Pinhole Certified Dentist
Dr. Roxanne Lowenguth D.D.S., M.S. is certified to perform the Pinhole®Surgical Technique in Rochester, NY
Pinhole® breakthrough treatment offers patients an easier, minimally invasive option to correct gum recession.
The Pinhole® Surgical Technique/ Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation® invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S., is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for treating gum recession.
This procedure is performed by making small holes with a needle in the gum tissue. Using specially designed instruments, the gum tissue is loosened and guided over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no incision or suturing, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding). Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
