New Procedure to Correct Receding Gums

Until recently, there have been two methods to correct receding gums – covering the exposed tooth roots with porcelain veneers, and gum tissues grafting. I personally had experience with the root covering, which fell off twice. I’m not a fan of the gum tissue grafts, as the tissue used when you need many teeth grafted would need to come from “another source.” No thank you.

I figured, wait long enough and someone will have a light bulb idea, which has happened. A dentist has developed a simple technique called the “Pinhole technique”.

Pinhole Technique Before and After

  1. Purchase virgin, organic coconut or sesame oil.

  2. Perform first thing in the morning, before you put food or liquid into your mouth.
  3. Place 1 teaspoon of oil into your mouth, swish around and “pull” through your teeth.
  4. Do this for 10 – 20 minutes.
  5. DO NOT SWALLOW the OIL, as it is said to be full of toxins drawn out of your tissues which could make you sick if swallowed.
  6. Spit out the oil within the time frame given when the oil is thin and white.
  7. Rinse with salt water or warm water.
  8. Repeat  anywhere from once a day / several times a week, to twice a day / every day.
