How Lasers Improve On Gum Grafting

A gum grafting procedure can be an important part of your work to address periodontal disease. Your recessed tissues can make you vulnerable to more health issues, and it can leave you feeling unhappy with your appearance. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can provide a solution that is surprisingly conservative. The Pinhole Surgical Technique uses laser tools to minimize tissue damage and remove the need for suturing. With carefully-placed pin-sized holes, we can manipulate tissues to restore your smile and make sure your gums provide the proper coverage for portions of teeth that are meant to remain covered.

Gum Grafting Without A Need For Suturing

Gum grafting can be an important aspect of periodontal care, but without the right approach, it can be one that takes time to recover from, as well as one that can cause more bleeding and tissue damage than you feel comfortable with. With laser tools, we can minimize bleeding as well as unnecessary changes to gum tissues. In fact, this technology can make the process conservative and careful enough to remove the need for suturing, which can make you more comfortable after treatment ends.

Using The Pinhole Surgical Technique For Your Gum Grafting Procedure

Through the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we can more carefully and conservatively move your gums into position so that they provide the coverage you require to protect the roots of your teeth. We can use our laser tools to make small, pin-sized holes which we can use in the movement of tissues. Because this process does less to affect your gums, its completion can be more comfortable, and it can take you less time to heal and see the benefits of care!

Technology And Periodontal Care

Periodontal disease is a problem that should not be taken lightly, as it can be responsible for different significant issues, including tooth loss and even an increased risk for heart disease! Because we rely on laser technology when we manage patients’ periodontal health, we can make time in treatment easier, and we can see to it that you have the right protection against your infection.
