What Is the Pinhole Surgical Technique & How is It Performed?
The pinhole surgical technique is a distinct dental procedure that is performed on patients with receding gums. The purpose of this procedure is to repair gum recession by correcting uneven gums that have retracted revealing the crown of the tooth. During pinhole gum surgery, small holes are produced in the gum where recession has taken place. With a special tool designed for this procedure, the gum is massaged until flexible and is pushed or pulled into its correct position. In the final step of the pinhole gum rejuvenation process, collagen is used to reposition the gum and keep it intact and immovable.

Regardless of the cause surrounding gum recession, you are likely eligible for pinhole dental surgery. The likelihood depends strongly on the state of the receded gums. If there is a clear indication of gums that have withdrawn from the teeth, we strongly encourage you to contact us.
