What is Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation?

While traditional treatments for gum recession involve incisions, gum grafts, and sutures, pinhole gum rejuvenation offers a low-impact, minimally-invasive gum treatment alternative.

The treatment uses a needle to create a small hole in the gum tissue. Specialized dental instruments are then inserted into the hole to move the tissue into place, effectively reversing gum recession. The entire procedure can be completed within a single visit with very little recovery time.

“Why Should I Get Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation?”

While many dental practices still recommend more traditional gum recession treatments, such as gum grafting, the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation method offers several advantages.

Minimally Invasive

Gum grafting involves transplanting tissue from other areas of the mouth– typically the palate –and suturing it onto the recessed gum tissue. This is a rather involved surgical procedure from which it may take up to two weeks to recover. Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation does not require incisions, grafts, or sutures and, with the help of a mild anesthetic, is virtually painless. The recovery time is also much shorter than traditional gum recession treatments.

High Success Rate

Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation has proven to be just as successful in the long term as traditional treatment options.

Treat Multiple Areas at Once

Unlike gum grafting, Pinhole gum treatment can be used to treat several recessed areas at once. That means fewer trips to the dentist and less time spent in recovery.

The Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Process

The pinhole gum rejuvenation process is straightforward and relatively painless. Here’s how we go about it:

Anesthetic

Before beginning the procedure, the doctor will administer a local anesthetic to ensure you experience as little discomfort as possible. General anesthesia and sedation are not required for Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation unless otherwise requested.

Treatment

Once the local anesthetic has taken effect, your doctor will create a small pinhole in your gum tissue above the recessed area. By inserting specialized dental instruments into the pinhole, they can easily manipulate the gum tissue to cover the exposed tooth tissue.

Once the doctor has readjusted the gum tissue, they apply collagen strips to keep the tissue in place.

After Care

Bleeding, swelling, and discomfort are minimal during Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation, and patients experience minimal discomfort afterward. Recovery usually takes no more than a day.

The Cost of Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation in Wellesley

In general, the cost of Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation can vary from around $2,500 to $5,000 per jaw. The exact cost of your Pinhole gum treatment will depend on the exact nature of your condition.
