Successful Gum Recession Treatment in Independence, OH
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is a minimally invasive procedure that allows Dr. Bilski to restore healthy gum levels without scalpels or sutures. Your existing gum tissue is manipulated, loosening the tissue, so that it may be moved to cover your exposed roots. This innovative technique delivers immediate results with minimized discomfort and downtime. Multiple teeth can be treated in one session.
Gum Grafting Procedures
Gum grafts are procedures in which tissue is collected from another portion of the patient’s mouth, usually the palate, and then transferred to the treatment site and sutured into place. Over time, the new tissue heals and integrates with the existing tissue, covering your sensitive teeth and restoring the gum line with healthy gum tissue.
Pocket Depth Reduction Surgery
Pocket depth reduction surgery is used to restore gum tissue to healthier levels while treating periodontal disease. With this method, plaque, calculus, and bacteria that cause gum disease are cleared from the periodontal pockets. The bone under the gum line is then smoothed and reshaped to encourage reattachment of the gum tissue. The gum tissue is pulled into a tighter, more desirable position, sutured into place, and the excess tissue is trimmed away.
