Receding gums can be the sign of a dental health problem and should be evaluated by one of our dentists at Corbin Dental. There is a range of causes for gum recession and treatment will be designed to restore both gum health and improved aesthetics.
New York area cosmetic and restorative dentists Drs. Richard and Bruce Corbin can provide advanced treatment options and experienced care for the treatment of receding gums and help you achieve a more balanced and healthy smile.
Pinhole Surgical Technique
Dr. Richard and Dr. Bruce Corbin are trained in the Pinhole Surgical Technique for restoring a more uniform and healthier gum line without the need for traditional gum surgery. A minimally invasive procedure, the Pinhole Surgical Technique is completed in one visit and enables most patients to return to their normal routine almost immediately.
Pinhole Gum Surgery: what to expect:
The Pinhole surgical procedure is considered minimally invasive when compared to other options. The first step is to make you comfortable with a local anesthetic or the use of dental sedation. A very small and specifically designed needle is used to create a hole in the gums and then to gently reposition existing gum tissue to create a longer and more pleasing gum line. Next, collagen strips are strategically placed under the gums to support placement and natural tissue recovery.
The goal of treatment is to recover any exposed tooth roots for better oral health and reduced sensitivity and to achieve your aesthetic goals. Once complete, we will provide any post-treatment care instructions and you can enjoy your new smile.
Benefits of Pinhole Gum Surgery:
- No scalpel, no grafting
- Minimizes discomfort and risks commonly associated with oral surgery
- Faster recovery times
- Immediate, permanent results
Maintaining your new gum line and healthy gums are important for a long-term result. Daily brushing (with a soft-bristled toothbrush), flossing and regular visits to your local Corbin Dental office will provide the foundation for a lifetime of beautiful smiles.
