If you have suffered from gum disease for any amount of time, you may not feel completely happy with the way your gums look after your treatment. We invite you to learn about gum rejuvenation techniques that are offered here in the office of Dr. Wendy Wiloughby, DDS.
When most people think about having a healthy smile, they immediately think about having straight, white teeth. They think about having issues like chips, cracks, and stains taken care of in order to give a person their best bile. Of course, all of these things do contribute to having an attractive and healthy smile. However, your gums also play an extremely important role, not only in having an attractive smile but also in having a healthy one.
Gum recession is one of the biggest problems that people have after gum disease. This can also occur because a person is getting older or because they use a lot of force when brushing their teeth. Gum recession means that your gums have moved back and no longer cover your teeth in the same way. If the root structure of your teeth becomes exposed, you can experience a wide variety of tooth decay issues. You need healthy gums in order to have a healthy smile.
One option that is becoming widely used for gum rejuvenation is a pinhole surgical technique that leads to natural looking, long-lasting results. It is a minimally invasive treatment that requires little downtime. Dr. Wiloughby uses a pinhole technique, allowing you to return to your daily activities as quickly as possible.
How do you know the kind of results that you can get from gum rejuvenation? We can only answer this question by having you visit us for a consultation. Our dentist will closely examine your teeth and gums. If necessary, the dentist will be able to address gum disease or other problems that you may currently be experiencing. From there, the dentist will be able to offer suggestions on different gum rejuvenation treatments that are available.
At the office of Dr. Wendy Wiloughby, DDS, we are concerned about the health of our clients. When gum disease is treated, and gum rejuvenation techniques are used, you will have a healthy mouth and the smile to go with it. We would be happy to meet with individuals who are less than satisfied with the way their teeth and gums look. Contact us today at Chestnut Family Dentistry to schedule your consultation.
