WELCOME to PORT WARWICK DENTAL ARTS!
Gum recession, like other forms of dental disease, can develop silently and quickly become aggressive. Until recently, there were no easy treatments for this painful and unsightly condition. Now, Dr. Lisa Marie Samaha at Port Warwick Dental Arts provides a revolutionary procedure called the Pinhole Receding Gums Treatment™ for treating gum tissue recession.
Dr. Samaha and her exceptionally trained team serve the Hampton Roads and Williamsburg, VA, communities with a gentle and effective method for treating gum recession through a tiny pinhole. A general dentist, Dr. Samaha is a recognized leader in the treatment of all areas of periodontal disease. She instructs dentists around the world in the non-surgical treatment of periodontal disease that she developed.
Dr. Samaha is licensed to perform the Pinhole Receding Gums Treatment™ for treating gum recession. As the name implies, this technique for treating gum recession is really done through a very conservative pinhole. There are no incisions or stitches. Dr. Samaha uses specially designed instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue and glide it over the receded part of the tooth. There is minimal swelling or discomfort associated with the Pinhole Receding Gums Treatment™, so you can return to work or your normal activities the very next day! The gum recession area is covered immediately and looks beautiful right away. You can even eat a dinner the night of surgery!
Best of all, the entire process takes less than 30 minutes per tooth, and the cost is very reasonable. Because the Pinhole Receding Gums Treatment™ is so quick and gentle and no tissue has to be cut from the roof of the mouth, an entire arch of recession — from one side to the other — can be treated in one appointment.
Traditional methods of treatment involve gum grafting, in which tissue is cut from the roof of the mouth and sewn onto the gums. With gum grafting, the treatment of a number of teeth might take months to accomplish. Typically, the cost would be significantly higher. There would also be weeks of discomfort — even pain — as the roof of the mouth heals, along with the actual areas of gum recession that are being treated. Now this is no longer necessary.
This Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is the latest in dental health care and Dr. Samaha was one of the first 100 dentists licensed worldwide to perform this leading-edge procedure. And even though this Pinhole Receding Gums Treatment™ is a new method of gum surgery, it has been tested thoroughly for more than 20 years.
Featured in the prestigious International Journal of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry, 2012, outcomes were the same as with the previous traditional, aggressive means of gum recession treatment. The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is remarkably safe and predictable.
