Pin hole Surgery

What is the Pinhole Surgical Technique?

(Results may vary on a case-to-case basis)

The Pinhole Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive gum recession treatment that does not involve incisions or stitches.

Traditional treatments for gum recession require soft tissue grafts to re-build the gum line. This soft tissue would be stitched into place to join with the existing tissue as it healed. Whilst this traditional technique is effective, the Pinhole Surgical Technique creates a better patient experience as it is minimally invasive and doesn’t involve any incisions.

Pinhole Surgical treatments are case selective and can only be carried out on patients who meet the qualifying criteria, otherwise conventional gum recession treatments or keyhole gum surgery would be indicated.

Dr Darfoor will be better able to guide you and advise you at consultation if you are suitable for this procedure.

About the Pinhole Surgical Technique procedure

During the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we use a very fine needle to make a small hole in the existing gum tissue. We then use special instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue through the pinhole. The tools we use help to expand the gum line to cover the exposed root structure.

It gives an excellent outcome that is immediately seen.
