Correct Gum Recession without Invasive Surgery

If you have receding gums because of tooth loss, gum disease, tissue inflammation, or other oral health problems, you may have been told you need to undergo a gum grafting procedure to restore your smile. As an alternative to gum grafting, we may recommend the Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™) to correct gum recession. This is a minimally invasive technique that can create a more attractive, healthy smile without any incisions or sutures.

The Benefits of Pinhole Surgical Technique for Gum Recession

Why Choose the Pinhole Surgical Technique?

  • Decreased Sensitivity

Receding gums can cause uncomfortable sensitivity to hot or cold beverages. The Pinhole Surgical Technique will reverse recession and return you to comfort by protecting the sensitive tooth roots.

  • Same-Day Results

You will be able to see the cosmetic results of the Pinhole Surgical Technique immediately after the procedure.

  • Minimally Invasive

PST requires no sutures, no cutting, and no secondary surgical site. This means you will have little to no downtime after the procedure.

Our Pinhole Surgical Technique Process

The Pinhole Surgical Technique can effectively restore the gum line without any incisions or sutures. As a result, there is minimal bleeding, swelling, inflammation, and discomfort involved. We can treat multiple teeth in a single visit and you can walk away with a more attractive smile that same day. The procedure involves making a very small hole in the gums to loosen the tissue and move it over the areas where the gums have receded.

Conventional Gum Grafting vs Pinhole Surgical Technique

Gentle, Timely Treatment

The gums heal relatively quickly and the entire process for the Pinhole Surgical Technique takes far less time than traditional surgery. The Pinhole Surgery Technique in Vancouver, BC, is effective for restoring a gum line that has worn away because of a misaligned bite, aggressive tooth brushing, or periodontal disease. You deserve to enjoy an attractive, healthy smile without the discomforts of gum surgery.

Restore your gums the gentle way.
