Although the name may sound slightly intimidating, pinhole surgery is a high-tech, minimally invasive treatment plan for receding gums. This technique is unique because the entire mouth can be treated in one visit versus other treatment plans that require multiple visits and more in-depth, uncomfortable procedures. It is also beneficial to patients due to the lack of invasive tools needed for the procedure and the shorter recovery time. Previously, this procedure was only provided by periodontist specialists, and we are thrilled to be able to offer this procedure to our patients.
Who Can Benefit from Pinhole Surgery?
Pinhole surgery is ideal for treating patients with receding gums to provide a natural-looking gumline and to prevent potential problems associated with receding gums. The health of your gums is essential for your overall oral health. Your gums are the tissue that surrounds and protects your teeth and underlying bone. Over time, it is possible for your gums to wear away and begin to pull back from your teeth, resulting in gum recession. This can make the teeth more susceptible to issues such as tooth decay, infection, sensitivity, and eventually tooth loss.
Pinhole surgery provides our patients with excellent, natural-looking, and long-lasting results. If you suffer from receding gums and are interested in knowing if you might be a candidate for pinhole surgery or learning about what other high-tech procedures we offer at our location in Canandaigua, NY, please call us today. We look forward to serving you soon!
