Receding Gums Treatment in One Visit
Dr. Ma and three of our Everlasting Smiles staff, including our hygienist, are certified in the Pinhole® Surgical Technique, a breakthrough treatment for gum recession patented by Dr. John Chao. Our team trained with Dr. Chao himself in Pasadena, CA! PST certified technicians are very uncommon, and Everlasting Smiles is proud to make this advanced treatment available to our patients at our Palm Beach Gardens, FL dental office.
Did you know gum recession affects up to 50% of the population? Receding gums can weaken your teeth, cause root damage, and even lead to tooth loss if left untreated.
The Pinhole® Surgical Technique halts gingival recession in just one visit, with no incisions, and no stitches. Unlike older treatments for gum recession, like painful gum grafting, the Pinhole Surgical Technique causes little to no pain or discomfort and offers patients more consistent results.
How Does Pinhole® Surgical Technique Work?
Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive procedure that moves the patient’s gum line back to its original, healthy position. Dr. Ma creates 0.1-inch “pinhole” openings above the exposed tooth roots and uses special tools to gently tug the gum tissue back down over the teeth—an instant improvement!
Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a huge improvement over traditional gum grafting, which relies on cutting out a strip of tissue from the roof of your mouth, and stitching it over the exposed tooth roots. This invasive surgery is painful and carries a long healing time. Pinhole® Surgical Technique empowers our patients to reclaim their oral health more quickly and with minimal post-operative symptoms.
Dr. Ma even performed Pinhole® Surgical Technique on our dental hygienist, Brenda, who was very excited to receive the procedure. You can call our office to ask her all about her experience!
Is Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation® The Right Choice For Your Smile?
Are you afraid to smile, or tired of having sensitive teeth? Cosmetically, gum recession creates the undesirable appearance of “long teeth,” which can make our Palm Beach Gardens patients feel self-conscious. If left untreated, receding gums can cause teeth to loosen, or even be lost. Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation® may be the right choice if you’ve suffered from:
- Gum disease
- Aggressive brushing
- Clenching and grinding
- A genetic predisposition
- Hormonal fluctuations (as with pregnancy)
- Periods of inadequate dental care
This advanced procedure has both preventive and restorative benefits. Whether you need gum rejuvenation on just one tooth, or an entire arch, Dr. Ma can dramatically improve your oral health and your smile's appearance in just one visit!
