Gum disease is a serious dental condition that forms after years of poor oral hygiene. The lack of proper cleaning causes the gums to become infected. If the infection is allowed to stay in the mouth long enough, then it will eat away and destroy your gums. Gum disease can potentially cause you to lose your teeth, but it is also easily cured if treated in a timely manner. You will have no problem stopping your gum disease if you choose to treat it with gum rejuvenation treatments with Dr. Wendy Willoughby, DDS.
Gum rejuvenation treatments are designed to repair your gum after they have receded while suffering from gum disease. It is extremely hard to look your best when you have receding gums because they age your smile. Luckily, this major dental problem can be fixed with a simple, minimally-invasive procedure. Once you stop your gum disease with this revolutionary treatment, you will finally be able to display the beautiful smile of your dreams.
Our gum rejuvenation treatments at the office of Dr. Wendy Willoughby, DDS involve the use of the Chao Pinhole® technique. During this procedure, a small pinhole is made in the gums. A small instrument is then used in this pinhole to move the gum tissues back to their normal position. The pinhole is so tiny that it will close on its own without the need for stitches.
The entire procedure typically takes only minutes to carry out. It will take a little bit of time for the pinhole on your gums to disappear. Your gums will be fully healed when you can no longer see the pinhole.
This gum rejuvenation treatment is a permanent solution for your gum disease. While you will not have to worry about gum disease in the treated areas ever again, it is still possible to experience a problem on a different section of your gums. Aging and brushing too hard can make the gums recede. If this happens, then you can easily cure your problem with another minimally-invasive gum rejuvenation treatment.
