In the past, treating severe gum recession required grafting surgery, an extremely painful procedure because it harvests gum tissue from the palate of your mouth to correct the recessed areas. While the scalpel, cutting and stitches are scary indeed, the worst part for most patients is the enduring pain stemming from the tissue that is removed from the roof of the mouth.
Gum recession is an all too common problem today. Many patients have had their recession treated with the painful grafting procedure because, in the past, it was their only option. Fortunately, the amazing advancements in modern dentistry allow us to now correct even the most complex issues in the least invasive manner possible. Gum recession treatment is a perfect example of how modern dentistry is allowing people to achieve the smile of their dreams without subjecting themselves to scary and painful surgeries.
The short video below perfectly illustrates how the harvesting of gum tissue, which was necessary with the old palatal grafting surgery, can cause extreme, enduring pain. It then shows how the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Technique is revolutionizing the way gum recession is corrected by eliminating the need for a tissue graft:
Dr. Barotz has been treating gum recession since 1980. Until recently, he would always wait until it was absolutely necessary to recommend treating recession because of the painful ordeal grafting surgery put his patients through. Why subject someone to weeks of misery and agony unless the status of their oral health dictates it? But now, with the emergence of the Pinhole Technique, Dr. Barotz is recommending his patients correct their gum recession with much greater frequency. In this article on DentistryIQ.com, Dr. Tina Beck of San Diego explains how the Pinhole Technique allowed her to treat a patient who was previously deterred by the idea of palatal grafting surgery.
