Pinhole® Gum Rejuvenation Portland, OR

A Minimally-Invasive Gum Disease Treatment with Instant Results!

If you have receding gums, you’re not alone! Over 50% of the U.S. population suffers from gum disease and receding gums. Traditional treatments for receding gums are generally painful and require multiple treatments before you’ll see any results. Today, however, there’s a more effective, minimally-invasive way to treat receding gums.

Pinhole® Gum Rejuvenation (PGR™), invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S., is an incision-free, suture-free procedure for treating gum recession. Dr. Kelly Blodgett was the first dentist in the entire Pacific Northwest area (and one of the first 20 dentists in the world!) licensed to perform PGR™.

Traditional gum surgery involves grafting soft tissue from somewhere else on your body and suturing it in place along your gumline. OUCH!! The procedure usually results in a long recovery and a very sore mouth. With Pinhole® Gum Rejuvenation, you no longer have to choose between living with the discomfort caused by gum recession and painful oral surgery.

“From day one, this practice has made me feel right at home. They treat me with kindness and compassion. This is HANDS DOWN the best dentist I have probably ever had in my life!”

The Advantages of LANAP® Laser Gum Disease Treatment

Pinhole® Gum Rejuvenation Traditional Surgical Treatments
Minimally Invasive? No incisions and no stitches. Specially designed instruments gently loosen gum tissue and guide it into place over the exposed root of your teeth. Scalpels and stitches required. Traditional therapy options are invasive and require grafting tissue from elsewhere on your body.
Instant Results? Minimal soreness and immediate cosmetic improvements. Most of our patients only take Advil after the procedure and feel fine the next day. You are able to eat most foods after the first 24 hours of healing. Long healing times and multiple treatments often needed. Scalpel-based gum recession treatments may require up to 6 weeks of recovery time. Your diet must be significantly modified.
Patient Satisfaction? Patients report no bleeding & love the results! The International Journal of Periodontics and Restorative Dentistry published a study proving the effectiveness of Pinhole® Gum Rejuvenation therapy. Oral surgery is painful and inconvenient. Many people avoid treating their receding gums simply because the treatment is so painful and invasive.

What Is Gum Recession?

Gum recession is the loss of gum tissue and supporting bone around your teeth. When the roots of your teeth are exposed, they become extremely sensitive to hot, cold, sweet, and acidic foods. In fact, living with tooth recession can lead to chronic tooth sensitivity and can make your teeth more prone to erosion and decay.

Receding gums can be caused by:

• Periodontal disease (gingivitis, periodontitis)
• The natural aging process
• Side effects of traditional orthodontic treatments
• Brushing your teeth too hard
• Misaligned bite
