Do you have receding gums?
Do you have gum recession? This the exposure of the tooth roots caused by the gum tissue retracting. Gum recession can be caused by:
Teeth that are out of alignment
Trauma to the teeth
Overly aggressive brushing or flossing
Severe gum disease
Pinhole Surgical Technique TM
The most recent development in gum grafting for receding gums is the Pinhole Surgical Technique. Dr. Conant is trained in this new technique. With the pinhole technique, receding gums are treated by shifting the gum tissue over the exposed roots through minute pinholes, and stabilizing the gums in position with collagen. No sutures are required. The entire mouth can be treated in just one visit!
Microsurgical techniques make our gum grafting minimally invasive. We only need to use local anesthesia. No prescription medicines are needed after treatment, just over the counter pain killers for a couple of days, if the patient so chooses.
Minimally invasive also means minimal impact on the body. Conventional gum grafting requires the sacrifice of healthy gum tissue and can lead to further gum loss after healing. There is an additional cosmetic benefit: conventional surgery leaves a white patch which doesn’t blend aesthetically. With our minimally invasive techniques your new gum is naturally pink.
