Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation

In short, Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Surgical Technique is a revolutionary procedure for treating gum recession. It is an incision-free, suture-free procedure that is performed through a small pinhole.

  • No Grafting
  • No Scalpels
  • No Sutures

How It Works

Pinhole Gum rejuvenation is a new technique for reducing or eliminating gum recession. Until now, gum tissue grafting has been the only solution for treating and restoring receding gums. However, it involves more discomfort and a longer healing process than the Pinhole technique. This revolutionary technique is completely safe and is less invasive than traditional gum tissue grafting. Unlike traditional gum grafting surgery, there is no need to remove a tissue graft sample from the roof of your mouth and stitch it to the area of gum recession. Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation does not require any cutting or stitching. In addition, gum grafting requires multiple surgeries, while the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Technique can treat multiple areas with one surgery.

What Causes Gum Recession?

Many people attribute receded gums to aging. However, gum recession is not normal and can be a sign of a much more serious problem. Receding gums are a contributing cause of tooth loss due to weakening of the supporting jaw bone that anchors your teeth.

Gum recession is often caused by one or more of the following:

Brushing Too Hard
Although brushing your teeth is a good thing, using an improper technique can be destructive to your teeth and gums. Using a hard bristle toothbrush, an abrasive toothpaste, or just brushing too forcefully can lead to receding gums.

Wear and Tear
Over the years, the effects of destructive mouth habits, tongue or mount jewelry, abrasive foods and the like can result in gum recession that may go unnoticed.

Grinding or Clenching
Teeth grinding (Bruxism) introduces destructive forces to the roots of the teeth which can contribute to gum recession over time.

Gum Disease
Almost half of adults suffer from some degree of gum disease (periodontitis). If left untreated, the progressive nature of gum disease can lead to gum recession as well as tooth loss.
How Will Gum Recession Harm My Teeth and Gums?

Sensitive Root Surfaces
The roots of your teeth are normally covered by gum tissue and bone in order to protect them from exposure to hot, cold, acids, abrasives and other factors that can cause irreversible damage to the exposed root surfaces and sensitive nerve endings.

Unsightly Appearance
An important part of an attractive smile is healthy gum tissue that “frames” the teeth, creating a pleasant smile. When the gums are uneven due to gum recession, it makes the teeth appear out of proportion.

Health Risks
Unhealthy, receding gums can increase your susceptibility to gum disease. Receding gums contributes to gum inflammation and possible infection of the gums. Studies have confirmed a connection between gum disease and other systemic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease.

Tooth Loss
In cases where gum recession is progressive because of underlying gum disease, the loss of one or more teeth can occur.
