The “Pinhole Surgical Technique” is a breakthrough in conquering gum recession. “This technique replaces gum grafting, which was a painful and not very successful way to restore gums to their natural position around the teeth,” says Dr. Bruce Fine of Fine Dental Care in Wayne. For years, dentists have been treating receding gums by cutting tissue from the roof of the mouth, and then stitching it into the void where the gum has moved away from the tooth. It was very painful and a patient would be on a very restrictive diet for several weeks to heal. “But that’s all changed now,” says Dr. Fine, “This is an incision-free, suture-free, painless treatment for “receding gums”.
How It Works
Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST) works through gently loosening the gum tissue and gliding it over the receded part of the tooth. This is accomplished using specially designed instruments inside of a small pinhole made in the gum tissue by a needle. Since there is no incision or suturing in a PST treatment, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms, such as bleeding, pain and swelling.
Besides the health and comfort advantages of treating receding gums and covering roots that are causing pain, most patients are also pleasantly surprised after a PST treatment by the instant cosmetic improvement.
A Cost Effective Improvement
This ground-breaking, knife-less, stitch-free invention for repairing receding gums is deemed predictable, effective, minimally invasive, and a cost-effective alternative to traditional grafting techniques. “I’m excited by how high the success rate has been with this treatment, and so are my patients who’ve had the procedure,” says Dr. Fine.
