15 Sep Boynton Beach Dentist Offers Revolutionary Treatment for Gum Recession
One of the more common problems seen by Dr. Rosemary Baghdassarian, D.D.S. of H.A.B. Dental in Boynton Beach is gum recession. You might even have the problem without realizing it.
“Gum recession is when your gums pull away from your tooth exposing more of the tooth’s surface,” Dr. Baghdassarian says. If you have noticed dark areas or pockets by your gumline or you are experiencing sensitivity that you never had before, gum recession might be the cause.
What causes gum recession?
- Brushing too hard
- Periodontal disease
- Clenching or grinding your teeth
Fortunately, as Boynton Beach dentist Dr. Baghdassarian says, “There’s a revolutionary new technique called Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ that is scalpel free, suture free and virtually pain free.”
The Chao Pinhole Gum Recession Technique
Conventional gum-grafting involves cutting tissue from the roof of your mouth. The gum in the area of the recession is then cut open and lifted and the tissue taken from your palette is placed over the exposed tooth area. Sutures are used to hold the graft in place during healing
With the Chao Pinhole Gum Recession technique, your gum recession can be corrected without the need for cutting or for sutures. With this exciting new technique, a special dental instrument is inserted through a tiny entry point in the gum. A trained specialist then uses this instrument to free the gums with gentle movements. Once free, the gums are guided down into a healthy position. When the recession has been corrected, tiny collagen strips are placed inside to help stabilize the gums.
Patients are usually surprised at how fast the pinhole heals – often overnight!
When complete, the receding gums are corrected with a minimally invasive treatment that is quick easy and instantly pleasing.
