LOMBARD, Ill., September 25, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Patients with elongated or sensitive teeth due to receding gums
Gum grafting is one of the most common treatments offered to patients with sensitive teeth from receding gums in Lombard, IL. During the commonplace procedure, soft tissue from the roof of the patient's mouth is surgically removed, then attached to the receded gum tissue with sutures. The process is invasive, can include a long recovery and can be uncomfortable for the patient. Dr. Singh offers a minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum grafting. Instead of removing tissue from one area of the mouth and attaching it to another area with stitches, he uses the Pinhole Surgical Technique to correct gum recession without making a single scalpel incision.
During the Pinhole procedure, Dr. Singh gains access to the inner surface of the gum tissue through a small hole about the size of a pinprick that he creates in the gums at the receded site. He uses special tools to gently break the connection between the gum tissue and the teeth so he can easily glide the gums downward (or upward if he's working on the lower teeth). The gums stay in their new position and naturally reattach to the teeth over time. No sutures are required to hold them in place, so recovery time is minimal. Due to the speed with which the procedure can be performed, Dr. Singh can often treat multiple areas in the same office visit.
Dr. Singh encourages patients with sensitive teeth and embarrassment from receding gums in Lombard, IL, to schedule a consultation for the Pinhole Surgical Technique. Patients can easily make an appointment by calling Periodontal Implant Associates at 630-424-9404.
