Are you tired of having “long teeth” because of your receding gumlines? Maybe you’ve been referred to an oral surgeon in the past, but are hesitant to undergo complex gum surgery or grafting. If so, you’ll be thrilled to learn about the modern approach to gum recession called Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation.
What is it?
Using minimally invasive techniques, we reposition the gum tissues that you already have, so that they stretch a little bit more to cover up your exposed roots. There are no invasive incisions, extensive healing times, or dressings to wear.
The process looks exactly like it sounds. First, our Florence dentist will create a small pinhole sized opening in the gum tissues further up your tooth. As the tissues are gently loosened, we bring them upward to cover your root like a blanket over a bed.
No Discomfort. No Down Time.
Traditional gum surgery can take days or even weeks to recover from. Not to mention extensive sutures that need to be removed later. With Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation, you can combat the side effects of receding gums and gum disease without a lot of down time. In fact, it’s far more comfortable than getting a gingival graft!
Why Do I Need to Treat Receding Gums?
Gum recession isn’t just unsightly, it’s also bad for your teeth. Without gums around them, your teeth become more susceptible to periodontal disease, mobility, and falling out altogether. Plus, your root surfaces aren’t nearly as resistant to tooth decay, which can make them develop cavities very quickly.
