In most cases, gum recession is a result of periodontal disease (also known as gum disease). However, this is not always the case. Receding gums can also be a result of other factors, such as brushing your teeth too aggressively. Practicing good oral hygiene is the best way to avoid gum recession, but following proper brushing and flossing techniques is equally as important. If you are experiencing gum recession due to periodontal disease, getting your gums back to optimal health with options like laser periodontal treatment is the first step. Once gums have been restored to proper health, the appearance of receding gums can be addressed with Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™.

I use the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ to help my patients achieve healthier, more attractive gums without the need for more invasive methods. As an alternative to traditional gum surgery, Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ offers a much more comfortable experience, as well as a shorter recovery period. Typically, the procedure only requires one or two very small incisions (depending on the affected area), which heal relatively quickly after the treatment.

If you think you may have receding gums and are interested in Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™, please do not hesitate to contact my practice today to learn more or schedule a consultation with me. In a consultation, I can conduct a thorough examination and help you find the best possible treatment.

Thanks for visiting! 🙂
