Receding gums are the result of several factors: age, intensive brushing, acid erosion, tobacco, genes and grinding exposing the root of the tooth. The teeth appear longer, but in the wrong direction, at the top rather than at the bottom. Gingival grafting, or periodontal surgery used to be much more complicated. Now, with the invention of the “Pinhole Technique”, covering roots with your own tissue is easy. What used to take several weeks to heal, is now less than a few days will little discomfort, and and no sutures or cutting of the palate or tissue The Pinhole technique is very effective in restoring a youthful looking mouth and is seen as one of the most effective facial rejuvenation treatments around. Ask our Synergy Dental Group dentists if you are a candidate for this anti-aging procedure.
