Posted on: November 16, 2017

Chao Pinhole Surgical TechniqueGums recede for a variety of reasons, ranging from aggressive brushing to the aging process, periodontal disease, grinding, clenching and beyond. Gum recession happens in a gradual manner, causing some patients to not even know it is occurring until they look in the mirror and see the results. Gum recession is an issue that can lead to the formation of pockets between the gums and teeth.

These spaces allow tartar and bacteria to accumulate. The end result can be advanced periodontal disease, the deterioration of tissue/bone and tooth loss. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique is here to treat gum recession and prevent these oral health problems from developing.

The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique Treats Receding Gums

This treatment method can be used to treat just about every patient who has gum recession but has an otherwise healthy mouth. Those who have extreme cases of gum recession or disease might not qualify for the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique. We typically use this technique after applying laser treatments to treat gum disease.

There is no use of any sort of scalpel or sutures during this procedure. This procedure uses healthy tissue from the gums. We reposition the tissue with instruments through small openings along the gums.

There is no worry over sutures, deep incisions and other aspects of traditional gum treatment when the patient can choose PST. This technique is a safe and efficient means of treating receding gums on today’s market.

A Quick Recovery

The PST recovery time is shockingly quick. The patient can resume typical activities the exact same day as the procedure.

Use a prescription mouthwash, try to eat soft foods in the days following the procedure and the patient will be back on track to normalcy sooner than anticipated.

It is important for the patient to attend those follow-up visits with the dentist to ensure everything is healing properly and no additional treatment is necessary. In the end, the gums will look like the patient wants them to and the patient will feel that much younger.
