Here at West Cobb Dental Design, we are proud to offer pinhole gum surgery as one of our services. This technique is used to treat receding gum lines without having to undergo any tissue grafting, incisions, or sutures. Pinhole gum surgery allows the natural gum tissue to cover the exposed root structure of your teeth rather than relying on donor tissue. The procedure is a minimally invasive, safe, and an effective way to treat the issue of receding gums.
Gum recession can be caused by a variety of factors such as:
- Poor Dental Hygiene
- Periodontal Disease
- Grinding or Clenching Teeth
- Tobacco Use
- Misaligned or Crowded Bite
- Oral Piercings
Gum recession can compromise the health of your teeth if left untreated. Exposed roots can become easily infected and are more prone to sensitivity and tooth decay.
