Gum Lift / Gum Rejuvenation in Raleigh NC

(Pinhole Surgical Technique in Raleigh NC)

If you suffer from gum recession and sensitivitiy around the gums/teeth, you may be qualified to undergo this non-invasive gum lift/rejuvenation procedure to restore your lost gum tissue and recession back to its normal, healthy condition .

Symptoms of receding gums include:

  • Excessively long teeth

  • Exposed roots

  • Sensitive teeth

  • Tooth wear near the gumline

  • Pain below the gum line

  • Tooth pain when exposed to cold


If you think you may have receding gums, we strongly urge you to see a dentist before they lead to more serious problems such as tooth decay, extreme tooth sensitivity and loss of tooth support.

The gum lift/rejuvenation procedure involves approximately four small, pin-hole sized incisions made on each arch. The incisions allow us access to lift and reposition the gum tissue back to its "natural" position. After the gums are repostioned, synthetic collagen is inserted into the sites to allow for tissue stabilization. The pinhole incisions typically disappear or heal the next day and majority of patients experience no or minimal discomfort after surgery. Often only one or two doses of an anti-inflammatory medication is required after the surgery. If you would like to see if you qualify for this procedure, please contact our office for a consultation.
