When the margin of your gum that is around your teeth begins to pull back or wear away, it exposes more of your tooth and its root. This is known as gum recession and it leads to gaps forming between your teeth and the gum line.
Believe it or not, this is a common dental problem that many people don’t realize that they are suffering from, because gum recession occurs gradually. One of the first signs of this condition is sensitivity. You may even notice that your tooth looks a little longer than normal, and that the root of the tooth is yellow and won’t turn white with any sort of whitening. If you think that you are suffering from gum recession, it is not something that you want to ignore. As soon as you notice any sensitivity, make an appointment with Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique & Spa so that you can prevent any further damage to your teeth.
What Leads to Receding Gums?
There are a number of reasons that your gums may begin to recede which include:
- Periodontal diseases
- Aggressive tooth brushing
- Inadequate dental care
- Hormonal changes
- Tobacco products
- Clenching or grinding your teeth
- Misaligned bite
- Crooked teeth
- Lip or tongue piercings

Prevention of Gum Recession is Vital
Brushing and flossing to keep teeth plaque-free is vital to preventing the onset of gum disease. It is also important to visit the dentist regularly for professional cleanings and examinations. If you currently have gum recession, you may need to visit the dentist more often than twice a year. It is important to correct the problem that may be causing your gums to recede such as teeth grinding or a misaligned bite. Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique & Spa will absolutely be able to offer you tips on how to prevent gum recession beyond smoking cessation and eating a healthy diet. You can have a healthy and radiant smile forever by taking care of your teeth now.

Why Gum Recession Should Not Be Ignored
Gum recession exposes more of your teeth when the gum itself wears away. As this occurs, gaps tend to be created between the teeth and gum line, making it easier for disease-causing bacteria to damage more gums, your teeth, and even their supporting bones. Eventually, these teeth can be lost.
Since receding gums occur gradually, many of us don’t realize the problem until we notice our teeth getting more sensitive and one or more teeth looking longer than normal.
Gum recession tends to only get worse over time and should not be ignored. If you think your gums are receding, call or complete the form on this page to schedule an appointment at our Fort Lauderdale / East Broward dental boutique. If warranted, we can use the latest, least invasive technique available, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Rejuvenation Technique, to rejuvenate your gums, prevent further damage, and enhance your smile.
Chao Pinhole® Surgical Rejuvenation Technique Explained
Previously, soft tissue grafting was the only treatment option for clients that suffered from gum recession. Thankfully, this is no longer the case with an innovative technique that allows your cosmetic dentist to restore your gum health with:
- Less bleeding
- Minimal discomfort
- Reduced post-op pain
This new technique allows Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique & Spa to avoid making a large incision and grafting tissue into place and instead allows us to move your healthy gum tissue to the area that needs to be treated by using a small pinhole.
When compared to traditional periodontal surgery, this technique greatly reduces your risk of complications. Our dental boutique has consistently achieved outstanding results for our clients with this method.
Minimize Risks with an Innovative Technique
With the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, your cosmetic dentist will create a small hole in the gum above the tooth that is experiencing the recession. Through this tiny opening, we will cover the sensitive root of the tooth by gently moving the surrounding soft tissue into the proper place. By using this method, we can eliminate the risks that are associated with sutures and incisions. In addition to that, this procedure does not require anesthesia or sedation – so you will be able to avoid those risks as well! You can learn more about this procedure by clicking here.
Recovery with Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique
You will be glad to know that our clients state that they have experienced very minimal discomfort or pain after undergoing this procedure, unlike with the traditional soft grafting method. With the traditional method, you would be able to return to your routine within a day or two. However, with this new technique, you can return to your activities immediately after you leave our dental boutique!
With that said, your chances of complications following your procedure are significantly reduced due to the shortened recovery time. Side effects following the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique are rare, especially when you choose a cosmetic dentist that is trained in the technique, such as those at Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique & Spa.
