Gum tunneling is an innovative and minimally invasive procedure designed to treat gum recession and protect your teeth from the adverse effects associated with exposed roots. Dr. Anil Dwivedi specializes in the gum tunneling technique, which offers a gentler alternative to traditional grafting methods. This approach focuses on creating a small tunnel beneath the receded gum tissue, into which a graft material is then carefully placed and secured. This process encourages natural regeneration and reattachment of the gum tissue over the exposed areas, promoting healing and restoring the gum line to its natural position.

The gum tunneling procedure begins with a thorough examination to assess the extent of gum recession and determine the most effective treatment plan. Local anesthesia is applied to ensure comfort throughout the procedure, which typically involves minimal discomfort and a quicker recovery time compared to more invasive techniques.

Benefits of gum tunneling include:

  • Effective treatment of gum recession without the need for extensive surgery
  • Preservation of the natural gum line and prevention of further recession
  • Reduced sensitivity and enhanced protection for exposed tooth roots
  • Improved aesthetics of your smile and overall oral health
