The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is a new, revolutionary gum grafting treatment for receding gums that can make your smile healthy and beautiful in one day with minimal discomfort and a fast recovery.
• Faster results and minimal pain compared to tissue grafting
• Only a small, pinhole opening is needed (no incisions or sutures required)
• Reduced bleeding and swelling
• Shorter healing period
Dr. Crawford’s go-to-method for bringing comfort back is the Pinhole Surgical Technique™. This gum grafting treatment for receding gums is minimally invasive tissue treatment of the highest order. The pinhole strategy with the tiniest prick and advanced tools works with the localized gum already available. The gum is merely plied down over the tooth, bypassing stitches and painful grafting found in traditional gum therapy. You could have your treatment that day in under two hours and be eating supper that night. Dr. Crawford will guide you down the path that will bring about your best outcome.
