Avoid Scalpels And Treat Your Receding Gums

Posted by Lone Star Dental Care May 12, 2017

Are you suffering from receding gum tissue? Gum recession can be a symptom of a number of problems such as grinding your teeth, gum disease, or as a result of brushing your teeth too hard. Receded gum tissue can lead to further issues, including tooth loss and damage to your jaw bone. Typically, receded gums are treated using scalpels to cut or bond new tissue to your gums. Your dentist can offer you an alternative to avoid scalpels and treat your receding gums.

No Longer Under The Knife

To treat receding gum tissue, a dentist would usually perform gum grafting, which involves intensive surgery using scalpels. Conventional gum surgery can work but can also involve a large amount of pain and discomfort. On the other hand, Pinhole Surgery Technique (PST) is minimally invasive. PST involves your dentist creating a tiny hole through which your dentist can use special tools to gently reposition your loose, receding gum tissues.

The benefits of choosing Pinhole Surgical Technique to treat your receded gum tissue include:

  •  No scalpel is used during the procedure, so bleeding, swelling, and discomfort is minimal compared to typical periodontal surgery.
  •  No sutures are used so the healing process is more comfortable.
  •  More of your healthy, natural gum tissue is preserved.
  •  Your risk of infection during the healing process is reduced.
  •  Your gums will appear healthier, younger, and more attractive.

Don’t let the fear of invasive, painful surgery prevent you from treating your receded gum tissue. Ask your dentist about Surgical Pinhole Technique today.
