If you watched The Doctors TV show this morning you go and eat no doubt wondering if your gum recessions could be the result of brushing too hard? Obviously there is a fine line between having healthy and clean teeth and over brushing with hard bristles. So how do you know what is causing your gum recessions or gum loss? Can you really eliminate receding gums over your lunchtime?
The best way to identify the source of your receding gums is to see your dentist because under brushing can have just as many negative health effects. With that said, it is true that there is a new technique that can restore receding gums without gum grafting, stitches, or extended healing times. The Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ technique featured on The Doctors TV show this morning means that you can have multiple gum recessions eliminated in a matter of an hour. By simply creating a tiny pinhole, your gums are slid back into the correct position and held in place with a little collagen. It has been called the lunchtime gum lift™ because without any grafting or stitches the results are immediate and the healing time is minimized.
The good news is that by utilizing your own gum tissue to restore your receding gums the results look more natural and you can start smiling far sooner than with traditional gum grafting treatments. So many of us struggle with the health ramifications of gum loss but the cosmetic side effects can be just as painful. Too often people either stop smiling altogether or they train themselves how to smile so that their gum recessions don’t show and this is no way to live.
It is quite common for patients to avoid addressing their gum loss because gum grafting or skin grafting sounds far too daunting. Additionally traditional gum grafting can require multiple surgeries over several months and extensive healing time. We are all really busy and most of us live a lifestyle that requires quick results, which is why a minimally invasive technique that restores receding gums is so important.
The pinhole gum rejuvenation™ technique is a great choice for people suffering with gum loss who cannot wait for good results. With that said, Dr. Muslin, a pinhole gum rejuvenation™ dentist reminds us “we have to uncover the source of the receding gums in order for the results to last. We don’t just want to correct the aesthetic problem, we want to identify the cause as well.” This could mean anything from brushing more softly to correcting your bite position to treating any possible infection. Regardless of the source of the problem it is good to know that smiling with confidence and healthy gums could be just your lunchtime away.
