How Does the Gum Rejuvenation Technique Work?
Our Gum Rejuvenation Surgery Restores Charlotte Smiles
For a long time now the only solution for receding gums was gum grafting. Gum grafting includes a painful and slow healing procedure caused by taking skin from the roof of the mouth and grafting it to the gums. Healing times have been up to three weeks (or longer) and included a fair amount of discomfort and inconvenience. The gum rejuvenation technique is a game changer in addressing receding gums and is utilized by very few dentists in the Myers Park area because it is such a new technique. Just so you are aware, the gum rejuvenation treatment is completely safe and is actually less invasive and traumatic than traditional gum grafting.
The Gum Rejuvenation Procedure In Charlotte
- Consultation | During your initial visit to our Myers Park and Ballantyne area you will love how Dr. Bowman partners with you to help you determine if the gum rejuvenation technique is the best solution for you. Gum grafting is an option as well, but in almost all cases the gum rejuvenation surgery should get you the same or better results.
- Treatment | The actual gum rejuvenation technique involves putting a tiny “pinhole” in the gum above the tooth to be treated. A special instrument is inserted in this hole (no scalpels or cuts!) and the gum is loosened, then positioned in the desired location. Once the gums are positioned properly, collagen is inserted in the gum to hold it in place while it heals.
- Healing | A huge benefit of gum rejuvenation surgery is no cutting or grafting occurs and healing time can literally take less than a day. In some procedures the patient is able to eat dinner like normal the same day! No days on end of eating pudding and no long-term, painful recuperation time.
- Check up | Gum rejuvenation surgery is so minimally invasive and safe that there is little chance of major healing issues. However, Dr. Bowman will want to make sure you are completely happy with the results and that the procedure was effective.
Gum grafting is no longer the only solution to treating receding gums. Charlotte dentist Dr. Bowman is thrilled to offer the gum rejuvenation treatment to his wonderful patients in the Myers Park, Ballantyne and surrounding area. Gum rejuvenation surgery is another great breakthrough in dental technology and we are at the forefront in providing the most comfortable and effective dentistry.
