Gum Recession Treatment
Reverse the Effects of Receding Gums With Compassionate, Expert Level Care
Gum recession is a common problem experienced by a number of patients. It occurs when gum tissues around the teeth begin to pull away and shrink, exposing the underlying tooth roots. The tooth root surfaces are more delicate than the enamel of the crown, and at higher risk for damage, decay and erosion. Common causes of gum recession include periodontal disease, teeth grinding, misaligned teeth, poor oral hygiene and trauma, among other factors. A receding gum line leads to a range of oral problems and esthetic concerns and will not resolve without treatment. As a leading periodontal practice, our team offers professional-level care for restoring healthy gums with effective treatment options.
Signs and symptoms of gum recession:
- Sensitive teeth
- Longer-looking teeth
- Exposed tooth roots
- Notch or dent near gum line
- Darker-colored areas near gum line
- Triangular spacing between teeth
- Tooth mobility
Treatment for Receding Gums
During a one-on-one consultation and evaluation, we can determine the best gum recession treatment option for your needs. Our procedures are performed with local anesthetic and can be combined with sedation dentistry services for improved comfort, if needed.
Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique +
A minimally invasive approach, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™) allows our team to reposition receding gum tissues to healthier levels through a small, pinhole-sized opening in the gums. PST offers a number of advantages, including immediate cosmetic results, expedited healing, no scalpels or sutures and the ability to treat multiple recession sites within a single visit. Our experts are highly trained and certified in providing PST for gum recession care.
Gum Grafting +
With gum grafting, we source gum tissue samples from other areas of your mouth or a tissue bank and apply these tissues to areas of gum recession. Over time, the new tissue integrates with existing tissue, resulting in a healthier gum line and improved smile esthetics.
Enjoy a Comfortable, Confident Smile
Gum recession treatment restores the gum line to a healthier level, protecting the root surfaces and improving the appearance of your smile. The root surfaces of teeth have tiny openings that communicate directly with the nerve center of your teeth. When these areas are exposed, stimuli like hot and cold temperatures or mechanical action from your toothbrush may cause sensitivity, making daily function uncomfortable for you. We want you to enjoy your smile and specialize in providing the gum recession care you need for improved comfort, confidence and quality of life!
