While the gradual recession of a patient’s gum line can occur because of periodontal disease, there are other factors can cause this to occur. This problem can change the way you look when you smile, make you more likely to experience dental sensitivity, and it can make gum disease more likely if it has not already developed. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice relies on a treatment known as the Pinhole Surgical Technique to restore a patient’s gum line. This process minimizes the work required to move your gum line back into proper position, and it can lead to an easier healing experience. We can further improve your comfort during this work by using lasers whenever it is necessary to remove periodontal tissues.
Gum Line Recession Often Occurs When You Struggle With Periodontal Disease
Issues like stress, aggressive brushing, and more may be responsible for gum line recession. With that said, the problem is often tied to concerns about periodontal disease. Even if you do not have a problem with gum disease as the problem starts to occur, it can make you more susceptible to an infection. If the matter is not addressed, it can create several frustrating issues. Your smile may appear less uniform and less attractive, and portions of teeth that are more sensitive can become exposed.
We Offer A More Conservative Approach To Gum Grafting
Because we offer pinhole gum grafting, we can perform work to move your gum line that feels less invasive while still delivering exciting results. There is no need for suturing when the Pinhole Surgical Technique is used to restore your gums, and there is less bleeding during the work. In addition to making the healing process easier in general, this process makes you less vulnerable to infection after care. It can make you more confident in your restored appearance!
How Lasers Fit Into A Gum Grafting Procedure
When trimming away damaged portions of a patient’s gums, we use soft tissue lasers. This can sometimes be necessary during a gum grafting procedure to ensure that new tissues attach successfully to teeth. Lasers provide greater accuracy, shorter healing periods, and less discomfort than when manual tools are used on periodontal tissues. Because of this, we can go even further in providing you a better experience with gum grafting!
