You don’t have to live with gum recession. Find out how Precision Periodontics can help with the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique.
It can be upsetting to learn that you have receding gums. You wonder what you could have done to avoid it and what you will need to do to correct the issue.
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a scalpel-free and suture-free procedure used to correct gum recession. Gum recession may occur as a result of periodontal disease, tobacco use, hormonal changes, genetic susceptibility, insufficient dental care or overly aggressive tooth brushing. These factors cause gum tissues to recede, exposing more of the tooth structure and tooth root.
Receding gums can lead to gaps forming between the teeth and the gums, which makes it easy for disease-causing bacteria to accumulate. Without proper treatment, gum recession can result in severe damage to the tissues and bone, and it may even lead to tooth loss. The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique can prevent these serious consequences and keep your smile healthy.
In this treatment, a periodontist will create a small hole in the gums before using specially designed instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue and slide it back over the area of the tooth where the gums have receded. Since this treatment doesn’t require any scalpels or stitching, it involves minimal discomfort during and after the procedure. The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique also provides an immediate cosmetic improvement.
Ask an experienced periodontist if the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is right for you.
