Designed to offer a solution to gum recession, the Pinhole Surgical Technique is a unique method of resolving receding gums. Estimated to affect approximately half of Americans, receding gums can have a detrimental impact on your oral health. As gums recede, more of the tooth or the root is exposed and this can allow bacteria to build up.
Having the Pinhole Surgical Technique in Phoenix to resolve receding gums can reduce sensitivity caused by root exposure, prevent subsequent decay to the tooth and halt the development of gum disease. In addition to this, the advanced Pinhole Surgical Technique offers a cosmetic solution to the problem of receding gums.
How Does The Pinhole Surgical Technique Work?
When carrying out the Pinhole Surgical Technique, your periodontist will use a needle to create a tiny hole in the gum. With specialist instruments, the tissue of the gum can then be loosened slightly, which allows your periodontist to slide it over the exposed part of the tooth. With the Pinhole Surgical Technical, specialists can effectively return the gum to the appropriate area, without the need for incisions or sutures.
Receding gums, also known as gingival recession, are one of the most common oral health problems. With millions of people affected by the condition, the Pinhole Surgical Technique can be used to resolve the issue quickly and efficiently.
Is the Pinhole Surgical Technique Painful?
Due to the specially-designed instruments used during the procedure, Dr. Trujillo will be able to glide your gum tissue into its proper place with minimal discomfort. As the procedure doesn’t include any cutting or incisions being made, the risk of pain is greatly reduced.
Of course, Dr. Trujillo will be happy to discuss potential pain-relief options with you prior to the procedure being carried out. In some instances, it may be appropriate for a local anesthetic to be applied. This ensures that the area is fully numb for nervous patients. This measure can increase your confidence and ensure you feel comfortable throughout the procedure.
Furthermore, this scalpel-free method of treatment doesn’t typically cause any post-operative swelling, bruising, bleeding, or discomfort. With minimal recovery time, you should be able to return to your usual day-to-day activities swiftly following treatment with the Pinhole Surgical Technique in Phoenix
