Pinhole Surgical Technique

The Scalpel Free Treatment for Receding Gums in Fishers, IN

Receding gums that can be treated using the Pinhole surgical technique.
While gum recession can make you appear older, gums can begin to recede at any age. This is due to the fact that gum recession is generally the result of gum disease, a common oral infection suffered by millions. Seeking treatment for receding gums in Fishers, IN will not only improve the appearance of your smile, but your oral health as well. Gum recession erodes the protective barrier that protects tooth roots from the dangers of decay and damage. If you have exposed, sensitive teeth, schedule a consultation with Dr. Dale Behner to learn about the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™). PST™ can restore gum tissue lost to the following factors:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Poor dental hygiene
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Hormonal fluctuations
  • Overly aggressive tooth brushing
  • Oral piercings
  • Clenching or grinding teeth

What to Expect During Pinhole Surgical Technique Treatment for Receding Gums in Indianapolis

PST™ is performed through an opening created in the gum tissue at the treatment site. Dr. Behner will make a pinhole sized entry point in the gums above or below your sensitive teeth. He will then insert a special dental tool that allows him to loosen the connective tissue that holds your gum tissue in place. The tissue can then be gently stretched over the exposed sensitive teeth and held in place with collagen. The collagen will maintain the new position of your gum line while it heals. PST™ can be performed on a single tooth or on multiple treatment sites in one session and the effects of the surgery are immediate. You will leave our office with an instantly more beautiful, healthier smile. As there are no surgical wounds or sutures, post-procedure recovery discomfort is minimal with PST™. Most patients report little to no bleeding or swelling, and are able to return to normal activities the following day.

    I know I need some extra pats and such to get me ready, and they always have been there to smile and reassure me! It’s extremely embarrassing to have so much fear but they are there not judging by comforting me!

    I had put off having dental work because of anxiety. I’m so glad to have been referred to Dr. Behner many years ago. Being able to have IV sedation enabled me to get the work done that was needed. Dr. Behner and his staff are so understanding. My bite is better due to crowns and I’m no longer in pain. Thank you, Dr. Behner. I no longer “dread” the dentist.

    My experince with Dr. Behner and staff seriously changed my life. I’m 52, and feared the dentist since childhood, after terrible visits. Over 5 years ago, I found Dr. Behner after doing an internet search for sedation dentistry. At my first visit, even before my sedation appt., I knew I had found my dentist for life. The atmosphere, the staff, and the dentist, all give a sense of comfort and peace. I’ve never once been afraid again, and actually look forward to my appointments!

    —Cindy M.

    Judy S.

    The entire staff is so kind and considerate that over the years my anxiety has diminished. They are my "dental family". Just had an extraction and cannot imagine a better dentist!
