Gum disease is a bacterial infection that affects some 80 percent of the adult population in the United States. In the beginning, signs of gum disease include red and swollen gums that may bleed when you brush your teeth. As the disease advances, there are more serious consequences. One of the more common ones is gum recession, a condition that can not only be unsightly but may also cause extreme tooth sensitivity because of exposed tooth roots. Dr. Solich, the dentist Colorado Springs, CO, trusts, treats gum recession with the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™).
