Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation

CMB Dentistry is excited to announce we can now offer the Chao’s Pinhole Surgical Technique which is a Scalpel-Free, Suture-Free, Graft-free option for treating gum recession.  The procedure is minimally invasive as it does not require taking a piece of gum tissue from the roof of the patient's mouth which is the part of conventional gum grafting that is most closely associated with post operative pain.  Through a small hole made by a needle, specially designed instruments gently loosen the gum tissue and move it over the receded part of the tooth.  The gums, in the new position, are held in place by support strips which dissolve naturally and stimulate new gum growth and support.  Since there are no incisions, stitches, or gum donor sites the patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms such as pain, swelling, and bleeding.

The purpose of the Pinhole Surgical Technique is to: create a widened zone of attached gum tissue adequate to reduce the likelihood of additional gum recession and to cover exposed root surfaces in order to enhance the appearance of the teeth and gum line and to prevent/treat root sensitivity or root decay.  Call today to schedule your pinhole surgical consultation.
