What is gum recession?

Receding gums are surprisingly common  — and tend to become particularly noticeable as we get a little older. That’s because receding gums don’t happen overnight, they tend to come on slowly.

The first sign of a problem might be teeth that are a little more sensitive to hot and cold foods. You might also notice your teeth look a little “longer” than they used to. Both of these issues are the result of gum tissue shrinking and exposing more of the tooth’s root.

Gum recession is both a cosmetic issue and one that can affect your health. To learn more about Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation therapy or to talk with a dentist about other gum disease treatment options, contact us today.

Dangers of Gum Recession

Gum recession may be caused by gum disease, brushing your teeth too hard, a misaligned bite, or even just the natural aging process. But left untreated, gum recession can have serious consequences, including:

  • Further increased tooth sensitivity, caused when the tooth’s root becomes exposed
  • Increased risk of tooth decay and advanced gum disease
  • Added wear and tear on your teeth
  • Eventual tooth loss

Unfortunately, surgical gum recession treatments were known for being painful, requiring long healing times, and producing inconsistent and disappointing results. Many people avoided treatment altogether!

But our Gum Rejuvenation treatment is not surgery.

How Gum Rejuvenation Works

With Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation, there is no scalpel and no stitches. Instead, high-tech tools are used to gently reposition the gum tissue. The procedure even increases blood flow to the area to facilitate rapid healing.

The treatment takes less than 2 hours. It’s much less invasive and much more comfortable than any other gum recession treatment available.

Here at Greater Long Island Dental, Dr. Rogers performs this procedure. He was trained by the inventor of the procedure Dr. Chau at the Pinhole Institute in California.

Drawbacks of Gum Recession Surgery

Have you been told that surgery is the only way to treat gum recession? Are you worried that you’ll need a “gum graft”? These are just a few of the drawbacks associated with traditional gum disease treatment:

  • Longer healing times - Surgery can take days to heal. Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation treatment heals in less than a day.
  • Painful recovery - Because Pinhole heals so fast you probably won’t need anything more than a few aspirin!
  • Inconsistent results - You may need multiple surgeries and even then the results might not be as good as you hoped for. With Pinhole, you’ll see amazing results as soon as the next day!
  • Infection and complications - Surgical treatments damage healthy gum tissue and carry a risk of infection. Pinhole actually promotes healthier gums and has a much lower rate of post-treatment complications.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to recover from Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation?

Most people will feel back to normal the day after the Pinhole Surgical Technique. Since there’s no scalpel and no sutures, there’s very little that needs to heal. Compare this to invasive gum grafting surgery, which can take a month or longer to recover from.

How much does Pinhole gum restoration cost?

Pinhole therapy starts at $1,200 per treated site. Some dental insurance plans may cover a small portion of your investment.

What can I eat after my treatment?

Following your gum rejuvenation treatment, we’ll provide a full list of aftercare instructions. Expect to eat soft foods and avoid the use of a straw. You’ll also have to avoid very hot foods/drinks (coffee, tea, soups) for about a week.

Can a receding gum line be reversed?

Yes! Using Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation therapy, your gum tissue can be gently repositioned to eliminate the appearance of and discomfort caused by receding gums. Take a look at our smile showcase to see our amazing results!

What are the warning signs of gum disease?

In its earliest stages, gum disease often causes no symptoms at all — but it can be diagnosed by a dentist. Only when gum disease has taken hold in your mouth will you experience bleeding gums, chronic bad breath, increased tooth sensitivity, and loose teeth. See a dentist regularly for an exam to monitor you for signs of gum disease.
