Unveiling the Truth Behind Your Gums
When the soft tissues surrounding your teeth recede, it can not only look unattractive, it can also lead to far greater concerns. There can be many causes of gum recession— aggressive brushing, aging, heredity, etc.—but the end results of unchecked gum recession are often the same: teeth that become sensitive to food and beverages and eventually weaken and fall out. Gums help protect your tooth roots from harmful bacteria. When that protective barrier disappears, the bacteria can take hold and cause decay in your teeth and ultimately the bone that’s acting as their foundation. The Pinhole® Surgical Technique provides an innovative and gently solution to gum recession.
