At Green Dentistry in San Francisco CA, patients ask us a lot of questions. One of the most common ones we get is about gum recession. These patients often ask us if it’s possible to treat this very common condition. While dentistry offers several options, our mission is to always stay ahead of the curve and continue learning about the most advanced, comfortable dental procedures for our patients.
In this spirit, we offer pinhole gum rejuvenation as a more holistic, less invasive option. While procedures like bone regeneration and tissue grafting can be effective, they require extensive trauma to the mouth in the form of a multi-step surgical process. The recovery time alone is likely to upset your mind-body balance and leave you feeling exhausted, anxious, and pained.
On the other hand, pinhole gum rejuvenation is a scalpel-free, suture-free process. Dr. Patel inserts highly advanced, specialized tools through a minuscule “pinhole” made just above the tooth. She repositions the tissue slightly to recover the teeth, and fastens the gum tissue in place through the use of diminutive collagen strips.
The whole process can be completed in one appointment. Ask yourself what is better for your physical and mental health: a long, arduous surgical procedure with several steps, or a simple, same-day dental treatment with fantastic results?
If you’re tired of invasive, traumatizing dental work that leaves you feeling more insecure than ever, Green Dentistry in San Francisco CA is the right practice for you. We focus on the crucial relationship between your oral health and your overall wellness. Patients from Sebastapol, Menlo Park, and the Peninsula come to us for gum disease treatment, general dentistry, and cosmetic options. Contact us today!
