While untreated issues with your gums can cause many worrying symptoms, the recession of your gum tissues can be one of the most visible, and one of the most frustrating. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can provide a modern approach to addressing this problem. To reduce the amount of work required to restore your gum line, our office offers pinhole gum grafts. This approach relies on the Pinhole Surgical Technique, which eliminates surgical cuts and sutures from the process! This is one of many advanced treatment options that we make available to individuals who are trying to fight the harmful effects of periodontal disease.
Periodontal Disease Can Lead To Issues With Gum Recession
When your gum tissues are affected by bacteria, there are several symptoms that can grab your attention. When a person first develops gingivitis, the initial stage of an infection, they may start to notice that their gums bleed more easily than before. The problem can also cause your gum tissues to swell, or redden. Over time, a person with this problem can notice that their gum line seems to have receded. Receding gums can negatively affect your smile, but this can also be a problem for your oral health.
Arranging A Modern Pinhole Gum Graft
Instead of providing a gum grafting treatment that requires surgical cuts, and sutures, our practice uses the Pinhole Surgical Technique to move your gum tissues. Small, pin-sized holes are used to aid in the movement of your gum tissues. Special technology makes it possible to move your gums, and a biocompatible collagen material facilitates healing, and the safe attachment of your gum tissues. Through this process, you can see results in less time, and you can enjoy a shorter and easier healing period.
