Dr. Lindsay B. Eastman now accepts patients seeking a gum surgery alternative for the treatment of receding gums, with the innovative Pinhole Surgical Technique™. This receding gums treatment in Bradenton, FL does not cut away at the gums like traditional methods, and is considered minimally invasive.

Gum recession is most often caused by gum disease, which is an incredibly prevalent problem in the United States.

The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ utilizes advanced instruments that enable the doctor to reposition the gums without necessitating the use of a scalpel or sutures. Instead, specialized instruments are used to create a small hole through which the gums can be immediately repositioned over the affected teeth. Dr. Eastman can usually treat multiple teeth in just one visit through this gum surgery alternative, and is able to deliver immediate cosmetic results. The procedure minimizes the discomfort of the patient and reduces recovery time significantly.
