Pinhole Gum Surgery | Health Plus Dental

Do you suffer from receding gums?

Typically receding gums are often the result of active periodontal disease (gum disease);if so, you may be a candidate for pinhole gum surgery.

Since gum disease is a degenerative condition, it can result in tooth loss and jawbone decay if left untreated. Correcting this is necessary to restore and maintain a healthy and functioning smile. Health Plus Dental Centre is pleased to offer the Pinhole Surgical Technique to our patients.

What is Pinhole Gum Surgery?

The Pinhole Surgical Technique is a scalpel-free, suture-free, minimally invasive procedure for correcting gum recession due to bone loss. Our experienced dentists will use a thin needle to make a small pinhole above the affected area, through which they will insert a special instrument to gently loosen the gum tissue and glide and stretch it over the receding part of the tooth. Since there is no cutting or stitching involved in the procedure, patients can expect very minimal postoperative pain, swelling, and bleeding. Most patients see instant cosmetic improvement.

Benefits of Pinhole Surgical Technique:

  • It can correct gum recession in as little as 1 treatment
  • Treatment sessions can often be completed in as little as 1-2 hours
  • There is minimal discomfort and swelling in most cases because the method is scalpel-free, suture-free, and graft-free
  • Most patients are back to normal and can resume light activities within 24-48 hours post-procedure
  • Results can provide a more youthful and attractive appearance
  • Correction of receding gums can prevent tooth loss and the need for other costly procedures such as implants or dentures
  • Patients often describe very high levels of satisfaction with the improved appearance of their smile from correcting their receding gums. As a result, there is a significant increase in self-esteem and happiness as they feel able to smile without the shame associated with unattractive receding gum

We know that receding gums can cause great pain and insecurity. If you suffer from gum disease, you may be a candidate for Pinhole Gum Surgery. Call Health Plus Dental Centre today to set up your consultation appointment today.
