When it comes to keeping your mouth healthy, it’s important not to focus just on your teeth, but on your gums, too. After all, gum disease is the #1 cause of tooth loss in adults.
At Allure Dental Center, we offer a range of services to keep your gums happy, including the Pinhole® Surgical Technique.
Why Choose Pinhole Gum Therapy?
In the past, advanced gum disease was commonly treated with surgical gum grafting. With the Pinhole Technique, you can avoid the pain and recovery of cutting gum tissue. Some of the main benefits that make Pinhole treatment an attractive alternative, include:
- It utilizes minimally-invasive techniques
- Avoids the bleeding, swelling and pain associated with invasive gum grafting
- Multiple teeth can be treated in one visit, your whole mouth can be treated in as few as two appointments
- No incisions or sutures
- A healthier, more attractive smile
- Quick recovery and minimal healing time
- Immediate results
What Is Pinhole Therapy?
When advanced gum disease causes gum recession, pain and sensitivity result. Not only is your oral health compromised, but your teeth also take on a “long” appearance, affecting your confidence.
To improve your oral health and the appearance of your smile, we use a small pin-like tool to create a tiny access point through your healthy gum tissue. Then your gums are gradually guided back into their proper levels, where collagen strips are used to hold them into place.
Your procedure will take place in the comfort of our Mountain View office, and the results will be visible immediately.
