Believe it or not, gum disease affects the majority of adult patients. For many individuals, a deep cleaning is enough to reverse the problem. For others, gum disease escalates into receding gums or bone and tooth loss.
What is the problem with receding gums?
Any form of gum recession changes a smile’s appearance. It can leave a patient feeling less confident. A case of severe receding gums also has health consequences.
Receding gums can lead to:
- Exposed tooth roots
- Tooth sensitivity
- Tooth decay
- Tooth infection
- Tooth loss
The best way to reverse receding gums is waiting for you at Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry!
Dr. Geren is proud to announce that we perform the Pinhole Surgical Technique at Mt. Vernon Center for Dentistry. A pinhole gum treatment is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum grafting.
- The Pinhole Surgical Technique:
- Eliminates scalpels
- Eliminates sutures
- Reduces recovery time
- Reduces postoperative symptoms
- Provides instant gum rejuvenation and a confident, healthy smile
What is the Pinhole Surgical Technique and how does it work?
In a pinhole gum treatment, your surgeon will make a small hole in the existing gum tissue. The gum tissue is loosened and then gently pulled over the gum line to cover the exposed tooth and roots.
With no cutting, stitching, or grafting required, you can expect a far more comfortable receding gums solution!
Traditional gum grafting involves the use of donor tissue and invasive methods. The Pinhole Surgical Technique allows for a better patient experience that delivers excellent results.
