A Better Way To Treat Receding Gums (video)

Gum Disease Treatment 3 | Edgewood Dental Care - Edgewood, KY

Earlier this month, we reminded you that gum disease is not a good thing for your smile. Receding gums are one of the most noticeable consequences of advanced gum disease.

Gum recession is the result of infected gums separating from your teeth. This exposes the roots of your teeth and your jawbones to bacteria as well.

If you have receding gums, we have good news. Our dentist office in Edgewood, KY has a better treatment option for you. Dr. Kevin McMahon explains the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique in the video below.

Compared to gum grafting, the Pinhole technique is a less invasive approach. It involves a pinhole-sized opening and repositioning your gum tissue. This restores the appearance of your gumline and provides protection for the roots of your teeth.
