What is Gum Recession?
Gum recession occurs when the soft tissue pulls away from teeth. This is most common for those patients who suffer from gum disease, but it can occur due to facial trauma, infection, natural aging, and a number of other reasons. Traditionally, this condition would be treated through soft tissue grafting. This invasive procedure can be painful, take weeks or months of recovery time, and for those with gum disease, it increases risk for reinfection. For these reasons and many more, our team prefers to use the innovative Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique.
How does the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique Work?
Rather than surgically attaching additional soft tissue, the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique maximizes the coverage of existing gum tissue. We begin by numbing the area. Then we place a small hole in the gum tissue. Next, instruments are used to gently stretch and reshape the gum line, covering the exposed tooth structure and recreating the healthy shape and coverage lost due to soft tissue recession.
