There’s more to a healthy smile than clean, sparkling teeth. You may not have known it, but gum disease is the main cause of tooth loss for adults. As a certified Pinhole Surgical Technique Clinician, Dr. Douglas Snyder ensures your complete dental well-being by offering a variety of soft tissue treatments. If your gums need a little help, we offer the latest advancements in periodontal therapy, including Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation and Lunchtime Gum Lift.
Why Choose the Pinhole Surgical Technique?
Prior to this latest breakthrough in gum therapy, patients suffering from gum recession had to undergo painful, invasive gum-grafting, to treat their periodontitis. Thanks to the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique, created and patented by Dr. John Chao; and offered by our own Dr. Snyder, you can have a healthier smile without uncomfortable surgery. Our patients prefer
Pinhole Rejuvenation because it:
● Is minimally invasive
● Eliminates the side effects of invasive gum grafting (including bleeding, swelling and pain)
● Allows your whole mouth to be treated in as few as two visits
● Doesn’t require incisions or sutures
● Offers a healthier smile and instantly improves your appearance
● Requires little recovery, so you can get on with your day
● Heals quickly
● Provides immediate results
Your Pinhole Gum Therapy
Are you experiencing symptoms of gum disease, including gum recession, sensitivity and pain? If your oral health has been compromised and you’re suffering the cosmetic effects of “long” teeth, Dr. Snyder can help. Using a small pin-like tool, minute holes are created in your gum tissue that allow your gums to be gently guided into better placement, covering the exposed area of your tooth. Special collagen strips are then used to hold your repositioned gums in place. Your treatment is completed in the comfort of our Elkhart practice, and you’ll enjoy immediate results following your procedure.
