What To Do If You Have Receding Gums?

If you have receding gums, you know the pain and frustration associated with your gums as more and more of your gums recedes and pulls back from the tooth. Receding gums is a common problem among our patients, and because of that, Dr. Helyne has started doing Pinhole procedure, which is a pain-free procedure to pull down the gums and restore function.

Causes of receding gums

  • Periodontal Disease. This is a bacterial gum infection that can destroy your gum’s tissue and the supporting bone. Gum disease is the primary cause of receding gums today.
  • Genes. Just like anything in your body – your genes play a part in how your body develops and how it reacts to certain things. If people in your family or extended family have receding gums then it may be something for you to watch out for.
  • The way you brush your teeth. If you are brushing your teeth aggressively this can cause you to wear down your gums and cause gum lose. If you think this could be you, the best thing to do is to ask your dentist about ways to brush your teeth.
  • Dental Care. Getting routine dental care is key to making sure your teeth and gums are in at their healthiest.

Pinhole Procedure

With our new pinhole procedure – there are many new benefits. The biggest benefit is that you won’t need sutures because the procedure doesn’t involve opening up the gums, therefore recovery time is faster, involves less pain, and more often times you can see instant results.

Receding gums start to become a health concern, and problem when the gums recede so much so that you are having pain and teeth sensitivity. Contact Paradise Dental today to learn more about our pinhole procedure. Contact us on our website or give us a call at 781-780-2246 today!

First Class Facility. Modern equipment. Professional service. This is what I have come to expect from Drs' Steve and Helyne and their entire staff.

It's the fanciest dentist I have ever been to. I really like the moisturizing heated hand treatment they offer while you're getting your teeth cleaned. They have lots of other little extras that make this place stand out above the rest. The cleaning and exam were pretty typical, but no complaints. I'm always wary of getting advice to replace fillings when they aren't bothering me, but that didn't happen.

Great experience as always!!! State of the art office with a friendly and professional staff. I would not trust any other practice with my dental care.

My first visit consisted of a consultation with Dr, Helyne Hamelburg whom I found to be very calm and relaxing as I am not a fan of any dental procedure. I will be having gum surgery in a few weeks and am actually not fearing the procedure which I have been putting off for years. Office is certainly state of the art which I had never experienced anything like it. Glad she was recommended to me by another Doctor who knew she would be a good fit for me.

The providers, hygienists, the entire staff are wonderful. I can't recommend them enough. They are efficient, courteous, and the office is inviting. I never thought I would say this about a dental office, but I get relaxed there. You get treated like your the only patient they have.
