Pinhole Gum Recession Treatment - Bradenton, FL

Reverse Gum Recession and Renew Your Oral Health

Revolutionizing Gum Recession Treatment Methods

Gum recession can be a source of frustration and self-consciousness, impacting both appearance and oral health. Individuals with receding gums may experience discomforts such as exposed tooth roots, sensitivity to temperature changes, and an uneven gum line. Traditional gum graft surgery, while effective, often entails significant discomfort and lengthy recovery times.

However, modern techniques like the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST) or pinhole gum surgery offer a better alternative. This minimally invasive gum graft surgery provides a more comfortable and efficient solution for restoring receded gums and rejuvenating smiles, ensuring aesthetic enhancement and improved oral well-being.

What Causes Receding Gums?

Gum recession can occur due to various factors, including advanced gum disease, aggressive brushing, misaligned teeth, genetics, grinding and clenching habits, or long-term tobacco use. If left untreated, gum recession typically progresses, compromising the stable support system that maintains teeth in place. This gum recession may result in teeth shifting, becoming loose, or even falling out. At Eastman Craighead Periodontics, our primary objective during receding gums treatment is to ensure long-term gum health stability, allowing you to cherish your smile for years.

The Benefits of Pinhole Gum Surgery

What to Expect from Pinhole Surgical Treatment

Our team may suggest pinhole gum surgery if you’ve experienced gum tissue loss due to gum disease, teeth-grinding habits, or improper brushing techniques. Unlike traditional gum grafting surgery, which involves removing tissue from the palate and suturing it to the gum line, receding gums treatment like PST offers a noninvasive alternative with immediate cosmetic benefits. This procedure restores the gum line without the need for incisions or sutures.

During PST, we create a small hole in the gum tissue and utilize specialized instruments to gently loosen and reposition healthy gum tissue to cover exposed root surfaces. This straightforward process effectively restores the gum line without the complexity of extensive surgery. PST allows us to treat multiple teeth in one visit, providing efficient and comprehensive care.
