For many men and women, the thought of gum surgery
causes anxiety. However, it is important to realize that with today’s advances in dental technology, it is possible to successfully administer receding gums treatment in Denver, NC
that is very minimally invasive.
Dr. Monte McCourt treats patients of all ages to help them understand the gum surgery options available to them. While not every person is a candidate for every treatment, there is almost always a convenient, acceptable solution for any case involving gum recession.
Two of the most commonly used methods to address receding gums include:
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™
– This technique was developed by famed dental professional Dr. Chao and requires that Dr. McCourt only make a small hole in the patient’s gum tissues. By entering this opening with special instruments and repositioning recessed gum tissue, Dr. McCourt can help restore the natural look of the gums. This method requires no sutures and enables multiple teeth to be treated in one appointment.
Gum Grafting – Dr. McCourt may suggest that you have a gum graft, whereby samples of gum tissue are taken from one part of the mouth (or from a donor) and surgically implanted in the areas where the gums have receded. This surgery does often require two surgical sites, but is still considered effective.
Gum Recession Is a Solvable Oral Health Problem
Regardless of why your gums have begun to recede, Dr. McCourt can help you regain the smile you want to see in the mirror. He can also work with you to devise a plan to address the root causes of your gum recession, whether it is due to aggressive brushing techniques or progressive periodontal disease that has gone unchecked.
