Receding gums corrected with Pinhole Surgery


Patients gums were receding causing unwanted sensitivity, complaining that her “…teeth look like horse teeth, they’re getting so long.”


90 minutes’ worth of pinhole surgery treatment, with the patient staying for a week in Sydney as close follow up was necessary.


This patient had receding gums that affected her teeth’s sensitivity to cold and hot foods and beverages. Due to the receding gums her teeth also gave the look that they were growing in length when in fact they were stationary, in the patients’ words “my teeth look like horse teeth, they’re getting so long”.

A 90 minute pinhole surgery was initially performed to correct the receding gums. The patient then stayed in Sydney for a week with subsequent follow ups with no visible bruising, inflammation, and without any pain. 6 months later and the gums still had no occurrences of any bruising, inflammation or pain, the patient was stoked with the results.

Ew or you?
This ladies and gentlemen is what we professionals like to call PERIODONTAL DISEASE! And if you have it, then it’s time to get a move on because you might be able to ignore the disease, but the disease won’t ignore your teeth 🦷
Your ignorance will only affect YOU!
