The Pinhole® Surgical Technique

Reverse Gum Recession. No Scalpel. No Stitches.

The Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®) is the latest in high-tech, minimally invasive gum recession treatments.

Mark S. Riederer, D.D.S.

Pinhole® Academy Certified Dentist

“Gum recession is fast becoming a dental health crisis and I want to make sure my patients are aware of the risks.

Genetics, the natural aging process, and other factors all contribute to gum disease and gum recession. When left untreated, bacterial growth, lost teeth, and many other negative health effects are possible.

For decades the only available gum recession treatment was painful surgery with inconsistent results. Fortunately, times have changed and there are new high-tech and minimally invasive treatment options.

I’m trained and certified to perform the PST® procedure, also known as Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™. It’s a great way to treat gum recession and take control of your health.”

Why Do Patients Choose the Pinhole® Surgical Technique?

  • No scalpel and no stitches
  • Visible results in 1 treatment
  • Quick to heal
  • Promotes healthy teeth and gum health
  • Improves your smile and self confidence
  • Long lasting results you’ll love

PST®: What to Expect

PST® is nothing like the invasive and painful gum recession treatments of the past. Unlike traditional gum recession surgery, PST® uses high-tech precision instruments to realign gum tissue over the exposed roots of your teeth without a scalpel or sutures. With PST®, you won’t need any tissue grafts, you’ll heal quickly, and you’ll see immediate cosmetic results. The procedure only takes 1-2 hours and most patients don’t need prescription pain medication to recover.

Gum disease and gum recession can’t be ignored.

Left untreated, gum recession can cause:

Tooth decay
Infection and abscess
Painful, swollen, and bleeding gums
Bone loss

Frequently Asked Questions About Gum Recession & PST®

What steps can I take to prevent gum recession?

The most common preventable causes of gum recession include:

  • Brushing your teeth too aggressively – Brushing gently with proper technique can help reduce your risk of gum disease and recession
  • Avoiding the dentist – Dental cleanings remove plaque and tartar that brushing and flossing at home can’t
  • Using tobacco products – Cigarettes, cigars, chewing tobacco, and other tobacco products increase your risk of gum recession and many other serious health problems
  • Tooth grinding – Most common while sleeping, grinding and clenching can lead to gum recession
  • Crooked teeth – A misaligned bite with crooked teeth can put pressure on your teeth and jawbone, leading to gum recession

In addition, genetics, hormonal fluctuations, and the natural aging process can also contribute to gum recession.

What are the warning signs of gum recession?

Be on the lookout for increasingly sensitive teeth or teeth that look unusually long. Both of these symptoms may indicate receding gums or gum disease.

Can all dentists do the PST® procedure?

No, only a Pinhole® Academy certified dentist like Mark S. Riederer, D.D.S. has the training, experience, and technology needed to perform the PST® procedure.
