Pinhole Treatment for Receding Gums in Aliso Viejo CA Area

What are the advantages of the Pinhole treatment for receding gums?

The primary benefits of using the Pinhole technique include:

  • Reduced healing time
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Minimally invasive
  • No scarring
  • No need for general anesthesia
  • Eliminates the need for gum grafting

How is the Pinhole gum treatment procedure performed?

The pinhole surgical technique is a scalpel-free procedure that gently loosens the gum tissue and repositions it over the receded area. In some cases, we can even lengthen short teeth with this pinhole method. The dentist uses a “pinhole” sized hole to bring the gum tissue over the tooth with specialized instruments and a unique method. The Pinhole gum recession technique is an excellent solution for those who may not be candidates for traditional grafting techniques or prefer noninvasive procedures with faster results and less downtime.
