Pinhole Surgical Technique in Santa Ana CA & Costa Mesa CA

Pinhole Gum Surgery—Soft Tissue Grafting

When more than a deep cleaning is necessary for gum recession treatment, Pinhole Surgical Technique is an effective gum restoration procedure that offers an alternative to traditional gum grafting.

What is Pinhole Surgical Technique?
The Pinhole Surgical Technique makes a small hole in your gums, allowing Dr. Mata, our certified Pinhole clinician, to add collagen material to stabilize the area of gum recession in your mouth. This innovative method is simple, suture-free, minimally invasive, and significantly less painful than a technique that cuts gum tissue.

What’s the difference between Pinhole Surgical Technique and Soft Tissue Grafting?
Traditional grafting involves rebuilding the gum line by suturing donor tissue in place, allowing it to join with the existing tissue and heal over time. Although soft tissue grafting is effective, Pinhole provides a better patient experience while delivering identical results.

Benefits of Pinhole

  • No incisions
  • Suture-free
  • Quick
  • Convenient
  • Effective
  • Minimal pain, swelling, bleeding
  • Short recovery time
  • Instant cosmetic results

Recovery and Aftercare
The recovery time for Pinhole Surgical Technique is remarkably short, and the pain is virtually nonexistent. Dr. Mata provides patients with post-op care instructions that include using a prescription mouthwash in lieu of brushing for 6 weeks following the procedure. A soft diet is recommended for a short period after surgery, and we will schedule a series of follow-up appointments with you to ensure proper healing.

Pinhole Surgical Technique: Estimating Your Cost
The cost of Pinhole Surgical Techniques as compared to traditional gum grafting treatments is quite low due the limited number of treatments needed. Because we can treat multiple areas during a single procedure, requiring no incisions and minimal recovery time, overall expenses shrink considerably.
