Therapeutic Gum Rejuvenation with Smileology™
When your body senses threats like infections, lacerations, or foreign bacteria, it is designed to rush support to try to heal and protect the area being threatened. The inflammatory response in healthy individuals kills off bacteria and helps to speed healing.
Unfortunately, when it comes to infections in your mouth, the infection response complicates your dental health. When your body detects plaque, tartar and bacteria in your mouth, instead of actively attacking the bacteria, it starts to protect itself by backing away.
If the early stages of gum disease are not addressed, gums will recede away from the teeth, triggering a variety of other oral health problems.
Pinhole Gum Therapy
Receding gums can weaken your teeth, cause root damage and even leading to tooth loss. Through Pinhole Gum Therapy, receding gums are stabilized without using traditional surgical procedures such as cutting, grafting and stitches. This minimally invasive procedure can restore years to your smile and improve your overall health.
Gingivitis is often painless at first, making it difficult to diagnose without regular dental checkups. Inflammation of the gums can be a potentially serious condition, which is why it’s vital to get regular dental exams from Smileology™.
If you have been diagnosed with or are concerned you may have gingivitis, our dental team offers a range of treatments to reverse or stop the progression of gum disease. If you are in the early stages of gingivitis, most treatment options are non-surgical procedures.
Gum Graft Surgery
Gum grafting is a common periodontal procedure performed at Smileology™ by Dr. Broutin and Dr. Nakarmi. This procedure is commonly used to treat gum recession. Once completed, the soft tissue surrounding your teeth can begin to naturally regenerate, restoring a healthier smile. Benefits include reduced sensitivity, an improved smile appearance and overall improvement of gum health.
Chao PinholeⓇ Gum Surgery
Using the minimally-invasive Chao Pinhole® surgical technique, our Smileology™ dentists can rejuvenate receding gums without a scalpel or sutures. This technique is designed to help patients restore their oral health and provide optimum aesthetics to their gum line.
The Chao Pinhole® surgical technique is the first minimally invasive procedure to treat gum recession and gum disease effectively. The procedure is virtually pain-free and requires minimal recovery time.
If periodontal disease has affected your mouth, your jawbone may be too weak to support a dental implant you need.
In cases like this, our Smileology™ dental team will often recommend natural bone regeneration (also known as bone grafting) to promote healthy bone growth and strengthen your jawbone. Over time your jawbone can regain enough bone mass to support a dental implant.
