Pinhole Surgical Technique
The pinhole surgical technique is a minimally invasive, fast, and effective treatment option for gum recession. Prior to the procedure, a local anesthetic is used on the patient to minimize any discomfort. From there, The pinhole surgical technique involves Dr. Silberg taking a small needle and creating a ‘pinhole’ in the patient’s gum tissue. After that, specialized tools are used to loosen the patient’s gum tissue. From that point, Dr. Silberg can then cover the patient’s exposed roots by repositioning the gums.
Anti-anxiety agents, such as nitrous oxide, or sedatives may help you relax during dental visits and often may be used along with local anesthetics. Dentists also can use these agents to induce conscious sedation, in which the patient achieves a relaxed state during treatment, but can respond to speech or touch. Sedatives can be administered before, during or after dental procedures by mouth, inhalation or injection.
Gum Disease Treatment
Gingivitis and periodontitis are the two most common forms of gum disease. Gingivitis is an inflammation of the gums and is reversible. It does not cause destruction of the tissues that support the teeth. In contrast, periodontitis involves inflammation of the gums and a destruction of connective tissue and bone that is largely irreversible. If left untreated, gingivitis can lead to periodontitis.
