Innovative gum recession treatment available through dentist near Walnut Creek, CA
Regular dental care is essential to maintaining the health of teeth and gums. To obtain the maximum benefits from such care, regular visits to your dentist should be maintained. Dr. Jamil Alkhoury at Brentwood Family Dental is your solution in dentistry if you are near the area of Walnut Creek, CA. Through regular visits, conditions can be caught early before they become a big problem, helping you maintain a healthy mouth and flawless smile.
One area that can be easily overlooked if you are not receiving regular care is the gum line. Gum recession has multiple causes, as well as multiple effects if the situation is not resolved. Causes include the simple aging process, heredity factors, personal dental care that is too aggressive, or gingivitis, a precursor to the more serious condition of periodontal disease or gum disease. The problems with gums can include pain from inflammation caused by bacteria buildup, and can become as severe as losing teeth because of damage to the gum structure. Gum disease can have other effects on overall patient health that extend beyond one’s mouth. Sometimes cosmetic appearance is affected, as well, leading to embarrassment or an attempt to hide what should be a beautiful smile.
If gum complications begin to affect your health and appearance, Dr. Alkhoury has the experience to provide you with an innovative gum lift rejuvenation. Treatment provided in his office is more advanced than methods previously used in dentistry that were more invasive and led to a great degree of discomfort. Through the Pinhole Surgical Technique, a pinhole is made to the patient’s affected gum area. Special instruments are used to loosen the gum tissue and reposition it to a healthier and more visually-appealing level. Gum recession treatment is quickly performed and offers immediate results. With no cutting or sutures required, patients experience virtually no pain and need little to no recovery time.
If you are in or near Walnut Creek, CA and want to learn more about the Pinhole Surgical Technique and other state-of-the-art procedures that are employed in our office, contact Brentwood Family Dental and schedule your routine care appointment. We look forward to helping you achieve the healthiest and happiest smile possible.
