CHERRY HILL, N.J., Nov. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The well-respected periodontist team of Canal and Calem Periodontics,
Receding gums are a frequent concern among many patients who visit a periodontist because the condition can lead to more serious problems. Although sensitive teeth is typically one of the first indicators of gum recession, other concerns can quickly follow. These include everything from uneven gumlines to exposed tooth roots. Without intervention, receding gums can lead to rampant tooth decay, gum disease and the loss of natural teeth.
Traditionally, gum grafting has been used to rectify receding gums in Cherry Hill, NJ. Conventional gum grafting uses scalpels and sutures to attach gum tissue to the area of recession. Although effective, recovery time may last for days or weeks.
A more advanced alternative to traditional gum grafts is the Pinhole Surgical Technique. This minimally invasive technique was developed to minimize trauma to the gums. Using specialized tools, Drs. Canal and Calem create a small hole in the gums through which they adjust existing gum tissue to cover any points of gum recession. By manipulating the gums into a healthy, natural position without the need for any cuts or sutures, periodontists can reduce patient recovery and offer immediate outcomes.
Drs. Canal and Calem do not require professional referrals to explore the Pinhole Surgical Technique with new patients. For that reason, anyone with receding gums in Cherry Hill, NJ, is encouraged to contact their office at 856-439-1200.
