Pinhole Surgical Technique™ delivers immediate results.

Healthy gums are an essential part of a beautiful smile. Your gums frame your teeth and when your gums recede, they may show too much of your tooth structure, including the roots. Gum recession also leaves your teeth vulnerable to tooth decay and infection. You need a receding gums treatment that can restore the natural barrier and beauty provided by your gum tissue, but may be hesitant to undergo gum recession surgery. The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ may be an ideal alternative. The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is a receding gums treatment that can offer excellent results in as little as one appointment.

How the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ Restores Your Healthy Gums

Dr. Marzieh Oghabian uses special dental tools to create a small opening in the gums around the affected tooth, loosening the connective tissue that holds your gum tissue in place. The gum line can then be guided down to a more desirable position. In this manner, the gum tissue of all of your affected teeth can be restored to healthier levels. This innovative receding gums treatment allows you to leave our office with an immediately healthier smile.

Do You Need Pinhole Surgical Technique™?

Gum recession occurs gradually and may not be noticeable to you until your condition advances. Your dentist or hygienist may mention the need for gum recession surgery or you may become aware that your teeth look longer in appearance. In any event, the source of your recession, such as gum disease, should be treated before you schedule your Pinhole Surgical Technique™ appointment. In addition to gum recession, Dr. Oghabian can also treat gum disease with laser gum surgery before restoring smiles with the Pinhole Surgical Technique™. Call our office to schedule your visit for this alternative to gum recession surgery today.

While dentures are still a popular and effective method of tooth restoration, their only advantage relates to dental implant cost in the short-term. As dentures may require numerous refitting appointments, repairs, or replacements, they may not offer an advantage over dental implant cost as a long-term investment. With regard to comfort, convenience, stability, bone health, and ease of maintenance, tooth implants are generally the recommended option.
