The Minimally Invasive Gum Recession Treatment

We offer the minimally invasive Pinhole Surgical Technique as an alternative to traditional gum grafting.

Treatment of Receding Gums

Sensitive teeth and receding gums are often related. Many times, patients don’t realize that gum recession is occurring until they experience the symptoms of sensitive teeth. These uncomfortable and often painful symptoms include tooth sensitivity to extreme temperatures when eating and drinking and the appearance of teeth that are longer than others when they are observed in a mirror. Receding gums treatment in the past has involved traditional gum graft procedures, which involve taking tissue from the roof of the mouth. When possible, our doctors can provide the revolutionary Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™), a minimally invasive way to treat gum recession that avoids taking tissue from the palate.

The Benefits of Choosing Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST)

  • No Scalpels

  • Avoids Taking Tissue from the Roof of the Mouth

  • Natural-Looking Results

  • Faster Recovery Than Traditional Grafting


No Cutting Needed With PST

The Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) allows our doctors to replace gum tissue with no cutting and minimal, if any, stitches. Instead of traditional gum recession surgery that involved cutting delicate gum tissue, we use a simple, thin tool and a collagen material to place gum tissue back where it belongs.
This safe and effective procedure results in a beautiful smile with a fraction of the healing time of traditional gum recession treatment. Because there is no cutting and no need to take donor tissue from the palate, patients feel minimal discomfort and pain. They are able to head back to work and regular activities with hardly any downtime.
