The Gum Rejuvenation technique is a scalpel-free procedure and minimally invasive for correcting gum recession. Through a small hole made by a needle, specially designed instruments are used to gently loosen the gum tissue and glide it over the receded part of the tooth. Patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding)and are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
What is gum recession?
Gum recession refers to the loss of gum tissue along the gumline. This can occur as a result of periodontal disease (gingivitis, periodontitis, advanced periodontitis), the natural aging process, or harmful abrasive habits during brushing of the teeth.
Why should gum recession be taken seriously?
When gum recession occurs, the root of the tooth is exposed. This means that tooth decay and other problems can affect the teeth along the gumline and beneath it. Since healthy gums are essential for a healthy mouth, getting gum recession treated is important for lasting dental wellness.
How does the Gum Rejuvenation Technique differ from traditional gum grafting?
Traditional gum recession treatments involve the use of soft tissue grafts in order to restore the gumline. This soft tissue would be sutured in place and would join with existing gum tissue as it healed.
How is the procedure performed?
A needle is used to make a small hole in the patient’s existing gum tissue. Through this pinhole, instruments are used to gently loosen the gum tissue. These tools help expand and slide the gumline to cover the exposed root structure.
There are no grafts and no incisions needed.It simply involves the adjustment of the existing tissue.
