Gum Recession Treatment in Bradenton and Sarasota
Minimally Invasive Techniques to Treat Receding Gums
Healthy gums protect your teeth from bacteria and other damaging substances. Gum recession occurs when the gums retreat from their proper position around your teeth and leave your tooth roots exposed. Not only do exposed roots make your teeth look longer than normal, causing you to look old, they leave your teeth unprotected. Thus, gum recession can be both a cosmetic and an oral health problem.

What Causes Gum Recession?
Below are the most common causes of gum recession:
- Severe gum disease
- Overly aggressive brushing or flossing
- Inadequate earlier dental hygiene
- Use of tobacco products
- Teeth grinding or clenching
- Injury or trauma to the teeth
- Misaligned or crooked teeth
- Past orthodontic treatment
- Genetics (predisposing you to gum disease, or causing you to have naturally thin gums)
The importance of treating receding gums
Exposed tooth roots are much more sensitive to heat, cold and sweets. The tooth roots themselves are softer than tooth enamel and are thus more prone to damage from bacteria, food acids and aggressive brushing.
Teeth with exposed roots can eventually become so worn down that they loosen, fracture or break. Thus, gum recession treatment is vital to the long-term preservation of your oral health.
Our Minimally Invasive Gum Recession Treatment
Dr. Rubino uses advanced, minimally invasive gum recession procedures which cause little to no post-operative discomfort and allow for fast recovery.
The breakthrough Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique for receding gums
The most recent innovation in correcting receding gums is the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique, a minimally invasive gum recession treatment that does not require any gum grafting and can effectively correct gum recession over your entire mouth in just one visit. Dr. Rubino is one of only 700 practitioners worldwide (to date) who are trained to deliver the pinhole procedure.
With the pinhole technique, no incisions are made and no sutures are needed. Instead, Dr. Rubino uses a small dental instrument to reposition the gums over the tooth roots through a tiny pinhole. Post-operative discomfort is minimal and healing time is very fast. Patients are usually able to resume their daily activities by the very next day.
Gentle, minimally invasive gum grafting treatment
Although the pinhole technique offers a good solution for many, there are still situations for which gum grafting is needed. Dr. Rubino uses special micro surgical instruments and techniques to provide gentle, minimally invasive gum grafting treatment that restores root coverage and thickens gums when necessary.
High-magnification eyeglasses known as surgical loupes allow him to clearly see very tiny areas of the mouth as he works. This enables him to use micro instruments which are more precise and gentler on the tissues than traditional, standard-sized instruments. It also enables him to use microsutures, which are very small, specialized sutures that dissolve on their own and do not require a second appointment for removal.
Dr. Rubino’s minimally invasive techniques allow him to work with great precision. This makes post-operative discomfort minimal and healing much faster.
Your comfort is important to us
Your comfort during treatment is a top priority for Dr. Rubino and the staff. Before your treatment starts, Dr. Rubino will take the time to thoroughly educate you about the procedures so you know what to expect and can feel at ease with your treatment.
Our injections are very gentle and we take the time to administer them with great care and make them comfortable for you. For added comfort in the chair we provide pillows, blankets and wireless headphones so that you can listen to music during treatment if you wish.
