At Green Dentistry, Dr. Nammy Patel and our team believe in contemporary approaches to dental care through advanced, gentle treatments. For those who suffer from the effects of gum recession, Dr. Patel is certified to offer the minimally invasive Pinhole® Surgical Technique as an alternative to traditional gum grafting. Treating gum recession with the Pinhole® Surgical Technique will protect your sensitive tooth roots from damage and improve your oral health, appearance and tooth stability. Avoiding treatment for gum recession can lead to an unattractive smile, loose teeth, or even tooth loss. Dr. Patel believes in the Pinhole® Surgical Technique because it can effectively treat gum recession without the need of scalpels, sutures or painful grafts.
Pinhole Surgical Technique: Gentle correction of gum recession through minimally invasive techniques without the need for scalpels, sutures, and with minimal discomfort or bleeding.
The Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a graft-free, non-surgical treatment that corrects gum recession in a gentle way that promotes overall wellbeing. When performing the Pinhole® Surgical Technique, Dr. Patel will only need to make a pinhole sized opening in your gums just above the site of recession. Using small instruments, Dr. Patel will gently readjust the gum tissue to cover the exposed tooth roots. The gums will be held in place with collagen strips to add support and hold them in their new position. We choose to offer the Pinhole® Surgical Technique because of the gentle and speedy nature of treatment. There is no cutting or grafting and multiple sites of gum recession can be treated by the Pinhole® Surgical Technique in one session. You will be able to go back to your normal routine later that very day!
Patients who are seeking minimally invasive, advanced techniques for their dental care often choose the Pinhole® Surgical Technique when receiving gum recession treatment. The procedure aligns with our core values of creating attractive, healthy smiles with minimal discomfort and long-term results. Dr. Patel has received extensive specialty training in order to offer the Pinhole® Surgical Technique so our patients can enjoy gentle gum recession treatment in the spa-like atmosphere of our practice in Union Square.
