It is important to identify the negative effects gum disease can have on your periodontal tissues. When you come in for an evaluation at our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can help you identify problems, and recommend modern solutions. Sometimes, it can be appropriate to remove damaged tissues, or perform services that encourage the growth of new tissues. In addition to directly interacting with infected tissues to fight periodontal disease, we can help you take on frustrating cosmetic changes. People who struggle with poor gum health often experience gum line recession, which can expose vulnerable portions of their teeth while also hurting the quality of their smile. To restore your gum line, we rely on the Pinhole Surgical Technique, a less invasive treatment that can lead to faster recovery than traditional gum grafting procedures.
Problems Associated With Gum Line Recession
It can be easy to see how gum line recession has affected your smile. As your gums recede, your teeth can appear overly long, or uneven. You should know that this problem, in addition to being a consequence of infection, can make future infections more likely. This change in your gum line also exposes portions of your teeth that are more susceptible to tooth decay, and generally more sensitive.
What To Expect When You Arrange A Pinhole Gum Graft
While traditional gum grafting procedures tend to require the use of a scalpel, and call for sutures to help with healing, a pinhole gum graft makes your treatment experience easier. Through the Pinhole Surgical Technique, Dr. Kania can use special technology to move your gum tissues back to their proper positions. To facilitate better healing and attachment, a biocompatible collagen material will be applied to the space between your gums and the roots of your teeth.
