While gum recession is a common side effect of gum disease, it can also be caused by things like medications or improper brushing techniques. Gum recession can also be caused by orthodontic treatments or traditional gum surgery, as healthy tissue is removed in order to eradicate infection from the mouth and gums. 

The Pinhole™ Surgical Technique was developed in order to restore smiles with an incision-free procedure. As we celebrate National Without a Scalpel Day on January 16th, we are proud to help our patients understand the benefits that come with scalpel-free treatment options for gum disease in any stage.

How It Works

The procedure is performed as special instruments are used to make small holes in the gum tissue in order to loosen it so it can be moved over the areas of the gums that are recessed. This is a simple, minimally invasive procedure that can restore your smile without sutures, stitches or scarring.

Benefits of Pinhole ™ Surgical Technique

Our goal is to treat gum disease in the most effective, non-invasive way possible. PST offers the following benefits to patients:

  • No sutures or incisions
  • Faster healing and recovery time
  • Treatment of multiple teeth in one visit
  • Visibly healthier and more attractive smile after treatment
  • No pain, swelling or bleeding that is common with gum surgery
  • Immediate aesthetic value

Close to half of Americans suffer from some type of gum disease, and many are unaware that treatment is just a phone call away. While the thought of gum surgery may be daunting for some, laser surgery offer benefits that make the process easier and less anxiety-inducing. As a periodontist in Ormond Beach, FL, Dr. Kenzik is proud to offer this valuable technique to patients that suffer from gum disease.
