What is pinhole gum lifting?

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

Reasons for pinhole gum lifting

If you are living with gum recession that came from aggressive brushing, misaligned teeth, teeth grinding, gum disease, or another factor, Dr. Amin Samadian may recommend the pinhole surgical technique in the Orinda, Lafayette, and Moraga areas as an alternative to surgery.

What does pinhole gum lifting involve?

During a minimally-invasive treatment for receding gums, Dr. Amin Samadian will make a small incision into your gums with a pinhole. Then, he’ll use a tiny instrument to gently reposition your gum tissue by pulling it down and creating a healthier, more attractive gum line by adding synthetic graft materials through the pinhole in the gums which eliminates the need for taking a piece of the gum from roof of the mouth which is what’s used in traditional gum grafting methods. 

After he establishes your new gum line, Dr. Amin Samadian will insert tiny collagen sticks to support the production of collagen and allow for natural, sustainable results. This procedure takes anywhere between 1 and 2 hours to complete and does not involve any cuts, sutures, or general anesthesia. 

Is the pinhole surgical technique painful?

If you qualify as a candidate for Pinhole, since the Pinhole surgical technique involves a local anesthetic and no cuts or sutures, you can expect the procedure to be quite comfortable.

What results will I see?

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