Everyone knows that healthy gums are characterized by being bright and pink. They don’t bleed when you brush your teeth, and your breath is kept fresh. At Cornerstone Dentistry, we strongly believe in being proactive with helping our patients have healthy gums. That’s why when we see the evidence of gum recession, we work aggressively with our patients to remedy the situation. The best way to do so is with pinhole gum recession treatment.
Receding gums are pretty much what they sound like. This is gum tissue that is slowly exposing more of the tooth, and in some cases can expose the root which leads to painful conditions. Untreated receding gums can become infected. This can result in the loss of teeth, and in serious cases, periodontal disease, the loss of tissue in the jawbone. Treating receding gums is critical to ensuring your teeth stay healthy and in your mouth.
Pinhole gum recession treatment is when the dentist makes small holes in the gum tissue and moves it up the tooth and inserting collagen into the empty spaces. This stimulates the growth of gum tissue and allows you to feel noticeably better about your teeth. The procedure has minimal, if any, pain. Furthermore, after a couple of days, your teeth and gums will look and feel as good as new. Thanks to this treatment, many folks have avoided problems with losing teeth and infections of the gum tissue.
If you are noticing that your teeth feel different and are shifting around, the problems can be receding gums. This is especially true if your teeth look healthy but are sensitive, and you notice your teeth seem to look bigger. Older folks tend to have receding gums as a natural consequence of age. Check with your dentist such as the professionals we have here at Cornerstone Dentistry. We will make sure that if you need pinhole gum recession treatment that it’s absolutely necessary, so you don’t have to go through a treatment you otherwise wouldn’t need.
