Pinhole Surgical Technique in Michigan
If you have receding gums, there is now a revolutionary new treatment method available. Dr. Joseph Nemeth is a periodontist in Southfield, MI that offers the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ as a noninvasive treatment option for patients with receding gums. There is no second surgical site and it is the less invasive alternative to traditional receding gums surgery.
The “breakthrough” Pinhole Surgical Technique™ was invented and patented by Dr. John Chao and it is changing the way gum recession is treated. PST™ is an incision-free procedure where Dr. Nemeth creates a very small hole in your gums, then uses special instruments to loosen the gum tissue and move it over the areas where there is not enough tissue. He will then reinforce the tissue with collagen and often use platelet-rich fibrin to increase the rate of healing. Many patients are surprised at how easy the procedure is and see a visible change the very same day!

The Minimally Invasive Pinhole Surgical Technique™
What is gum recession?
Gum recession refers to the loss of tissue along the gum line. When gum recession occurs, the root structure of the tooth becomes exposed. This means that tooth decay and other problems can affect the teeth along the gum line and beneath it. Since healthy gums are essential for healthy teeth, getting gum recession treated is extremely important.
