Gum Surgery Options Available In Salt Lake City
If your teeth seem to look longer than they used to or your gums seem like they are getting smaller, it could be you have gum recession. Gum recession may not sound like it is much of a problem, but actually, without treatment, gum recession can cause your teeth to become loose or even can result in tooth loss.
Traditionally, gum grafting gum surgery was the only treatment. Gum surgery is invasive, painful, has difficult postoperative symptoms such as pain, bleeding swelling and having to eat soft foods for an extended period of time. Gum surgery does effectively treat gum recession, and of course, it’s better than having your teeth loosen or fall out. And up until recently, gum surgery was the only option.
The best solution for gum recession is the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Technique and we offer it to everyone in Salt Lake City at our Sugar House dentist office.
The Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Technique
Dr. Theurer of Theurer Family Dental in Sugar House is the only dentist in the area to offer the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Technique as an alternative to gum surgery. This technique, simply put, is a small needle that makes a pinprick hole in your gums. Using Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Technique specialized instruments, Dr. Theurer pulls the gums from the teeth and the bone and moves the gums to where they need to be. Then, collagen strips are inserted into the hole that keep the gums in place until your body can grow collagen in the gums.
