable. We rely on the Pinhole Surgical Technique, which involves the creation of pin-sized holes that are then used to manipulate your tissues back into more appropriate spaces. This reduces bleeding and removes the need for suturing. Because the overall experience is easier for you, it can mean a shorter and more pleasant experience with your recovery.

Other Benefits To Seeing A Periodontal Specialist

By visiting a periodontal specialist to discuss your concerns about your gums, you can learn more about their health and about how you can protect them from harm. With a diagnostic review of the gums, we gain important information on their health and what treatment approach might be called for. From there, we can discuss ongoing support in the form of supportive periodontal maintenance, or we can look out for problems that will require more involved types of care.
