Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Florham Park, NJ

Exciting New Treatment For Receding Gums

Dr. Raj Upadya is proud to be one of the first dentists in New Jersey to offer an innovative, minimally invasive treatment to repair receding gums. This new procedure, known as Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation or Lunchtime Gumlift™, was developed by Dr. John Chao of Alhambra, CA. What makes the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ so revolutionary is that it treats gum recession without incisions or sutures.

About Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation aka the “Lunchtime Gumlift”

What is Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation?
Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation is a patented, minimally invasive, microsurgical procedure for treating receding gums and a wonderful alternative to traditional gum grafting.

How Does the Lunchtime Gumlift™ Work?

The animation above shows the difference between traditional gum grafting procedures and the new Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique. Traditional gum grafting surgery requires tissue to be removed from the roof of the mouth and grafted onto the gums. The process for the “Lunchtime Gumlift” is quite different. Los Angeles dentist Dr. Chao developed a special technique and instrument that only requires a “pinhole” incision to enter the gums and massage the tissue over the receded part of the tooth.

Dr. Upadya Training and Experience

Florham Park dentist Dr. Raj Upadya is committed to staying on the leading edge of dentistry. Preventive dentistry is always the ideal, but when problems or gum disease is present, Dr. Upadya looks to find the most conservative treatments that will yield results with the highest health and aesthetic benefits.

Dr. Upadya is a member of an inaugural group of dentists to undergo training with Dr. John Chao and was certified to offer the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation technique in January 2014. There are only 150 dentists worldwide with this certification, making Dr. Updaya one of just a few dentists on the East Coast experienced in this gum recession treatment. Combined with his experience in cosmetic dentistry and restorative dentistry, Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation allows Dr. Upadya to offer patients more conservative treatments for complex dental concerns.
