Treat Receding Gums with Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation
While receding gums is undoubtedly a troubling cosmetic issue that can ruin a beautiful smile. If you have a receding gum line, it can also cause increased tooth sensitivity while exposing the roots of your teeth (which are not protected by enamel coating) to bacteria, plaque, and debris. This exposure can leave your teeth at greater risk of damage and decay.
Thankfully, a new dental technique called pinhole gum rejuvenation can restore your gum line and prevent further damage. If you’ve heard about this groundbreaking restoration, you’ve probably searched for terms such as “pinhole surgical technique near me.” Well, we’ve got great news! At Claire Cho DDS, Dr. Claire Cho is one of the few practitioners who offer this breakthrough therapy that can reshape your gum line with less pain and discomfort than traditional gum grafts.
What Causes Receding Gums?
Dr. Cho often answers many questions from patients concerning why they have receding gums. While periodontitis (gum disease) is the most common culprit due to the build-up of bacteria that leaves toxic by-products which eat away at gum tissues, there are also other causes and risk factors that can lead to gum recession, such as:
- Grinding and clenching your teeth
- Hormonal fluctuations caused by events such as menopause and pregnancy
- A misaligned bite
- The use of tobacco products
- Poor oral hygiene
- Body jewelry that is worn around or inside your mouth
The advantage of treating receding gums at the onset is that you’ll have less risk of loose teeth, decay, and losing teeth due to extractions.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique Explained
Experience gum rejuvenation without invasive procedures with the revolutionary pinhole gum rejuvenation treatment. This technique is only available from specially trained dental providers and is a quick and minimally invasive alternative to gum grafting.
A pinhole-sized opening is made near the receding gums, and dental instruments gently reposition the gum tissue. Collagen strips are also placed over the repositioned tissue to assist in the healing and re-attachment process.
Here are a few reasons why patients prefer the pinhole surgical technique:
- The treatment causes less discomfort with no bleeding or swelling.
- It’s relatively non-invasive compared to gum grafting, with a faster and more comfortable recovery period.
- Dr. Cho can perform the technique on multiple teeth within the same visit.
- It improves the appearance of your smile immediately.
