Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation
Receding gums is a problem that can cause teeth sensitivity, root caries, and bone loss among other concerns. If left untreated, the recession could further progress and may lead to tooth loss.
There are multiple techniques and different approaches available to treat gum recession. One of the most popular and minimally invasive is the Pinhole Technique. Our specialists at Periodontal Health Center underwent specific training to become certified in the Pinhole Technique.
How does pinhole gum rejuvenation work?
In this procedure, we create small holes in the gum tissue using a specialized needle. Through these holes, the gum tissue is released and stretched over the exposed root surfaces to fill in any gaps. This eliminates the more complex and invasive surgery of having to go to a second site in the mouth to transplant tissue into the receding sites.
Tiny collagen strips are placed through the entry point to keep the gums in place during the healing process. Most patients report virtually no pain, no bleeding, and high satisfaction due to the rapid results. Adequate case selection is key in order to ensure successful outcomes using the Pinhole technique.
