How Lasers Fit Into Gum Grafting Treatment

Gum line recession is a problem that makes your periodontal health harder to manage, and it also leads to concerns like lowered smile quality and trouble with dental sensitivity. While it is not always caused by periodontal disease, it can be closely associated with an infection. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can talk to you about making corrections to this problem through pinhole gum grafting. The Pinhole Surgical Technique removes the need for suturing during your procedure, and it can generally provide an easier and more conservative solution to this problem. Our laser technology helps us provide easier care for patients under many circumstances, as we can tend to problems with greater precision and help you enjoy a shorter and easier healing period.

Has Poor Periodontal Health Led To Your Gum Line Receding?

Problems with poor periodontal health can leave you with recessed gum tissues. As this problem worsens, it can expose portions of your teeth that react with greater sensitivity to heat and cold, and have less natural protection against decay. This change can also lead to concerns about your appearance, as it can make teeth look longer and uneven. This is a condition that can also make it more difficult to prevent future periodontal problems. In other words, even if your recession is not something that can be traced back to gum disease, it can make you more likely to have this issue in the future.

Using The Pinhole Surgical Technique To Restore Your Gum Line

Through the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we have the ability to make corrections to your receding gum line with a more conservative procedure, one that does not rely on suturing to complete your care. Through a series of small, carefully made holes, we can manipulate your tissues back into more beneficial positions. Because this service relies on laser technology instead of manual tools, we can provide care that is more precise, and we can provide care that includes a faster and easier recovery.

Other Services That Benefit From The Use Of Laser Technology

Fighting advanced gum disease with laser tools offers several benefits. With this approach, we can tackle concerns about an active infection while preserving surrounding healthy tissues. During treatment, we will carefully reveal the infection area so that we can clear away bacteria. We will also tend to infected tissues to encourage your body to recover by growing healthy gums.
