At Progressive Implantology & Periodontics, we offer a virtually painless way to treat receding gums with the Pinhole Surgical Technique. When gum recession occurs, the root structure of the tooth becomes exposed. This means that tooth decay and other problems can affect the teeth along the gumline and beneath it. Since healthy gums are essential for a healthy mouth, treating gum recession is important for lasting dental wellness.
Pinhole Surgical Technique™
The Pinhole Surgical Technique now makes it possible to treat gum recession—scalpel free and suture free. The procedure is performed by inserting a very small tool into a pinpoint hole in the gums and then gently loosening the gum tissue so that it expands and slides the gumline down over the exposed root structure. Because there is very little harm done to the gum tissue, there is minimal bleeding and minimal recovery time with excellent, natural-looking and long-lasting results. The results are improved oral health, healthier gums and a healthier smile.
