The Right Treatment for Your Gum Recession
Gum recession happens for a variety of reasons and treatment options are just as variable. Gum disease, genetics, injury, dental treatments, lifestyle, hormones, and other factors all play a role in why some patients develop gum recession. Dr. Penhaskashi can determine what is causing your gum recession and provide the right treatment plan to address it. Here are some of the treatments he offers for patients with gum recession.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™
– The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is a new way for Dr. Penhaskashi to improve the gums without gum grafting. The method and unique tools that Dr. Penhaskashi uses during the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ makes the procedure easier to endure because there is no cutting or stitching involved. Patients enjoy a noticeable improvement the same day and report an easy, quick recovery.
– Gum recession is often caused by moderate to severe gum disease, which is now treatable in less time and with reduced discomfort. Instead of using a scalpel, which increases recession by inadvertently cutting out healthy tissue, Dr. Penhaskashi uses the LANAP® laser protocol to treat gum disease. This method is a very effective way to wipe out harmful oral bacteria while keeping the rest of the gum line intact and unharmed.
– Gum grafting is a safe, traditional way to return lost tissue to the receded area by borrowing soft tissue from another area of the mouth and attaching it to the gum line. Soft tissue can be also obtained from a donor bank for patients who prefer not to use their own oral tissue.
