Patients suffering from receding gums are now able to improve their smile without undergoing invasive surgery with the innovative pinhole surgical technique. However, because the procedure is incredibly precise and requires extensive training, there are few dentists in New England are who are certified to perform the pinhole surgical technique.
Fortunately, Smileboston Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, is proud to announce that two of our cosmetic dentists now provide this life-changing procedure to Boston area patients. In addition to Dr. Steven D. Spitz, Dr. Kyle Findly, was recently certified to perform the pinhole surgical technique, expanding treatment to Smileboston’s South Shore location.
Exploring the Pinhole Surgical Technique
How Does This Approach Fix Gum Recession?
The pinhole surgical technique is an effective dental procedure for reversing gum recession. When performing this minimally invasive procedure, Dr. Kyle Findly does not use sutures, scalpels, or incisions of any kind. Instead, he relies on gently maneuvering the mouth’s existing gum tissue and using it to lower the entire gum line.
What Are the Advantages of This Technique?
The pinhole surgical technique has several benefits not found with traditional procedures. For example, existing gum tissue is adjusted instead of using soft tissue grafts making the pinhole technique much less invasive and requiring shorter recovery time. As such, patients experience less discomfort both during and after treatment. Best of all, patients will enjoy beautiful, natural-looking results.
