Gum Recession Treatment

Some patients complain about a gummy smile, but what if you have the opposite problem? If your gums have pulled away from your teeth, leaving your teeth sensitive and making you feel self-conscious about the appearance of your smile, contact our top-notch Edgewood, KY dentists in Edgewood Dental Care for a truly innovative gum recession treatment.

Because the Pinhole® technique can be performed only by someone who has trained with the method’s creator, Dr. John Chao, only a select number of dentists in the United States offer the procedure. Fortunately for our patients, our very own Dr. Kevin McMahon can provide this cutting-edge gum recession treatment right here at our Edgewood, KY dentists office.

The Pinhole Gum Recession Process

Dr. Kevin McMahon on Gum Recession Treatment Read Transcript

It’s been estimated that as many as half of Americans suffer from gum recession. Most dentists treat the problem with gum grafts. While this method does work well, it results in discomfort for the patient during the procedure and a lengthy healing process.

The Pinhole technique, in contrast, can be completed quickly and comfortably – many patients fully heal over night!

Instead of using gum grafts, we will create a tiny pinhole, gently loosen your gums around the area of recession, and then move your gums back to their proper position. You’ll see dramatic results the same day of the procedure, and as your gums continue to heal, your appearance will only improve.

To ensure you are completely comfortable during the gum recession treatment, we can also administer dental sedation, including:

  • Inhaled sedation
  • Oral sedation
  • IV sedation

If that isn’t enough to put you at ease, our trusted Edgewood. KY dentists also have several comfort options to help relieve your dental anxiety.

If your gums have pulled away leaving you with sensitive teeth and less confidence, contact Edgewood Dental Care at 859-474-7830 for innovative, comfortable gum recession treatment. You can also use our online form to contact our friendly Edgewood, KY dentists and the staff.
