Here is another example of the Pinhole technique. This patient had severe recession on almost every tooth. In one visit we were able to correct this recession with the minimally invasive technique! Check out more on the Pinhole page!
This patient was tired of always catching food in her teeth where her gums had receded. You can see the yellow root surface that was exposed in the before picture. The minimally invasive pinhole graft allowed this patient to go back to work the next day with no pain. She is now over a year out and has had no relapse!
With severe recession on his lower arch he was in danger of getting cavities on his root surfaces due to the brown decalcified areas. With the Pinhole graft we were able to gain almost all of his recession back. One advantage to Pinhole over other grafts is the ability to treat multiple teeth in one visit.
On this lady we treated all her upper teeth with the Pinhole technique. We removed the old broken down fillings near the root surfaces and were able to bring the tissue back to its original position. This really is gum rejuvenation! She had chronic sensitivity on those root surfaces lacking good enamel protection. Not anymore!
This is a great example of severe recession on the canine tooth or eye tooth. This is one of my favorite areas to treat because the results are just fabulous. No more chance for root cavities or sensitivity on this patient with a pinhole graft treatment.
This patient had his upper right teeth treated with Pinhole. He had very little swelling and no post op discomfort. The exposed root surfaces in the before are now fully covered thanks to this non invasive technique to treat recession.
