New technology available for correcting receding gum lines

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Correcting a receding gum line once meant hours in a dental chair and weeks of recovery.

Now, new technology makes the process much faster and less painful.

Using a needle, the dentist creates a pinhole in the gums.

This way, 10 to 14 teeth can be corrected at once.

Patients typically recover from the process in 24 hours.

It’s expected to be a permanent, one-visit procedure with little to no risk involved.

The cost is about the same as traditional methods.
