Gum Recession Treatment - Aliso Viejo, CA
Gum recession is one of the side effects of periodontal disease and can also be an outcome of underlying oral health problems. If you have gingival recession, you may need to undergo gum surgery to restore your gum line. The gums do not grow back after they have worn away, so early treatment is essential for preserving healthy teeth and gums.
Gum Surgery and Gingival Recession Treatment Options
Dr. Cho may recommend a gum graft to restore your gum line. However, many patients do not need to undergo extensive gum surgery. The Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) is minimally invasive and can be very effective for improving your oral health.
Gum disease is the primary cause of gingival recession, and must be treated before we can repair receding gums. However, there are several things you can do to prevent gum disease and reduce symptoms like inflammation and tissue irritation. Brushing and flossing diligently, seeking the dental care you need, and taking steps to reduce your risk of gum disease can help you maintain your oral health and possibly prevent the occurrence of gum recession.
You may not need extensive gum surgery to maintain your healthy smile. If you are concerned about gingival recession and want to reduce your risk of gum disease, schedule a consultation with Dr. Cho in Aliso Viejo, CA today!
Our Google Patient Review
I had the pinhole technique done to fix my receding gums for my lower teeth. I am so glad I got this done as I don't have any more sensitivity in the teeth where the root was exposed. My recovery was quick and I am happy with the work Dr. Cho did.
