It is time to take a closer look at your oral health to determine if you are in need of dental care for your gums. Visit Periodontal Associates of Mississauga for a complete assessment of your teeth and gums to make sure you haven’t missed the early detection signs of gum recession. Gum recession can occur for a number of reasons:
- Abrasive brushing habits
- Natural aging
- Old or faulty dental work
Once signs of gum recession are detected it should be taken very seriously. When left untreated, the root structure will become exposed and this means that tooth decay can occur at a much faster pace. Rapid tooth decay can negatively affect your oral health and your overall well being.
There are a number of techniques that can be used to repair gum recession, however, the one that stands out is Pinhole Surgical Techniques. This method is preferred by Periodontists as it is minimally invasive as well as incision and suture free. More traditional methods require gum grafts and sutures to join the gum lines together. If recommended, Periodontal Associates of Mississauga will review the procedure with you, from beginning to end, to ease any concerns you may have.
Pinhole Surgical Technique
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is an adjustment of the existing tissue by creating a small hole in the patient’s existing gum tissue. This pinhole then becomes the entry point for special instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue. The use of these tools helps to reposition the gum line to cover exposed roots. The entire procedure is done by adjusting existing tissue.
There are several benefits to Pinhole Surgical Technique:
- Less discomfort after treatment
- Recovery is relatively quick
- Remove the need for sutures
- All adjustments are made with the patients own tissue
- Natural looking results
- Long lasting effects
The expert team at the Mississauga office will assess the needs of each patient, and if gum recession is a problem, the dedicated team will discuss the options available to you including Pinhole Surgical Technique. Along with this procedure, any further cosmetic dentistry required to maintain excellent oral health will be reviewed.
