Pinhole Gum Surgery
Why you made need Pinhole Gum Surgery
Do you suffer from receding gums? Receding gum tissue can often be a result of active periodontal disease (also known as gum disease). This condition is degenerative and can result in tooth loss and jawbone decay if left untreated. Correcting this gum recession is necessary to restoring and maintaining your healthy smile.
What is Pinhole Gum Surgery?
Pinhole gum surgery is a minimally invasive option for treating gum recession from bone loss. Unlike soft tissue grafting, this technique begins by creating a pinhole in the gum tissue that is receding. The treatment utilizes a needle to make small holes above the diseased or affected area. Once the pinhole has been created, a device is placed into the hole, which peels and stretches the gum into a healthier and more suitable position on the tooth. Using this technique, your West 17th Avenue Dental Care dentist can work on between 10 to 13 teeth at one time, and unlike with conventional treatments, the healing takes only days instead of weeks.
