Through a small hole made by a needle, Dr. Titensor uses specially designed instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue and glide it over the receded part of the tooth. Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
Once again, in his ongoing effort to bring the most current dental procedures to Flower Mound, Texas, Dr. Steven Titensor learned a new technique to correct receding gum lines: The Pinhole Surgical Technique! Previous dental procedures involved gum grafting, an extremely painful way to correct your receding gums. Now, with The Pinhole Surgical Technique, Dr. Titensor can correct your receding gums with minor discomfort.
Over the years, your gums may recede, causing your smile to appear too toothy or leaving your teeth looking elongated. In addition to effecting appearance, the recession of your gums can cause dental problems. The roots of your teeth may become exposed and unprotected or an opening between the gums and your teeth can form. The opening can allow bacteria to appear causing disease or even extensive damage to your teeth and the supporting bone or surrounding soft tissue. If you think your gums are receding, call Titensor Dental for a dental check up. If after your dental exam, Dr. Titensor determines that, in fact, your gums are receding, he may suggest The Pinhole Surgical Technique to correct the recession and prevent future dental issues.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique is a new procedure (both scalpel-free and suture-free) to correct receding gums. Previously, dentists would take tissue from the roof of your mouth and then stitch up that area. Next, they would need to stitch the graft to the gum that was receding – quite the painful process. With The Pinhole Surgical Technique, no suturing is required! Dr. Titensor makes the minutest pinhole in your gum. He has newly developed tools that allow him to artistically move your gum tissue to its original position. He then injects a unique collagen substance to stabilize your gums.
If you have receding gums, in the past, Dr. Titensor would have had to perform a gum graft – an extremely painful procedure. Now, with The Pinhole Surgical Technique, he can correct your receding gums with minor discomfort. Again, Dr. Titensor and his dental team's first concern are for their patient's comfort. The Pinhole Surgical Technique offers the following benefits:
Again, the greatest benefit of The Pinhole Surgical Technique is the lessen amount of discomfort you will experience in correcting your receding gums.
