The new simple and suture-free method for healthy gums.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™ is a procedure to correct receding gums. Dr. Khaimov uses specialized instruments to make a small hole in your gum and add collagen material which stabilizes the area of gum recession. This new method is simple, suture-free and minimally invasive.
This procedure does not require any incisions, stitches, or a second surgical site. Bleeding is minimal and recovery time is quick. Most patients can return to their normal activities the very same day.
In addition to a less aesthetically pleasing smile, without treatment receding gums can leave the teeth exposed to bacteria that will build up and cause infection or disease. Receding gums can happen gradually, and many are not aware that their gums are receding. Sensitve teeth and an uneven gum line are symptoms of gum recession. Pinhole Surgical Technique PST™ can fix receding gums by covering the roots of the teeth, protecting them from external stimuli that can cause infection and decay.
While gum recession is usually viewed as one of the symptoms of gum disease, it can also be caused by insufficient tooth brushing, overly aggressive tooth brushing, or from certain medications that can affect gum health. Gum recession can even be caused by orthodontic treatments and appliances like braces or retainers.
We offer the latest in periodontal technology. Pinhole Surgery Technique™ gives you the benefits of healthier gums while shortening recovery time and risk compared to other methods.
Unlike gum grafting, The Pinhole Surgery Technique™ is minimally invasive and does not cut gum tissue, making it a much less painful option. Gum recession was traditionally treated using a connective tissue graft, which “harvests” gum tissue from the roof of the mouth and then sutures it to the affected area. Connective tissue grafts have a recovery period of up to three weeks and patients often experience side effects including: gum pain, swelling and bleeding. Palatal tissue grafts (tissue taken from the roof of your mouth) also have a different aesthetic appearance than normal gum tissue, as the color and texture of roof tissue does not match that of your gums. Other methods, such as using donor tissues, may require intricate suturing, leading to possible complications and infection.
Due to the less invasive nature of Pinhole Surgery Technique™ recovery time is much faster than other methods. Now the results of a beautiful healthy smile and an improved quality of life are even closer.
Don't let an unsightly smile be an excuse for not expressing yourself. Pinhole Surgery Technique™ can be the solution you need to smile and speak with confidence.
Pinhole Surgery Technique™ is a breakthrough that offers a less invasive procedure than other methods.
