Innovative and Breakthrough Technology
Dr. Uzma Ansari is the only dentist in the Northern Virginia area who is a licensedPinhole® Surgical Technique clinician. This technique is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for treating gum recession.
This procedure is performed by making a small hole with a needle in the gum tissue. Using specially designed instruments, the gum tissue is loosened and guided over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no incision or suturing, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling, and bleeding). Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
