Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation
We are proud to offer the very latest gum recession breakthrough treatment that has been described as quick, easy and instantly pleasing.
Pinhole® Gum Rejuvenation is a minimally invasive procedure that allows us to restore the level of a patient’s gums after they have receded. The procedure requires no cutting, no stitches, virtually no downtime and can often be completed in less than an hour.
Why do gums recede?
Gum recession is a process resulting from three primary factors
- Abrasion from the interaction of teeth with other materials. This is usually due to using a hard bristled toothbrush or an incorrect brushing technique. Abrasion can also result from using an abrasive toothpaste.
- Attrition from tooth-to-tooth contact. Recession can occur when patients grind their teeth also known as bruxism.
- Erosion from when teeth and gums come into contact with environmental or dietary acids.
