The benefits of Dr Chao’s Pinhole Surgical Technique™
During the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, a needle is used to make a small hole in your existing gum tissue.
Through this pinhole, special instruments are used to gently loosen the gum tissue. These tools help expand and slide the gumline to cover the exposed root structure.
The technique simply involves the adjustment of the existing tissue.
Gum recession refers to the loss of gum tissue along the gumline. This can occur as a result of periodontal disease (gingivitis, periodontitis, advanced periodontitis), the natural ageing process, or abrasive habits when it comes to brushing the teeth.
When gum recession occurs, the root structure of the tooth becomes exposed. This means that tooth decay and other problems can affect the teeth along the gumline and beneath it. Since healthy gums are essential for a healthy mouth, getting gum recession treated is important for lasting dental wellness.
Traditional gum recession treatments involve the use of donor tissue or soft tissue grafts in order to rebuild the gumline. This soft tissue would be sutured in place and would join with existing gum tissue as it healed.
Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ takes just a few minutes per tooth and most importantly, multiple teeth may be treated at the same time, allowing patients to have healthy, normal-looking gums with a minimum of inconvenience. After treatment, patients can resume their normal activities, including eating.
*Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is also known as Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ and Lunchtime Gum Lift™
