Everyone at Smileboston Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry loves a big, wide smile in Boston, MA. It’s the universal symbol for happiness, an expression of joy, love and more. But while teeth are beautiful, it’s a little unsightly when your gums have receded so far back that the roots of your teeth are exposed. Not only is it a little unsightly and discolored, it can also be risky to your oral health, as the exposed areas are prone to bacteria or food being lodged inside. But not all is lost if you suffer from this condition.
Traditionally, dentists have turned to gum grafts to solve this flaw for their patients – but now there’s a new technique on the market that is more effective and needs less recovery time. At Smileboston Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry we’re proud to now offer the Pinhole Surgical Technique for gum rejuvenation.
Minimal Surgery in Minutes
The Pinhole Surgical Technique is superior thanks to a few other factors as well. Thanks to the minimalist surgery, the side effects of gum disease and gum infections can be rectified in quick time and and reduced recovery period. Our patients can enjoy their new gums in no time, recovering from the effects of gum disease, infections, or other causes of gum recession.
Since the process is quite simple, we can treat many areas of gum recession at once, and in a short amount of time as well. This effective treatment is what enables our patients to experience less pain, a shorter recovery period, and no scarring from the surgery.
Overall, the Pinhole Surgical Technique has garnered a reputation for it’s effectiveness and being better for a patient’s well-being. In this day and age, our patients are eager to get up and going as soon as they can after surgery, and the Pinhole Surgical Technique is one such way to treat their gums with minimal invasiveness.
Gum Graft vs. Pinhole Technique
While gum grafts are common and have a certain rate of success, some of our patients in Boston, MA found the drawbacks to be a dealbreaker. Gum grafts generally take longer to heal due to the stitches and amount of tissue that was transferred. There’s also a real possibility of leaving a scar on your gum line where the surgery was performed. Patients who opted for the gum graft didn’t realize that the stitches would have been noticeable as well by friends and family.
Because the effects of the Pinhole Surgical Technique are so invisible and quick to heal, this technique is highly preferred over traditional gum grafts here in Boston, MA. Patients have enjoyed returning their everyday lives and work within a day or two.
