For those living with receding gums in Madison, MS, there is now new hope for improved gum line health and appearance without cutting and stitching of the gum tissue. Periodontist Dr. Roger B. Parkes now offers a treatment to Madison residents that provides immediate results with a minimally invasive procedure at the Periodontal Associates of Jackson, MS. The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is a patented procedure using special dental tools that uses existing healthy gum tissue to cover areas of recession.

With no cutting or stitching of gum tissue as in traditional gum grafting surgery, the Pinhole procedure results in little or no bleeding and swelling with rapid recovery time, usually with no need for pain medications. As the name implies, the doctor places a tiny pinhole in the gums to access beneath the tissue, and then gently stretches it to cover areas of recession.

The problem of receding gums that people have lived with in Madison, MS can be an indicator of serious dental health problems like periodontal disease or it may result from poor brushing technique or other causes. Whatever the cause, damage to delicate, receding gum tissue is serious and requires professional dental care to properly treat it before it progresses to cause irreversible damage. The infection that causes gum disease has easier access to more of the teeth and even the roots as gum recession progresses, with greater chance of continuing impacts to oral health.

Dr. Parkes is specially trained and certified to use the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ to improve his patients' gum line health in a simple office procedure. With each visit he can treat multiple teeth with the procedure, giving the patient a visibly improved gum line with a short office visit. Patients report rapid recovery time, usually able to be back to life activities within a day of the minimally invasive Pinhole™ surgery.
