Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST)

Pinhole Surgical Technique in Ottawa, Ontario

Do you have Root Sensitivity? Are your Teeth Getting Longer? Do you have Black Triangles Between Your Teeth?

Dr. Martin Lin is a Pinhole certified practitioner.  The Pinhole Surgical Technique is a novel, minimally invasive alternative to treating gum recession. Traditional gum graftings require cutting other sites to harvest grafts for the affected tooth. The Pinhole Surgical Technique starts by creating a pinhole in the gum tissues, without the use of scalpels.
