Repair receding gums fast with pinhole gum rejuvenation
Have you noticed changes in the appearance of your teeth and gums? When you look at older photographs, do your teeth seem to be longer today than they did previously? This is a common problem of the adult population, and it is also one that should not be ignored. While there are several reasons that can cause your gums to recede over time, receding gums can lead to both bone and tooth loss. Fortunately, however, there is an excellent treatment for receding gums that can quickly repair the damage.
Repair receding gums without surgery
The conventional method for repairing receding gums can be very invasive and involves gum grafting. A newer method, called pinhole gum rejuvenation, requires no incisions and can repair your gums in about an hour. If you opt for this minimally invasive procedure, here is what you can generally expect to happen:
- A local anesthetic is given to numb the part of your gums that requires treatment
- A tiny pinhole opening is made by your dentist in that same area
- Using a small, specially designed instrument, the gum tissue is gently loosened and moved back to a healthy position
- Tiny collagen strips are inserted under your gums to hold them in place temporarily to give your body the necessary time it needs to create and replenish this area with its own newly formed collagen
Another benefit of pinhole rejuvenation is that there is not only a faster recovery and healing time, but there is also a reduced risk of infection. The conventional method, in contrast, can take from several weeks to a couple of months to fully heal.
Is pinhole gum rejuvenation for you?
To ensure the best outcome, it is very important to first make sure there are no signs of inflammation or infection before you undergo pinhole gum rejuvenation.
