Gum Recession Treatment with Advanced Techniques

A large population in the United States suffers from gum recession, or root exposure. Gum recession refers to when the gum tissue recedes from the crown of the tooth, which revels more of the tooth or even the root as well.

At Goduco Family Dentistry, we have the solution you need if you suffer from receding gums.  Gum rejuvenation eliminates your suffering from tooth sensitivity due to your tooth’s exposed roots.  Left untreated, tooth recession can lead to further problems such as tooth decay and chronic sensitivity of the tooth.

Traditionally, gum recession correction typically involved a connective tissue graft.  The graft procedure involved taking donor tissue from the roof of your mouth and then suturing the wound back together.  At the point of the gum recession, incisions were made and the donor tissue is sutured to the overlaying gum tissue.  Although this procedure is effective, the patient is left with swelling, bleeding and pain that can last for a few weeks.

Invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S., Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation is an incision-free and suture-free procedure that treats gum recession, and is the procedure that Goduco Family Dentistry uses for gum recession.  A small pinhole is made, and Dr. Goduco uses instruments that were specially designed to loosen the gum tissue and move it over the exposed part of the tooth. This allows the gum line to return to its normal position.  Patients experience a great level of comfort after surgery and have minimal post-operative symptoms since there are no stitches or incisions made.  In addition, the majority of patients experience cosmetic improvement instantly.
