Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation

If you have gum disease or other oral infections and as a result, your gums begin to recede, then the pinhole gum rejuvenation technique is absolutely right for you. This technique doesn’t leave any scar and is minimally invasive. 

You can discuss with Dr. Glenn about the Pinhole Technique and find out if this treatment is right for you. Through pinhole gum rejuvenation, your gum health can be improved without the use of scalpel, sutures, or grafts.

What is the problem with the gum recession?

Gum recession can affect the aesthetics of your smile by making your teeth appear longer. It can also cause various other dental issues. Gum recession can make the tooth look more exposed along with the tooth root. It can cause uncomfortable sensitivity, even leaving your tooth roots open to bacteria, which can lead to tooth decay.

What is pinhole gum rejuvenation?

The dentist creates a small hole in the gums for the pinhole gum rejuvenation procedure, after giving you local anesthesia to make the surface numb. The dentist then uses a special tool to gently pull the gum into the desired position, stretching it over the area that has receded. After that, he inserts tiny strips of collagen through the hole to keep the gums in place. The whole treatment session doesn’t take a long time.

The healing is quite quick, and it just takes about a day or two. Most of the people who have undergone the treatment reported no swelling or pain. The improvement in the appearance of their teeth and gums can be seen immediately.

What are the benefits of pinhole gum rejuvenation?

The benefits of pinhole gum rejuvenation are, as follows:

  • No Surgical Cutting or Sutures: This procedure doesn’t involve any surgical cutting or sutures.
  • Less Down Time: The patients recover just within a day or two. The procedure is gentle, and after the treatment, you can leave the office and go about your day as usual.
  • Fast Procedure: This surgical technique is quite fast. You could see a significant improvement in the appearance of your gums soon after the procedure.
