As your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist works out how to take care of your smile, they can look into addressing any changes that may have impacted your gum line over time. Recession often affects people who have issues with gum disease. When this becomes an issue, it can affect a person’s confidence in their smile, and it can create more problems for their oral health. We provide a less-invasive form of gum grafting treatment that relies on laser technology. Because of this, we can make the procedure less involved, we can remove the need for suturing, and we can make your healing easier! Lasers also help us fight active problems with periodontal disease – to fully support your needs, we may recommend gum grafting treatment as well as laser periodontal services to fight a serious infection.
Poor Periodontal Health Can Lead To Gum Line Recession
Gum line recession is one of many problems that can affect someone who is dealing with periodontal disease. As your gums start to recede, they expose portions of your teeth that are naturally more sensitive, and have less protection, which can lead to more discomfort and dental problems over time. This issue can also lead to unwelcome cosmetic changes that can impact your confidence in your smile.
Performing A Pinhole Gum Grafting Procedure
Rather than perform a gum grafting procedure that relies on manual tools to manipulate gum tissues and change your appearance, Dr. Kania can use the Pinhole Surgical Technique to provide a more conservative solution to this problem. The small, pin-sized holes we make can be used to carefully manipulate your periodontal tissues and change your gum line. Because this reduces the amount of work done on your gum line and removes suturing from the process, you can enjoy an easier recovery and spend less time waiting to see the cosmetic benefits of treatment!
Other Periodontal Services That Rely On Lasers
We can use lasers to address active problems with your periodontal health. Through the use of our laser tools, we are able to carefully access areas where bacteria have gathered and remove harmful microbes, and we can also encourage the growth of healthy tissues by removing portions of your gums that are infected.
