Pinhole Surgical Technique

Pinhole Surgical Technique


How Does Pinhole Surgical Technique Work?

The Pinhole Surgical Technique for gum restoration at Smileboston Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry is a new procedure designed to be minimally invasive. It requires a single pinhole of entry at specific locations along with adjusting the under layer of gum tissue to form a perfect smile. The skin under the gums moves the gum tissue to fill in the open areas and cover the exposed roots of teeth – no stitches needed. With great success, this gum restoration surgery allows you achieve a winning smile in one visit.


The Benefits of Pinhole Surgical Technique

Thanks to the minimally invasive techniques involved, our patients in the Boston, MA area can enjoy a more confident smile, immediately after their procedure. With minimum discomfort, this procedure is highly recommended for those whose gums have receded and are causing concern, both aesthetically and physically.


What Causes Gum Recession?

A number of periodontal conditions and physical factors such as tooth decay or brushing too hard can cause gum recession. Dr. Spitz can help you to identify the source of your gum recession and learn ways to avoid it after the procedure.

 


Gum Recession and Your Health

As most people know, keeping your teeth and gums healthy can lead to an overall improvement in health. In fact, your dental health affects your heart and your entire body. By maintaining your oral health, you’re maintaining the health of your body.

 


Pinhole Surgical Technique vs. Gum Grafting

Traditional gum grafts are far more invasive and require stitches and a lengthy recovery time. The new Pinhole Surgery Technique is instantaneous, less painful, and quick to heal. At the end of your visit, you will notice an immediate change in your gums and your smile.


Are You a Candidate?

In general, anyone with extensive gum recession whose gums are otherwise healthy is a candidate for the Pinhole Surgical Technique. Patients are encouraged to consult with Dr. Spitz about the condition of their gums and to learn if pinhole surgery is the right procedure for them.
