A 43-year-old female asked:

Should i have a general dentist do the pinhole surgical technique? i normally get gum grafts from a periodontist for my constantly receding gums.

Periodontist: I would recommend a periodontist for grafting procedures. A pinhole graft may be appropriate. However, it can't be used in every situation. Let a periodontist guide you in your specific needs.
