Pinhole Surgical Technique: Halting gingival recession in a single visit
from Dental Economics
As a periodontist, I see a lot of patients who have been aware of their gingival recession for several years, yet they have never followed through with treatment. Most patients with mucogingival defects have been referred to a periodontist at least once — and some may have even gone in for a consultation — but their fear of grafting prevented them from completing necessary treatment. Many patients have read or heard about others' horror stories involving horrifically painful experiences with soft-tissue grafting. These patients are so terrified that they would rather risk continued attachment loss — and potential tooth loss — than proceed with grafting.
