PINHOLE® SURGICAL TECHNIQUE
A quick and easy option to correct gum recession
SCALPEL FREE, SUTURE FREE, GRAFT FREE
The key to The Pinhole® Surgical Technique is that we don’t have to perform graft. We go through a pinhole which is made by a needle, so there’s no scalpel or cutting at all. Then we can literally shift the tissue down with very little trauma to the tissue. Also, there are no open wounds. It’s so minimally invasive; nothing could be more noninvasive in dentistry than this. I know that if you’re not used to seeing things like this it seems like it’s quite traumatic, but really it’s very, very minimal. There’s so much blood supply and so much collagen in the area that when you see the patient the next day, you can hardly tell if anything was done. The tiny pinhole that’s been made shrinks away by the next day.
