Gum recession is a common dental concern and a serious one. In most cases, gum recession is caused by gum disease development by either poor oral hygiene and or tobacco use, although alternative causes such as hormones, genetics, and inadequate brushing habits are known. Once your gums recede, they won’t grow back, even after your gum disease has been treated, which can leave you open to continuous infection, and your teeth look lengthy and unsightly.
Many gum recession treatments are invasive, require multiple appointments and have long recovery times, which is why we use Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST) to offer gum rejuvenation therapy.
Benefits Of Gum Rejuvenation Therapy
No Surgical Grafting – One of the commonest gum treatments Isgum grafts in recession. They are accomplished by extracting from your palate a piece of gum tissue, and then sewing it under a flap made of the receding gum line. The recovery from the operation can be painful and prolonged.
Natural Looking Appearance – Because the Pinhole Surgical Technique only stretches existing gum tissue, it looks much more esthetically pleasing than adding gum layers below the gum line. Along with regular dental visits and good oral hygiene, this procedure also has long lasting results.
Minimal Discomfort – A cure for gum grafting can be very painful and takes a long time to recover fully. Pinhole surgical technique does not require gum tissue removal, or suture removal. You’ll get faster healing and little discomfort with this improved method of treating gum recession.
