The Pinhole Surgical Technique™: Fast and Easy Solution to Gum Tissue Recession
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ with Dr. Steve Wegner is an easier, more efficient, and more comfortable gum recession treatment for patients. Dr. Wegner is one of only two dentists in the area trained and certified to perform this advanced care.
When gum tissue starts to pull away from the tooth roots, the smile look less attractive, unhealthy, and elderly. It can lead to tooth sensitivity. Without its natural protection, teeth and supporting bones are also more prone to decay and breakdown.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is a proven, advanced procedure that repairs recession quickly and restores health and attractiveness to the gums.
Traditional gum grafting surgery requires making incisions and extracting tissue from other places in the mouth or acquiring tissue from a donor bank and stitching it to the gums. It takes time and can be uncomfortable.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is a minimally invasive treatment that utilizes unique, dental tools and techniques. A very small pinhole is made in the tissue near the recession sites. Through this opening, the gum tissue is then loosened and expanded over the roots to increase tooth coverage and create a healthier, more natural looking gum line. Small strips of collagen material are placed in the treated areas to promote healing and support the gums at their new level.
The procedure is very tolerable and causes minimal discomfort. We can treat several recession areas the same day, unlike other grafting procedures that can require repeat visits.
Comfortable, state of the art gum recession treatment is now available. Call us today for a personal Pinhole Surgical Technique™ consultation with Dr. Wegner. 402-498-0400.
