Chao Pinhole Gum Restoration: A Minimally Invasive Treatment for Gum Recession

Your gums and other soft tissues in your mouth can be adversely affected by a wide variety of factors. Some you can control, while others occur naturally whether you are aware of them or not. Once your gums start to recede, your teeth begin to lose the support they need to stay firmly in place. If the situation is not corrected, it can increase your risk of periodontal diseaseand tooth loss.

If you are experiencing receding gums and are curious about the treatment options that are available to you, contact your dentist and ask about the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique.

What Causes Gums to Recede?

Your gums recede for many different reasons. Tobacco use, gum disease/infections, clenching your teeth, and the natural process of aging can all play a role in the overall health of your gums. As your gums continue to recede, more and more of your teeth are exposed. The small pockets and openings that begin to form create the perfect environment for bacteria and germs to collect and grow. Over time the gum disease can become so severe that you may eventually lose your teeth.

Chao Pinhole Technique

The Chao Pinhole Technique is minimally invasive and restores your gums much faster than the older procedures. There are no large incisions and the technique does not require sutures or stitches. The recovery time is relatively short and there is also a reduced risk of infection.

Is the Procedure for Me?

The Chao Pinhole Technique is not recommended for individuals who are in the advanced stages of gum disease. The new technique eliminates the need for gum grafting procedures. It is an ideal procedure for individuals who want to desperately avoid the extensive damage associated with more invasive procedures.

With proper dental care and regular visits to your dentist, you can keep your teeth and gums in the best possible condition. If gum recession does occur, the use of Chao Pinhole Technique will help you get your gums back to normal in a short period of time.
