Protect Your Gums to Safeguard Your Teeth

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.

A Minimally Invasive Treatment Alternative

Gum recession has in recent years been treated through gum grafting, which involves removing a small piece of gum tissue from one part of your mouth and suturing it over the recessed gum area. After your gums heal, they naturally begin to protect the roots of your teeth once again. Although yielding positive results, the drawback to gum grafting is not its success rate, but the mechanics of the procedure itself. Grafting is invasive by nature, requiring the use of scalpels and sutures to complete. In contrast, the Pinhole Surgical Technique only requires one tiny, pin-sized hole.
