Pinhole Laser Dental Surgery

During the pinhole surgical technique, we use a very fine needle to make a small hole in the existing gum tissue. We then use special instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue through the pinhole.

About Pinhole Laser Dental Surgery

Gum recession is one of those conditions that is associated with getting older and people who have noticeable gum recession are said to be, ‘long in the tooth’.

Age is not the only cause of gum recession, factors that can cause gum recession include; periodontal disease, genetic predisposition, aggressive tooth brushing and crooked teeth. Time tends to accentuate gum recession so that it becomes very noticeable and the roots of your teeth become exposed.

Gum recession causes deterioration to your teeth as well as your smile. Once the lower parts of your teeth are exposed, they are more inclined to decay because there is no enamel to protect the roots and sadly teeth are likely to become loose and fall out easily.

Having healthy gums results in having a healthy mouth, so you will need to make sure that your gums are in tip top condition before you embark on gum recession surgery.

If you are a current smoker or still have periodontal disease you will not be able to have treatment straight away. This would be a good time to give up smoking and get all of your other dental issues solved. Gum pinhole laser surgery is from £1000.

Brightens your smile instantly

Until recently the only treatment available to treat gum recession were skin grafts and sutures.

This effective gum recession treatment can be painful.

The first diagram shows what your mouth looks like after receiving conventional gum recession treatment.

The second diagram shows what your gums will look like after having gum recession treatment called the Pinhole Surgical Technique.

As you can see the only evidence of having had gum recession treatment is a small hole in your gum. The Pinhole Surgical Technique was devised by Dr John Chao, D.D.S and uses a needle sized hole instead of scalpel and stitches.

How The Pinhole Surgical Technique Works

Quite simply the Pinhole Surgical Technique works exactly as it is described.

A needle is inserted into the gum to make a hole then specially shaped dental instruments are used to stretch the gum and pull it down to cover the teeth.

What Is Gum Recession?

Gum recession refers to the loss of gum tissue along the gumline. This can occur as a result of periodontal disease (gingivitis, periodontitis, advanced periodontitis), the natural aging process, or abrasive habits when it comes to brushing the teeth.


Why Should Gum Recession Be Taken Seriously?

When gum recession occurs, the root structure of the tooth becomes exposed. This means that tooth decay and other problems can affect the teeth along the gumline and beneath it. Since healthy gums are essential for a healthy mouth, getting gum recession treated is important for lasting dental wellness.
