Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation in NYC

What is Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation?

Gum recession can be a lot of pain. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST), also called Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation is an incredible procedure that allows the Doctor to make small pinholes through which he inserts specially designed instruments for gently loosening up gum tissue without cutting or stitching anything at all--and because there aren't any post surgical symptoms like pain or bleeding; patients enjoy instant relief right after their surgery session ends.

What is gum recession and why is it bad?

When your gum tissue wears away or recedes, the tooth's root becomes exposed and this makes it easier for bacteria to build up in between teeth where there should be none at all. The supporting tissues around your teeth also weaken over time if left untreated which can lead to more gum and bone loss.
Gum recession is a common problem for most patients. The symptoms may include tooth sensitivity, longer-looking tooth, root notch at gum line. It is often caused by abnormal bite, heavy brushing, aging and gum diseases. After resolving the causes of the condition, gum recession should be treated early to achieve great success.

How does Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation compare to gum grafting?

Gum grafting involves cutting a piece of gum from the roof of your mouth. The gum line over the receded tooth is cut and lifted, and the new tissue is placed over the recessed gums and sutured in place. Gum grafting typically takes 2-3 weeks to heal. Normally there are a lot more pain and discomfort associated with gum grafting.
With Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation, you don't have to worry about cutting or sutures. The only opening is a tiny pinprick which usually heals within one day.
