Treatment for Receding Gums in Indianapolis

The Pinhole Surgical Technique™

gum surgery treatment for receding gums in Indianapolis Carmel and Fishers
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ offers a minimally invasive approach to gum restoration. With this method, Dr. Behner can cover your exposed tooth roots by utilizing the gum tissue that you have in place, without the need for scalpels or sutures. The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ delivers healthy gum lines with little to no discomfort or downtime, resulting in an instantly improved smile.

Gum Grafting

There are three types of gum graft surgery that may be performed to restore gum tissue, but connective tissue grafts are the most commonly performed. In a connective tissue graft, gum tissue is taken from one area, usually the roof of the mouth, and transferred to cover your exposed root surfaces. Once sutured into place, the donor tissue integrates at the treatment site, resulting in healthier gum levels.

Gum Pocket Reduction

During this gum surgery treatment, which may also be utilized to treat periodontal infection, plaque, tartar, and bacteria are removed from the root surfaces and the bone under the gum line is reshaped to correct any damage sustained over time. The periodontal tissue is then stretched into an improved position, sutured into place, and the excess is trimmed.

    Jeanie M.

    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.

    —Leslee D.

    Cindy M.

    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!
