PINHOLE GUM SURGERY IN BURNABY, BC
Correct Gum Recession without Invasive Surgery
If you have receding gums because of tooth loss, gum disease, tissue inflammation, or other oral health problems, you may have been told you need to undergo a gum grafting procedure to restore your smile. As an alternative to gum grafting, we may recommend the Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™) to correct your gum recession. This is a minimally invasive technique that can create a more attractive, healthy smile without any incisions or sutures.
Our Pinhole Surgery Technique Process
The Pinhole Surgical Technique or Pinhole Surgery can effectively restore the gum line without any incisions or sutures. As a result, there is minimal bleeding, swelling, inflammation, and discomfort involved. We can treat multiple teeth in a single visit and you can walk away with a more attractive smile that same day. The procedure involves making a very small hole in the gums to loosen the tissue and move it over the areas where the gums have receded.
