What is pinhole gum lifting?

Pinhole gum lifting is a non-surgical treatment that can address gum recession, exposed tooth roots, or other cosmetic dental concerns. It is commonly referred to as a minimally-invasive gum lift. 

Reasons for pinhole gum lifting

If you have noticed gum recession from aggressive brushing, misaligned teeth, teeth grinding, gum disease, or another factor, Dr. Amin Samadian and his highly trained staff may suggest pinhole gum lifting as an alternative to surgery.

What does pinhole gum lifting involve?

During a minimally-invasive gum lift, Dr. Amin Samadian and his team will create a small incision into your gums with a pinhole. Next, they’ll use a tiny device to gently reposition your gum tissue by pulling it down and producing a healthier, more attractive gum line by adding artificial graft materials through the pinhole in the gums, removing the need for taking a piece of the gum from the roof of the mouth (the method used in traditional gum grafting methods). 

After he establishes your new gum line, Dr. Amin Samadian and his team will insert tiny collagen sticks to encourage the production of collagen and allow for natural, sustainable outcomes. This procedure takes anywhere between 1-2 hours to complete and involves no cuts, sutures, or general anesthesia. 

Is pinhole gum lifting painful?

Because pinhole gum lifting involves a local anesthetic and no cuts or sutures, anyone who undergoes pinhole gum lifting can expect the procedure to be quite comfortable.

What results will I see?

Following a minimally-invasive gum lift, you’ll possess a more beautiful smile as well as healthier teeth and gums.
