The duration of treatment can vary depending on the severity of your case and how many teeth have to be covered with the gum. It takes about 20 minutes to complete the pinhole procedure on every tooth. The time for recovery is only one or two days, which means that the whole procedure can be accomplished in one week.

There are quite a few benefits of pinhole gum surgery including:

  • Helps prevent tooth loss and requirement of expensive procedures like dentures or implants.
  • Stops the progression of gum recession and bone loss.
  • Minimal discomfort and swelling.
  • Heals much faster in most cases.

The costs can vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. Less severe cases can usually be treated in a single appointment and do not require dental sedation, whereas severe cases that affect all four quadrants of the mouth are more likely to require multiple appointments and require dental sedation.

Additionally, there is a higher possibility that you’ll need additional procedures in your dental treatment, like dental crowns, veneers, or dental bonding. This will add to the total price of your treatment.
