Gum recession is a prevalent problem among adults. In fact, 79 percent of men and women have some degree of receding gums. Of those, 14 percent have a severe and permanent case that requires urgent dental treatment. There are treatment alternatives for restoring your gums to a healthy state. Here at Wall Centre Dental, Dr. Parviz Roshanzamir and his staff are highly skilled at restoring receding gums with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique in Vancouver BC. This innovative procedure changes the way that gum recession is treated.  

Common Causes of Gum Recession  

Receding gums expose the root structure of the tooth, creating susceptibility to decay and other problems that can harm teeth along the gum line and beneath it. This progressive condition can affect the quality of your smile and decrease your self-confidence. Once your gums recede, they are permanently damaged. Some of the common causes of gum recession include:  

·         Tobacco use
·         Lip and tongue piercings
·         Genetics
·         Poor dental hygiene
·         Teeth grinding or clenching
·         Improper brushing technique  

Maintaining regular oral hygiene and healthy lifestyle practices can help prevent gum recession.  

Benefits of the Pinhole® Surgical Technique

Even though patients may feel embarrassed about receding gums, they may not be ready to undergo the traditional treatment requiring extensive surgery using soft tissue grafts. The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique in Vancouver, BC can be very useful for restoring the gum line, and is a minimally invasive alternative to gum grafting surgery. There are no grafts, incisions or sutures; the procedure only involves adjusting the existing tissue. Our patients at Wall Centre Dental enjoy immediate cosmetic benefits from this method and see a noticeable and significant difference. Gums heal quickly from this procedure, and the results are permanent (as long as you maintain your oral health).
