If you are having a hard time pointing to why your smile seems to look different, take a closer look at your gum line. Several issues can lead to the recession of these tissues. It can be a result of stress and teeth grinding, aggressive brushing, or an infection. If the problem is not caused by gum disease, you can become more susceptible to gingivitis as a result. Gum grafting procedures can benefit your periodontal health and appearance. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, our approach to gum line restoration involves the Pinhole Surgical Technique, which minimizes the necessary work and can lead to a shorter recovery period.
Issues Connected To Gum Line Recession
If you observe a change in your gum tissues, you may attribute the matter to problems with gingivitis. This can be one symptom of an infection, but there are other issues that can lead to a receding gum line. If you have struggled with teeth grinding, including grinding at night, the problem can cause tissues to recede. If you brush with too much force, your current oral hygiene routine can be a reason for gum line recession as well. Dealing with these matters can be good for your periodontal health, as you may have a harder time avoiding gingivitis after your gum line has moved.

Arranging Treatment To Restore Your Gum Line
Thanks to the Pinhole Surgical Technique, our practice can restore a patient’s gum line with a minimally invasive process that does not require the use of a scalpel, or sutures to help with healing. Thanks to a series of small, carefully placed holes, we can carefully manipulate the tissues to bring them back into their proper positions. The healing process can be improved with a special biocompatible collagen substance applied between your roots and the tissues. Once this work is complete, you can feel more confident in your smile while also enjoying better resistance to gum disease.
