Raleigh Gum Surgery

Contact Spectrum Family Dentistry today to learn more about our dental services.

As you age, your gum tissue recedes and makes your teeth appear longer and uneven. While this might just seem like an unsightly aesthetic issue, receding gums can cause various health problems. Whether the recession is from aging or periodontal disease, you might need gum surgery to restore the appearance and health of your gums.

Dr. Lei Shi and our team of qualified dental assistants at Spectrum Family Dentistry offer gum surgery to restore your smile and oral health. Consider reaching out to schedule a new patient consultation.

What Is Pinhole Gum Surgery?

Pinhole surgery offers a primary solution for receding gums and periodontal diseases. Through a precise procedure that adjusts the placement and health of your gums, you can avoid a bone graft or more intensive treatments.

Symptoms of Receding Gums

Knowing the warning signs of receding gums can help you take action before it’s too late. Some of the main symptoms include:

  • Pus between your gums
  • Red or purple gums
  • Bad taste in your mouth
  • Tooth loss
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Pain while eating hard or soft foods

The Pinhole Gum Surgery Process

During pinhole gum surgery, our dental experts use special tools to readjust the placement of your gums. Once we position the gums perfectly over your teeth, we use collagen to bind the new position. Finally, after a short healing process and some check-up appointments, we ensure your surgery was successful.

The Pinhole Gum Surgery Process

There are many benefits to pinhole surgery that make it superior to other options. Some of these benefits include:

  • Less invasive
  • Less painful
  • Faster healing times
  • Efficient treatment
  • Effectively protects your tooth and gum health
