Well, if you’re the patient getting operated on, maybe you don’t think it’s so cool. Unless you’re the rare exception who likes needles in your gums.
But you should be excited, because this technique will allow your gums to be shaped with minimal risk, pain, and down-time. Its inherently minimally invasive and low-maintenance. There is no cutting or suturing, and healing is quick.
This technique was developed fairly recently by a man named Dr. Chao, and it is taking off internationally as the preferred method of gum shaping after periodontal or gingival treatment.
Note that this is solely meant to restore the gum line for the purpose of aesthetics and functionality. It is not gum disease treatment, and it must be done in a disease-free mouth. So this is something I’d do after my patient has successfully undergone therapy for gum disease and only needs the gums to shrink back up around the teeth.
It sure beats the traditional method, however, of grafting gum tissue from another area of the mouth.
The condition of one’s mouth reflects the condition of the body. Dr. Sperbeck works in unison with qualified health experts, creating complete dental and general health programs for patients. When it comes to something as valuable as your teeth, you want to be sure they remain strong and beautiful for your lifetime.
