Rejuvenate Your Smile
Gum rejuvenation can be done during a lunch hour visit using this new non-invasive pin hole rejuvenation technique.
Whether it’s one area or multiple areas that are affected, this easy, one-visit procedure allows you to go out to dinner afterwards. Very little pain is recorded by any of the patients and recovery time is often none to very little.
Our Aim with Dental Implants
What our aim is in long term success for adults is to treat underlying causes. For example if you are grinding or if you have teeth out of place these things can cause gum issues.
If you imagine if you had a pole in the sand and you wiggled it, the pole would cause a hole to appear in the sand. The point where the most stresses are, is where the sand meets the pole at the top. This is the same where the tooth meets the bone. This problem could cause gum rejuvenation to not work long term. Hence we must correct the heart of the issue, often with orthodontics or other techniques. At Castlemill we look at the whole picture to ensure your long term success is as assured as possible.

He realises that gum rejuvenation and case selection is extremely important avoid disappointment in long term and maximise chances of long term success.

In light of this he is currently undertaking research project with Geistlich Bio-Oss from Switzerland. They are manufactures of the number one recommended material for the procedure. We currently have a long prospective study underway to best evaluate which cases respond well.

How it works
This noninvasive technique replaces the gum that is gone by making a pinhole at the top of your teeth, near the roots. We’ll go through this hole with a needle and don’t need to raise flaps or take skin grafts.
There is no cutting or stitching involved, so there is little to no recovery time or pain. Your teeth will be back to where they used to be, giving your smile an instant improvement. In total, the procedure takes just one to two hours.
