If you or anyone you know has ever suffered from gum recession, you know just how debilitating this disease can be. In the past, the only way to correct this issue was by using connective tissue grafts. This complex procedure involved two surgical sites combined with a very long recovery period. The results were successful, but the pain and discomfort patients had to endure was too much to bear. Thank goodness for the 21st century and the great advancements that have been made. Now, there is treatment that can help you cope with gum recession — Pinhole Surgical Technique. What makes this system so great is it doesn’t use incisions or sutures. Simply put, it’s the finest gum surgery available at our office in Los Angeles, CA. Your gum line could use a little love, and Dr. Latner is the guy who can restore your gums back to normal.

Incision-free? Check. Free of sutures? Check. The only hole that is made is with a needle, then Dr. Latner reaches into his bag of specially designed instruments to help loosen gum tissue. Said gum tissue is then gently placed over the receded part of a tooth. If you’re curious why gums recede in the first place, it was brought about by certain factors including smoking and poor dental hygiene habits. It’s pretty rough stuff. But, with this newest technology, we can bring your gums back to working order and give them a beautiful appearance.
It’s a relatively painless post-op experience, too. There have been minimal reports of pain, swelling and bleeding, so treatment is smooth..
