Treat Gum Recession With  The Pinhole Surgical Technique™. Without Grafting.

Traditional Technique For Restoring Receding Gum Tissue

In the past, gum grafting or soft tissue grafting procedures were used to replace tissue lost due to gum recession. As these techniques were effective, their protocols are still used in specific cases today. Gum grafting utilizes tissue from an outside donor source or another area of the patient’s mouth to replenish the areas of the deficit with the sample tissue.

Effective Treatment With Advanced Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is minimally invasive and highly innovative. Patients can get treated for gum tissue revival and witness rapid cosmetic results. Dr. Akef has a lot of experience in performing this sophisticated procedure, which has produced superior results for our patients requiring gum recession treatment. The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is carried out without large sutures or incisions. A small, pinhole-size opening is created near the area of the recession. Dr. Akef, to give you an idea of how he performs the technique, uses this opening to return the receded gum tissue to an appropriate position on the tooth aided by patented and highly specialized instruments. Finally, in the process of reattachment, collagen strips are strategically applied to grip the tissue.

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique has the following patient benefits:

  • It’s Minimally Invasive: Just A Small, Pinhole-Sized Opening Is Needed To Repair An Area Of Recession.
  • An Improved Smile Right Away: The Patient Enjoys Cosmetic Benefits As Soon As The Treatment Is Over
  • Rapid Recovery Time: As Sutures & Incisions Are Not Needed, There Is Little Bleeding And Tissue Inflammation, And The Tissue Heals Quickly And Naturally. Usually, Post-Operative Discomfort Is Not Reported.
  • Minimum Dental Visits: In One Visit Multiple Recession Sites Can Be Repaired, And Patients Need Not Too Much Time In The Dental Chair.

Patients must note that before they begin gum recession treatment, they must work with the dentist to address the underlying reasons for gum recession. Periodontal disease is an example of a core cause, which needs to be controlled before proceeding for a future receding gums treatment.
