Treatment for Receding Gums
If you have noticed your gums pulling away from your teeth, it’s time for a consultation with a knowledgeable dentist. Dr. Parker can help you determine whether receding gums treatment will restore your beautiful smile.
How to fix receding Gums
Many patients with gum recession will find that a deep cleaning is all they need to reverse the damage. More severe cases of receding gums can set the stage for root exposure, tooth sensitivity, tooth infection, and tooth loss, so it is important to receive advanced receding gums treatment right away.
Dr. Parker and his dental team specialize in conservative yet effective gum recession treatment, including the pinhole surgical technique, to revitalize our patients’ healthy smiles.
CAUSES FOR RECEDING GUMS
Three out of four adults have some form of gum disease. Unfortunately, it often goes undiagnosed for years.
Bacteria buildup, poor oral hygiene, aggressive tooth brushing, and normal wear and tear can all lead to gum recession. Receding gums lead to more serious problems including bone deterioration and tooth loss.
Some of the other risk factors for gum recession include:
Pinhole Gum Surgery
WHAT IS THE PINHOLE SURGICAL TECHNIQUE (PST)?
Pinhole gum surgery is a noninvasive receding gums treatment to reverse more severe forms of gum disease. Dr. Parker uses a needle to make a small hole in the existing gum tissue, then loosens the tissue and slides the gum line to cover the exposed root structure.
With no cutting, stitching, or grafts required, the Pinhole Surgical Technique has revolutionized the world of gum recession therapy.
HOW IS THE PINHOLE SURGICAL TECHNIQUE DIFFERENT FROM TRADITIONAL GUM SURGERY?
The Pinhole Surgical Technique offers a better patient experience with comparable results. Instead of using donor tissue or soft tissue grafts to rebuild the gum line, the Pinhole Surgical Technique utilizes the existing gum tissue.
Patients can expect minimal pain, swelling, and bleeding after their treatment. The Pinhole Surgical Technique is precise and comfortable. This technique can:
- Restore the natural look of your gums
- Reduce your recovery time
- Eliminate the need for cuts and sutures
