I have a serious tooth recession on tooth number three, lingual side (most of the root is exposed). Dr Chao tells me that his Pinhole Technique will not work on the lingual side. Can you please tell me what other options I may have?

  • Without clinical exminations and xrays, it is not possible to comment on your situation. However first of all if recession is there, then you have to find out the cause for the same and for that you have to visit your dentist as it is not very common to have recession on a single tooth and that too on the lingual side. May be it is due to some trauma to tooth. Discuss with your dentist and ask for options based on his assessment. for more info on tooth recession, you can check this link in our website.... http://www.identalhub.com/articlecategory-gum-diseases-9.aspx
