The Right Treatment for Your Gum Recession
Gum recession can occur for a variety of reasons and treatment options are just as variable. Some of the most common causes include the onset of gum disease, genetics, injury, dental treatments, lifestyle, hormones, and other factors.
Dr. Penhaskashi can determine what is causing your gum recession and provide the right treatment plan to address it. Read on to find out more about the treatments we offer for patients with gum recession.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ | The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is a new technique that allows Dr. Penhaskashi to improve the gums without gum grafting. The method and unique tools used during the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ make the procedure easier to endure because there is no cutting or stitching involved.
Patients often enjoy a noticeable improvement the same day of their treatment. Many have reported an easy, quick recovery.
Laser Therapy | Gum recession is often caused by moderate to severe gum disease, which is now treatable with reduced discomfort. Instead of using a scalpel, which often increases recession by inadvertently cutting out healthy tissue, Dr. Penhaskashi uses the LANAP® laser protocol to treat gum disease.
This method is an effective and efficient way to wipe out harmful oral bacteria while keeping the rest of the gum line intact and unharmed.
Gum Grafting | Gum grafting is a safe, traditional way to return lost tissue to the receded area. Existing soft tissue from another area of the mouth is removed and attached 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.
