The Pinhole Surgical Technique in Ventura is the revolutionary procedure that can help receding gums without invasive techniques. However, not all dental practitioners are trained and certified to provide patients with the Pinhole Surgical Technique in Ventura.
Invented by John Chao DDS, this amazing technique is scalpel and suture free, is the modern way to correct gum recession and is now available from Goldenberg Family Dentistry in Ventura.
What Causes Gum Recession
Bacterial gum infection from periodontal diseases will destroy your gum tissues right along with the support bone that holds the teeth in place. Periodontal disease, the more severe form of gum disease, is the number one cause of gum recession.
Thirty percent of the population could be predisposed. When it comes to gum disease, research shows that genetics could play a part in gum disease regardless of oral hygiene habits.
Overly aggressive tooth brushing is another cause of gum recession. If you brush too hard, or the wrong way, you could wear away the enamel on your teeth that could lead to gum recession.
Improper brushing, flossing, rinsing and inadequate dental care can also cause gum recession. If you don’t floss or use an antibacterial mouthwash, you could be dealing with tartar, hardened plaque that can only be removed by a professional cleaning. If left to its own devices, tartar can cause gum recession.
Hormones can also play a role in gum disease and gum recession. Fluctuations during puberty, pregnancy, menstruation and menopause could make your gums more sensitive and vulnerable to gum recession.
When it comes to dental care, prevention is the key. Schedule regular checkups with Goldenberg Family Dental, make sure you are brushing properly and don’t forget to swap out your toothbrush every two or three months or when it begins to show wear.
Other ways to prevent gum recession include:
- Quit smoking
- Eat a healthy diet
- Monitor any mouth changes
