It’s All in the Technique
Gum recession is a gradual condition; you may not even realize you’re experiencing it until it has reached an advanced stage. Uneven gums around your teeth are one of the first signs. You may notice the perfectly arch-shaped gum tissue that normally covers the roots of your teeth has begun to disappear. The naturally yellow part of your teeth (dentin) that’s normally hidden becomes visible. There are multiple causes of gum recession, from aggressive brushing to advanced age to genetic predisposition. No matter the reason, the end results of unchecked recession are typically the same: extreme tooth sensitivity and eventual tooth destabilization and loss. This can also lead to jawbone deterioration. Fortunately, Paradise Dental Associates can help you avoid these complications if you seek treatment in time. We can reverse your gum recession with the groundbreaking Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Essentially, we just pull your existing healthy gum tissue over the recessed areas!
