When researching biological dentists recently I discovered something so amazing and fantastic in the area of gum rejuvenation.
A simple procedure that is done with just a pinhole entry heals much quickly and without the pain associated with typical gum surgery.
I'm familiar with regular gum surgery.
I was married to a periodontist so I knew about the procedure.
I remember hearing conversations with patients that called with pain in the roof of their mouth.
It's a portion of their palate was used to replace their receding gums and it hurts during the healing phase.
Sometimes cadaver tissue can be used if the patient allows.
But many times the patient's own palate is used to replace lost gum tissue.
Ever burn the roof of your mouth?
It hurts for a while!
Imagine have a piece of your palate excised and waiting for it to heal afterward.
A retainer that covers the palate has to be used to cover the raw area or the patient can't eat.
With the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation, the patient can eat almost everything immediately because it's only a pinprick size wound that the patient is recovering from.
What an amazing new procedure, it only takes SKILL!
If you are bothered by sensitive teeth or even for cosmetic reasons, this procedure may be for you.
I have not had it done, but looking at the procedure and hearing comments from patients, I will be recommending it.
I may even have Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation done myself on a couple of my teeth that is showing a bit of age.
