Steps of Pinhole Gum Surgery in Houston, TX
Our periodontist will make small holes in the gums to loosen the gum tissues. Next, we will gently tug the gum tissues over the areas of gum recession and cover your tooth roots. This incision-free technique does not require sutures. Instead, we will place collagen strips underneath your gums to hold them in place. These collagen strips fuse with your natural gum tissues, providing a smooth healing period.
