You should take a good, hard look at your teeth every once in a while. This allows you to discover problems you may not necessarily feel yet. This is how many people catch the signs of gum recession. Gum recession is a serious oral health issue you do not want to delay treatment for.

Causes of Receding Gums

Most people will notice receding gums after developing gum disease. This occurs when you do not adequately clean your teeth enough. You need to brush and floss every day to lower your risk of dental issues. However, some people will develop receding gum lines as a result of genetics. Some people simply have thinner gum tissue, which increases the likelihood of inflammation.

Symptoms of Receding Gums

The primary symptom of gum recession is that your teeth will appear longer. However, other symptoms will come up over time. You may experience an increased sensitivity to hot and cold foods due to your tooth roots now being exposed. If you do nothing over a prolonged period of time, then you may even start losing teeth.

Advantages of the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique

The Pinhole Surgical Technique is a minimally-invasive procedure that offers numerous benefits compared to receding gum treatments of the past. There is minimal discomfort during the recovery period. There is also a lower risk of complications because Dr. Jacqueline Subka does not use sutures or scalpels for the treatment. This leads to less bleeding and discomfort when you are sitting in the dentist’s chair. It is far less invasive than standard gum grafting.
