The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique
If you are suffering from receding gums, then the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique would be very beneficial for you. Receding gums are a very serious issue and if you notice that you are experiencing them it is highly important that you reach out to your local periodontist to set up a gum recession treatment appointment. Gum recession is one of the leading signs that you may be developing gum disease. With that being said when it comes to treating gum recession there is the more traditional gum grafting option versus the newer Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique.
What Is Traditional Gum Grafting?
Traditional gum grafting can be invasive for the dental patient because it involves taking healthy gum tissue from one part of the mouth and then using it to rebuild the gums by placing it in the parts of the mouth that are suffering from gum recession. A periodontist sutures the tissue onto the gums and then this newly placed healthy gum tissue will grow and heal on the placed area.

On the other hand, the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique does not require using grafts or any form of suturing. Instead, a small incision is made in the gum line that loosens the gum tissue and allows it to slide back over the parts of the teeth that are left exposed. The benefits of the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique include a faster recovery for the patient, no uncomfortable
suturing, also no scalpels or any other invasive surgical tools, as well as long lasting results.
