If you need a gum recession treatment in Albuquerque, NM, we will carefully plan your treatment, then Dr. Shepherd will:

  • Make a small pinhole in your gums above the affected area
  • Use a special tool inserted in the pinhole to loosen your gum line
  • Gently bring your gumline back where it should be over your tooth roots

We can also improve your experience with comfort options and help relieve your dental anxiety with dental sedation!
