Benefits of the Pinhole Surgical Technique

Gum Rejuvenation Benefits For Salt Lake City Patients

benefits of pinhole gum surgery Salt Lake City dentist Millcreek UTAre you noticing your teeth looking longer than usual? Or does it seem like your gums are shrinking? Is there something about your smile that doesn’t look right? It could be you have gum recession. This means your gums really are “shrinking” and your smile really doesn’t look like it used to. In fact, having gum recession not only doesn’t look very appealing, it can cause a lot of problems with your teeth. Your teeth may begin to loosen and you could even lose teeth!

In the past, the procedure to repair gum recession issues, periodontal grafting, was the only treatment available. Periodontal grafting is a highly invasive, surgical procedure. The actual periodontal grafting surgery takes quite a bit of time. Periodontal grafting surgery can be quite painful. There are several postoperative discomforts after periodontal grafting surgery–swelling, bleeding, pain. Add to that, because you have had a surgical procedure that takes time to heal, you will be eating a soft foods diet for some time–pudding, gelatin, clear soup.

Dr. Theurer of Theurer Family Dental in Sugar House offers a revolutionary new treatment that can replace traditional periodontal grafting. Dr. Theurer and his caring, well-trained team are confident that you will love this new treatment–Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation.

Benefits of Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation

  • The Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation technique takes about an hour. Periodontal grafting takes longer.
  • The Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation technique is non-invasive. This means that it is not considered surgery. It is a small pinprick in your gums and the process is all completed within the tiny pinprick.
  • Periodontal grafting has an extensive, often painful and long-lasting postoperative period. Often patients’ gums are swollen, bleeding and have quite a bit of pain. Because there are sutures with the periodontal grafting, most patients can’t eat solid foods for a long time. With the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation technique, many patients report that they have no swelling, no bleeding and little to no pain. In fact, many patients are able to eat a proper meal the same evening they’ve had the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation technique.
