Two Ways We Treat Common Periodontal Issues

Recession? Teeth That Appear Elongated? Sensitive Root Surfaces?

Here at the Periodontal Health Center we provide two services that correct these issues:

 

  1. Connective Tissue Grafting
  2. Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation

 

Connective tissue grafting involves the harvesting of tissue from the roof of the mouth. This graft is used to recreate healthy gum tissue which will cover and attach to sensitive, exposed root surfaces.

Pinhole gum rejuvenation is a minimally invasive procedure which involves creating small holes in the gum tissue. Through these holes the gum tissue is undermined and released so that it can be stretched over the exposed root surfaces. Rarely does this procedure involve incisions or stitches.Both of these procedures generally achieve excellent results.

At the Periodontal Health Center your doctor will evaluate which technique is best suited for your particular issue to ensure optimal success.
