Dentist offers pinhole treatment for gum recession
If you are one of the millions of people who suffer from gum recession, you may be interested in learning about the options available to you for restoring your gum line and replacing gum tissue over exposed tooth roots. Dr. Claire Cho of Aliso Viejo, California, is pleased to offer a unique treatment strategy for treating patients with gum recession called the Pinhole gum treatment. The pinhole treatment for receding gums is an advanced technique that has many benefits to the patient.
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.
Who is a candidate for the Pinhole gum treatment?
During a consultation visit with Dr. Claire Cho, patients are evaluated to determine if they are proper candidates for this procedure. An evaluation may include a physical examination and x-rays to check the health of the smile as a whole.
