Green City Dental, based in Edmonds, Washington, has announced that dentist, Rebecca Taylor is recommending the use of a minimally invasive procedure for gum recession. This procedure is also known as the “pinhole technique.” The traditional method of treating gum recession is gingival grafting, which involves surgically removing some tissue from the room of the mouth and grafting it to the gums for the purpose of covering the exposed teeth roots. The new Chao pinhole surgical technique does require any cutting. Instead, tiny holes are made in the gums through which the dental surgeon loosens and guides existing soft tissues over the areas of recession. Rather than sutures, collagen strips are used to hold the gum tissue in place, thus promoting tissue growth that will hold the gums securely in their new position.
Rebecca Taylor herself explains, “The Pinhole Technique, which was developed about 15 years ago by Dr. John Chao is simple, minimally-invasive, and effective. We use a needle to make small holes in your gums, then insert a special instrument to gently loosen and move the gum tissue over the recession. We then place collagen strips over the sites worked on to help maintain stability as the tissues heal. Patients who have had the procedure typically report less pain, less swelling, and less bleeding than they might with conventional surgery. However, if you have a lot of bone loss, thin existing gum tissues, or active gum disease, Pinhole Surgery might not be recommended.”
