About the Procedure

Pinhole gum rejuvenation1 is a sophisticated dental technique designed to enhance the color, contours, and health of the periodontium. Unlike traditional gum grafting procedures, pinhole gum rejuvenation is minimally invasive and does not require any cutting or suturing. Instead, a small pinhole is made in the gum tissue, and special instruments are used to gently reposition the gumline, covering exposed tooth roots and creating a more aesthetic appearance.

Other gum rejuvenation treatments include flap surgery or pocket reduction surgery. During this procedure, your dentist creates a flap in the gum, which is folded back to clean the underlying surface. The gum tissue is then sutured back into place. A soft tissue graft is another alternative, where the graft is obtained from the roof of your mouth or another source, to cover the exposed tooth roots. This technique aims to promote tissue growth by placing biocompatible material on the damaged tissue or bone surface. A similar approach involves applying a special gel to the affected root, which aids in the development of new tissue.

Who Is a Candidate?

The procedure is an excellent option for individuals who have receding gums, which can be caused by gum disease, aggressive tooth brushing, or aging. Candidates may have symptoms such as tooth sensitivity, longer-looking teeth, or a displeasing gumline. Schedule a consultation with us to determine if you are a suitable candidate for gum rejuvenation in Boca Raton.
