Pinhole Gum Surgery

Pinhole Gum Surgery

Gum recession is a common condition that plagues a large percentage of the population and can be caused by the following:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Stress
  • Teeth grinding/clenching,
  • Overzealous brushing or improper brushing technique
  • Insufficient dental care
  • Trauma to the gum.
  • Tongue or lip piercings
  • Misaligned teeth

What are the signs and symptoms of gum recession?

Some of the common signs and symptoms of gum recession are:

  • Tooth/root sensitivity
  • Longer appearing teeth due to root exposure
  • Gaps between teeth that appear like “black triangles”.

If you have a high smile line, gum recession can be more obviously noticed by you or others.

How can you fix gum recession?

In order to repair gum recession, conventional gum surgery involves taking tissues from a donor site (typically the roof of the mouth) and transplanting into the recipient site (area of gum recession). Often this conventional method involves a lot of post-operative pain and discomfort for up to a few weeks. Also, if there are multiples sites of recession that needs to be treated, it may require multiple surgeries/visits and can affect one’s work and daily activity.

How is Pinhole Surgical Technique different from conventional technique?

The Pinhole Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive technique where there is no taking tissues from a donor site. The surgery is done through a tiny pinhole instead of making large incisions. This minimally invasive technique yields very little pain or discomfort and you can easily go back to work the next day. Even if there are multiple areas of recession that require treatment, using the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we can restore your gumline in a single visit.

The care I received was courteous and very professional. The dentist was extremely gentle. She replaced a filling which I had lost and all I can say is “It’s BEAUTIFUL!”. The experience was painless and actually pleasant. My concerns about dental amalgams and root canals were taken into consideration and I felt like I was genuinely listened to. I highly recommend this dental office! :-)

Very positive experience. The reception was friendly and helpful. I am a little apprehensive, as are most I think when visiting the dentist, but this team was kind, gentle, but also very informative. Dr. Aujla has a very peaceful demeanour, I would definitely recommend this team for a stress free dental experience.

The lovely woman who did my cleaning was warm and welcoming, and I felt so at ease with her that it was almost as good as getting a massage! It was the most relaxed I’ve ever been at the dentist. Also, I loved how she was caring and didn’t make fake “small talk” with me. A total delight! The dentist was also warm, gentle, sweet, and she seemed so relaxed. It was kind of like being in the hands of angels. Not exaggerating! Thank you, Lara

Thank you for the great first impression! As someone who has worked in the service industry for more than 30 years I can tell you are doing a great job! I was greeted by 2 lovely assistants at the front desk one of which actually remembered my email address when I mentioned who I was – that’s a clear sign of paying attention to details and connecting to the clients who are coming in. The rest of my visit was as welcoming and also incredibly informative. I learned more about my teeth and loved the digital imaging that really showed me what Dr. Ruby was explaining. I’ve already recommended the office to my 2 daughters and their families and I will continue to spread the word. Thank you again for the great experience I look forward to my next visit!
