Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation

Gum recession can cause pain and sensitivity, leave your teeth vulnerable to decay, and affect the appearance of your smile.

At our Nutley, NJ, practice, Dr. Mark Khaimov offers the pinhole surgical technique as a minimally invasive alternative to gum grafting.

What makes this method so beneficial and effective?

Effective Relief for Receding Gums without the Discomfort

Less Invasive

Traditional gum grafts use a scalpel and sutures to restore the height of the gums. The pinhole surgical technique is a scalpel-free, suture-free alternative which uses tiny tools to reposition the gum tissue. 

Reduced Discomfort

This advanced treatment option uses only a small hole, called a pinhole, to access the underlying tissue. With this method, there is significantly less bleeding and discomfort both during and after the procedure.

Easier Recovery

Since this procedure does not involve incisions or sutures, there is little to no post-operative recovery time needed. In fact, some patients heal completely from a pinhole surgical procedure overnight.
