Gum line recession impacts many people, and not always because of gum disease. This condition can make you more vulnerable to issues with dental sensitivity, it can make preventive care more difficult, and it can lead to unwelcome cosmetic changes. For those who have this issue but do not have issues with an infection already, the problem can make a future infection more likely. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice provides a minimally invasive grafting procedure that relies on laser technology. Through the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we can manipulate your gum tissues while making both the service itself and your recovery easier!
Why Gum Line Recession Should Not Be Ignored
How much concern should you really have over a change in your gum line? If this issue is ignored, it leaves you vulnerable to problems with tooth sensitivity, as more vulnerable areas of your teeth are exposed. You also have to worry about unwelcome cosmetic changes that make teeth look longer and more uneven. This change in your gum line can also interfere with your ability to maintain your periodontal health, and it can impact your cavity risks.
Arranging Your Pinhole Gum Grafting Treatment
The Pinhole Surgical Technique makes it possible for us to perform gum grafting procedures that do not require sutures, and only make minimal changes to tissues. With laser technology, we will make pin-sized holes that we can then use to manipulate tissues back into their appropriate places. In addition to making the procedure itself easier, patients who choose this option for care can enjoy shorter and easier recovery times!
Lasers Also Help With The Management Of Periodontal Disease
Laser technology can play an important role in managing gum disease, particularly when patients have advanced infections they want to control. Through the use of different soft tissue laser tools, we can remove diseased gums, and we can reach areas affected by bacteria buildup to clear away harmful microbes. No suturing is needed to help you recover, and you can heal from this procedure in less time than you might think possible!
