The pinhole surgical technique fixes gum recession without scalpels or sutures.
Campbell, CA (PRWEB) September 08, 2014
Dr. Jeremy K. Ueno of Ueno Periodontics is proud to announce that he is now using a revolutionary new procedure to fix gum recession. Dr. Ueno has recently introduced the new pinhole surgical technique (PST), giving patients more effective and less invasive treatment for gum recession. This procedure is also known as the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation (PGR) and "Lunchtime Gum Lifts."
The pinhole surgical technique fixes gum recession without scalpels or sutures. It is minimally invasive, and some patients report little to no pain as early as 24 hours post-op. The procedure is faster than traditional gum drafting, and there is no need to take pieces of tissue from the roof of the mouth or other sites of the mouth.
Only about 500 dentists in the world are certified to perform this procedure, which is covered by most insurances. The procedure has been shown on The Doctors Show, ABC and NBC.
There a variety of reasons why patients experience gum recession, including genes, tobacco products, aggressive tooth brushing, insufficient dental care and periodontal diseases. When gum recession occurs, gaps form between the teeth and gum line, causing bacteria to easily build up. Not addressing your gum recession can eventually lead to both pain and possibly tooth loss.
