Paradise Dental Associates proudly provide the groundbreaking Pinhole® Surgical Procedure in order to reverse gum recession for our patients. Gum recession can be caused by a multitude of things such as genetics or aggressive brushing. No matter the initial cause, gum recession causes extreme tooth sensitivity, which ultimately leads to tooth loss. We explained what precisely the Pinhole Process was in The Pinhole® Process 101. We will tell you about the advantages of receiving this procedure for gum recession over other, less advanced techniques.
To reiterate, the Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive process in which we use specialized dental instruments to make a tiny “pinhole” in your gums, then reposition the tissue by pulling it down over the recession.
No Scalpels or Grafts
Using this process to reverse gum recession ensures that no tissue is cut; existing tissue is just simply moved. This is a massive advantage for receiving this procedure as there is no cutting, stitches, or scarring necessary to complete this surgery. Alleviating cuts during the process also ensures less bleeding and faster healing!
Dr. Helyne Hamelburg at Paradise Dental has been highly trained in the Pinhole® Technique because we prefer it to any other gum recession procedure. The procedure goes as follows:
- It starts right above the crown of the tooth/ where the line of receding is
- Tiny holes are made in the gum where there are signs of recession
- The gums get massaged using a specialty tool where they are then either pushed or pulled into place
- Collagen is filled inside these holes; it helps keep the gums in place!
The seamless results of the Pinhole® Technique ensure that you will be back in love with your smile immediately after the procedure. Other gum recession procedures leave you imagining your results as you heal rather than noticing them right away.
Takes Only One Visit
There is nothing better than being able to complete a procedure in one single trip to Paradise Dental! The Pinhole® Procedure allows you to treat your gum recession entirely in only one visit, whereas most other techniques take at least two.
