Gum Recession Treatment

Dr. Amanda Juarez on gum grafting Read Transcript

Have your gums pulled back from your teeth, making you self-conscious or even causing you pain? If you think you could benefit from a gum recession treatment, contact Houston Uptown Dentists today.

Our Houston, TX dentist, Dr. Juarez and Dr. Lindskog, are specially trained to help get your gums back where they need to be using either the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique or a gum grafting procedure.

Your Gum Recession Treatment Options

If your gums have receded, we have two oral surgery methods to restore your confidence and your oral health.

The Chao Pinhole Technique is an innovative gum recession treatment. We will create a pinhole in your gums, gently loosen your gums above the affected area, and carefully guide your gums back to their proper position. In many cases, patients heal overnight!

Gum grafting is a tried-and-true method of restoring your gumline. We will take a small piece of tissue and place it where your gums have receded. After a brief healing period, your whole smile, including your gums, will look great!

Comfort Options, Dental Sedation

To ensure your optimum comfort, we will use an anesthetic to numb your mouth before we begin your gum recession treatment. To help relieve any dental anxiety you might feel, we also offer three forms of dental sedation:

  • Nitrous oxide
  • Oral conscious sedation
  • IV sedation

Our calming, soothing team will also help entertain and distract you with:

  • Headphones playing relaxing music
  • Personal movie glasses with Netflix

Potential Reasons For A Gum Recession Treatment

If your gums have receded because of gum disease, we will help restore their health by providing a gum disease treatment first. Here are some other common causes of gum recession:

  • Tobacco use
  • Genetics
  • Certain illnesses
  • Bruxism (grinding/clenching your teeth)
  • Poor occlusion (a bad bite)
  • Toothbrush abrasion

No matter the cause, your trusted Houston, TX dentist can help!
