Are Your Gums Receding?

Gun recession is a common dental problem with serious health consequences, but most people do not know they have it.

When gum recession occurs, “pockets,” or gaps form between the teeth and gum line. This makes it easy for disease causing bacteria to build up and destroy your teeth. If left untreated, the supporting tissue and bone structures of your teeth can be severely damaged. This may ultimately result in tooth loss and other even more severe health consequences.

The first sign of gum recession is often tooth sensitivity. If you find your teeth ache when you eat or drink, this may be a sign your gums have receded.  You may also notice your teeth look longer than normal. Sometimes a notch can be felt near the gum line if touched with your finger or your tongue.

Do not ignore gum recession! Early detection and treatment is essential to maintaining overall health and saving teeth.

Luckily, treating gum recession is easier than ever before thanks to new medical techniques. The Pinhole® Surgical Technique was invented and patented by Dr. John Chao to correct this common problem. It is a scalpel-free, suture-free, graft-free, minimally invasive procedure for correcting gum recession and saving teeth.

In this procedure, specially designed instruments are used to carefully loosen the gum tissue and gently glide it over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no cutting or stitching, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms. In addition to better oral health, many patients who have undergone the Pinhole Surgical Technique enjoy instant cosmetic improvement.

I am one of the few dentists in Colorado to be currently trained in this cutting edge technique. I found this technique to be so superior to other solutions to gum recession, I have performed it on members of my own family who were facing gum recession. 

If you are worried that your gums may be receding, make an appointment with me immediately.

If your gums are actually healthy then you will no longer have to worry. If there is recession we will assess your overall oral health and see if the Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a right fit for you.
