Receding gums have a noticeable impact on the appearance and health of your smile. When your gums have pulled away from your teeth, it can expose the roots. This can hurt your confidence in your smile, too. You can change that with our gum recession treatment.
At our Edgewood, KY dental office, this procedure:
- Restores gumlines to their proper place for a more attractive smile
- Covers roots to protect them from cavity-causing bacteria
- Stops pain and tooth sensitivity
Instead of having a complicated surgery, repair your gums with a minimally invasive option. Call 859-474-7830 to make an appointment at Edgewood Dental Care. Find out how this treatment can bring back your smile.
Keep Your Gum Treatment Simple
Once upon a time, you had two options. Live with receded gums (not a good choice) or get a gum graft (better, but not ideal). A gum graft essentially is a gum tissue transplant. Without going into all the details, it requires opening your gums. Then transplanted tissue can be added where it’s needed. Your gums are closed with stitches. As you heal, the existing tissue and the new tissue will hopefully grow together.
As an alternative, we can fix your gums with the Chao Pinhole® technique. Using just a small opening, we can loosen the tissue so it can be repositioned gently. By doing this, we restore your gumline to its original location, where it covers and protects the roots of your teeth. You’ll be able to see the difference that same day. Your recovery is easier too because the opening is so small.
To ensure your comfort, we offer three kinds of dental sedation. This way, you know you won’t feel anything while the pinhole procedure is underway.
Because the pinhole technique can be performed only by someone who has trained with the method’s creator, just a few dentists in Kentucky offer the procedure. Fortunately for our patients, Dr. Kevin McMahon can provide this cutting-edge treatment right here.
Restore Your Oral Health
To have a healthy mouth, you need healthy gums. Receding gums put you at a greater risk of other issues, including tooth infections. Gum recession can be the result of one or more factors, including gum disease, your genes, hormone changes, poor oral hygiene, and brushing your teeth too hard.
You owe it to yourself to get your smile back in shape. You might be surprised how much we can do with a pinhole at Edgewood Dental Care. To experience the benefits of gum recession treatment in Edgewood, KY, you need to call 859-474-7830 for an appointment.
