Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation

Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation

Are you troubled by gum recession, which leads to discomfort, sensitivity, and an aesthetic challenge? At our Dental Office, Dr. Taís Trevelin (Lowry) performs the innovative pinhole surgical technique, a breakthrough in treating gum recession. Unlike traditional treatments that often deter patients due to the extensive surgery and lengthy recovery times, pinhole gum rejuvenation offers a minimally invasive and quicker solution.

Traditional Gum Grafting vs. Pinhole Rejuvenation

Traditionally, gum grafting has been the go-to treatment for gum recession. This procedure involves taking gum tissue from the roof of the mouth and stitching it to the area of the exposed root. While effective, it's invasive, requiring a recovery time of up to ten days, and sometimes demands multiple treatments for extensive gum recession.

On the other hand, the pinhole surgical technique revolutionizes the process:

Surgical Procedure:
Unlike gum grafting, which involves incisions and extractions of gum tissue, the pinhole technique utilizes a tiny entry point to adjust the gum's position over the exposed roots. Collagen strips are then introduced through this point, ensuring the gums remain in their new position.

Teeth Treated:
Traditional gum grafting limits the number of teeth treated in a single session. With pinhole rejuvenation, multiple teeth can be addressed in one visit.

The traditional method can span over 90 minutes. The pinhole procedure is completed in less than an hour.

Say goodbye to the 10-day recovery associated with stitches from gum grafting. Pinhole rejuvenation has virtually no downtime, with patients reporting minimal swelling.

The Pinhole Rejuvenation Experience

The procedure involves a specially designed instrument that gently repositions the gum in just a few minutes per tooth. Results are instantly visible, and the tiny entry point heals within a day. Post-treatment, patients experience negligible swelling and require no time off for recovery.
