National Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Month – November 2022

National Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Month is observed in November to raise public awareness about receding gums and pinhole gum rejuvenation. Gum infections could have had long-term consequences in the past. Dentists can now use a simple pinhole gum rejuvenation procedure to treat such issues.

Many periodontal disease and gum recession patients want to restore their gum line and protect their tooth roots. Most people, on the other hand, do not want to go through the typically difficult and time-consuming process of traditional gum grafting. Gum rejuvenation with pinholes is the first minimally invasive treatment option for reversing gum recession.

History of National Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Month

John Chao D.D.S., a dentist, educator, and inventor, devised and developed pinhole gum rejuvenation and has personally educated over 3,000 practitioners on the technique, which is now available in the United States, Europe, Asia, and South America. Many dental experts around the world see the operation as a standard of care.

Pinhole gum rejuvenation is a new procedure that can be used in place of traditional gum surgery. The pinhole technique eliminates the need for tissue transplants, scalpels, and invasive therapy by modifying the gum tissue surrounding the teeth.

In the not-so-distant past, gum infections usually meant severe long-term consequences. Treatment has since made long strides to improve the available options. Dentists now treat gum problems with a simple pinhole gum rejuvenation procedure.

The pinhole procedure involves inserting specialized equipment through a tiny “pinhole” formed just above the tooth. The tissue is then replaced over the teeth, and the gums are held in place with small collagen strips. Pinhole gum rejuvenation can be accomplished in one doctor’s visit with rapid results and minimal recuperation time.

The pinhole surgical approach is a minimally invasive procedure that does not necessitate any incisions or sutures. It is a rapid and convenient gum recession therapy that is almost painless and requires little recovery time. Patients can return to normal activities the day after surgery.

This holiday celebrates the contribution of this procedure to oral health and how it has transformed treatment. It also raises awareness of the diagnosis and treatment of other oral diseases.

National Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Month FAQs

How long does the renewal of pinhole gums last?

Depending on the number of teeth to be treated, the procedure takes about 20 minutes. It takes about an hour to an hour and a half to complete the entire set of teeth in the mouth.

How effective is pinhole gum surgery?

While any surgery carries some risk, the pinhole surgical technique has an extremely high success rate of over 90%. This is comparable to the success rate of traditional gum grafting.

Even though gum disease-related gum loss will not regrow, most patients can expect to see improvements after a deep cleaning. Because all of the harmful bacteria are eliminated, the gums’ health is restored.
