Receding gums do not only ruin your smile and age you; they also leave your teeth vulnerable to root exposure and damage, tooth sensitivity, and tooth loss.

At one time, patients could only correct their receding gums by having a dentist perform a gum graft. This procedure involves taking donor tissue from the roof of the patient’s mouth and stitching it to the damaged or receded gum line. Over time the new tissue heals and attaches to the gum line. While this is not a major dental surgery, a recovery time of three weeks, as well as discomfort from the procedure, are two drawbacks to gum grafting.

Fortunately, gum grafts are no longer your only option to repair gums damaged by periodontal disease. A technique called ‘Pinhole Surgery’ allows our dentist to fix your gums without removing the skin from your palate and suturing it to your gum line.

The procedure is straightforward and usually is complete in under two hours. After administering a local anesthetic to numb your mouth, our dentist uses a needle to make a small hole in your gum. This hole is where the dentist inserts special dental instruments to loosen your gums gently. Next, your gums return to the proper position after the dentist stretches the loose gum tissue to cover the root of your tooth. Your skin re-attaches naturally, and your gums are in the correct place to protect your roots and give you a beautiful smile.

There are several benefits of Pinhole surgery which make the procedure preferable to gum grafts.

• Results are nearly instantaneous
• No cutting or stitching means your gums have a smooth and natural look
• There is no long recovery time needed
• You have no skin removed from the roof of your mouth
• It is possible to treat multiple areas in just one visit; gum grafts repair a single area at a time because the dentist can only remove a limited amount of skin from your palate at a single visit

If you think Pinhole surgery may be right for you, contact our office for a consultation and take the first step in the journey to a perfect smile.
