Treatment Options for Receding Gums

Gum recession happens so gradually over time, that many people do not realize they suffer from this condition until they start to experience the adverse effects. Once your gums start to recede, they will not grow back. It is necessary that you seek treatment from a dental professional to restore your oral health. Dr. Jacqueline Subka is a periodontist offering treatment for receding gums in Thousand Oaks, CA including the Pinhole Surgical Technique™. The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is a ‘breakthrough’ technique for gum recession that provides a minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum recession surgery.

Seeking treatment for gum recession is important because without the protective barrier that your gum tissue provides, bacteria can colonize and rapidly decay your softer root structures. Additionally, gum recession is often a result of periodontal disease. If left untreated, periodontal disease can cause devastating tooth loss, bone loss, and complicate severe systemic health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, and some forms of cancer. An infected, uneven gum line not only frequently causes extreme tooth sensitivity, but also lowers the quality of life due to reduced health and self-confidence.

Gum Recession Treatment

Gum graft procedure

Tissue from a nearby site, donor material, or from the roof of your mouth can be grafted to areas where you have low tissue volume.

The Pinhole Surgical Technique™

This is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum recession surgery. It requires no large incisions or stitches.

Periodontal Therapy

Thorough cleaning below the gum line with scaling and root planing among other techniques may be necessary prior to treating gum recession if this is the causative factor.

Switching to a soft-bristled or electric toothbrush

Aggressive brushing with medium or hard bristled toothbrushes can wear away your gum tissue.
