New York, June 24, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cosmetic dentist, Dr. Lana Rozenberg, is proud to announce an innovative, minimally invasive gum recession surgery, pinhole gum rejuvenation. Unlike typical gum grafting, the pinhole surgical technique has a recovery time of one day, allowing patients to resume normal activities almost immediately.
Gum recession can be caused by poor dental maintenance or overly abrasive brushing. Although gum recession is a common problem, especially in adults over the age of forty, it is frequently left untreated. "Too often patients reject gum grafting because it's an invasive procedure requiring a long recovery time and significant discomfort," explains Dr. Rozenberg. "Pinhole gum rejuvenation is the latest procedure available for gum restoration and I'm very excited to offer this technique to my patients. It's faster, less invasive, and provides instant results with no downtime."
Unlike traditional gum grafting, the new, minimally invasive, pinhole gum rejuvenation surgery for gum repair requires no cutting, stitching or downtime. Conventional gum grafting typically required cosmetic dentists to cut a flap of skin from the roof of your mouth. Connective tissue from that area is then extracted and stitched to the surrounding area of the exposed root. The pinhole surgical technique for gum restoration, however, corrects receding gums through a pinhole sized insertion point in your gum, using a pin-like surgical instrument to loosen gum tissue. As the gum is repositioned atop the root, collagen strips are placed under the gums to keep the relocated gum in its new position. Since an incision is made and sutures are required, it is common to experience discomfort for a week or more and patients' diets are often restricted to soft, cool foods. The gum rejuvenation surgery takes less than an hour to complete and the tiny pinhole disappears within a day. Patients will experience instant results after gum repair with minimal swelling, bleeding or pain.
Dr. Rozenberg notes caring for your gums is an essential task in maintaining your overall well-being. Besides discomfort caused by exposed roots, gum disease has been linked to diabetes, heart disease and stroke. In addition to tooth sensitivity, gum recession can cause bad breath, inflamed gums, gum bleeding, and in advanced stages, tooth loss. If you've considered traditional gum grafting surgery but felt the extensive procedure was too invasive and time consuming for your needs, pinhole gum rejuvenation surgery may be an ideal choice for you.
