How Pinhole® Works

The Latest Scalpel-Free, Suture-Free, Graft-Free
Treatment Option for Receding Gums

The internationally acclaimed Pinhole® technique addresses gum recession, a problem that is found in half the U.S. population. Through a tiny hole made by a needle, specially designed instruments are used to gently loosen healthy gum tissue and glide it over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no cutting or stitching, patients can expect only minimal post-operative symptoms and are able to resume light normal activities with 24-48 hours after treatment.
