Are you experiencing receding gums? Receding gums are not only unattractive, but they can also cause dental problems due to the fact that a tooth root is now exposed. If you would like treatment for receding gums using the innovative Pinhole Surgical Technique, you should visit us at Chu & Yang Dental. Our periodontal specialist, Dr. Paul Chu, is a specialist in the Orange Pinhole Surgical Technique to fix gum recession.
A person can get receding gums for several different reasons. Gum disease can often be the cause of receding gums. However, brushing your teeth with a toothbrush that is too hard, aging, or even too frequent brushing can cause gums to receive. Whatever the cause is for your gum recession, gum recession will leave you with a smile which is not as attractive as it could be. In addition, when gums recede, it leaves the tooth root exposed. This can cause tooth sensitivity or even cause dental problems to develop, such as dental cavities. The Pinhole Surgical Technique has been created to treat gum recession and no way that is easier for the patient to tolerate. Gum recession actually is the loss of gum tissue along the gum line. The Pinhole Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive way to treat gum recession. The alternative to this treatment is traditional gum grafting surgery. However, our patients are very happy to learn that the Orange Pinhole Surgical Technique does not call for the use of any sutures, and no incisions ever need to be made. This technique allows you to have your gum recession problem solved while you experience less soreness in your mouth. Our patients also enjoy immediate cosmetic improvements. In fact, most patients are able to eat any foods that they desire after only 24 hours of healing.
