Did you know that more than half of Americans will experience gum deterioration in their lifetime? Though the causes range from genetics, to lifestyle choices or just the wear and tear of aging, the outcome can dramatically affect your appearance and oral health.
This common condition can worsen and lead to more complicated dental health concerns if not properly treated. Exposed roots are a common side effect of gum recession and can be painful and complicated to repair with traditional surgical methods. Sandy Springs dentist Dr. Brenda Paulen now offers the non surgical Pinhole Gum Lift, a patented process that can be completed in about an hour with lasting results and no downtime.
In the past gum rejuvenation surgery was invasive and painful. With busy schedules and on the go lifestyles, finding time to get and recover from gum surgery can be difficult. Thankfully, this is no longer the case. The Pinhole Gum Lift has revolutionized the gum rejuvenation process, making it a simple process with very little recovery time.
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique
Developed by Dr. John Chao, the Pinhole Gum rejuvenation treatment can repair receding gums without invasive surgery. Atlanta dentist Dr. Brenda Paulen has received exclusive training in The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Nicknamed the “Lunchtime Gum LIft” the Pinhole technique can be accomplished in just one hour. Using a special shaped tool, Dr. Paulen will create just a pin sized hole in the gums, insert the tool, and reposition the gum line for a healthier and more aesthetic appearance. This permanent fix to gum recession uses strips of collagen behind the gum line to help restore your smile. Only local numbing agents are used for your comfort, and within one hour at our Sandy Springs dentist office, you are back on your feet with little, to no discomfort at all- and a healthy, natural looking gum line.
ProudSmiles focuses on your complete dental health and how it relates to your physical well being. Dr. Paulen works with all patients to achieve their aesthetic and oral health goals.
