Our Highland dental staff isn’t here to just monitor the state of your teeth. We also look at the health and look of the gums. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, is the leading cause of tooth loss and has been connect to problems like diabetes and heart disease.
At Highland Advanced Dental Care, we take pride in resolving your gum problems. Great gum health and set you up for great oral health for the rest of your life. Smaller gums or receding gums can be an eyesore and turn into an oral health crisis. The traditional way to treat your gum recession is with gum grafting. That is no longer the case.
Our office uses a new system called the pinhole technique. Instead of cutting and stitching soft tissue over the receding area, we make a small pinhole in the gums and then manipulate the gums into a better position. Once the gums are in place, we then place collagen strips to keep the gums in place. This procedure is virtually pain-free and has little to no recovery period!
This might sound a bit complicated, so here is a video from a patient who can tell you more about our gum recession treatments.
You can see that our patients are surprised by the convenience and comfort of the procedure. These are two things we pride ourselves on. If you have unresolved gum issues, don’t wait for the problems to persist. Call our office today at 248-329-3552 or use the online form to book a visit.
