A gum graft is the traditional treatment to repair receding gums. At North Oaks Dental you also have the option of a Chao Pinhole procedure (please note that Dr. Daboul is the only doctor in our practice certified to perform this technique), a faster and less complicated treatment.

Unlike a gum graft, the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique® involves no cutting or stitches. It can usually be completed in about an hour, which is why it’s sometimes called a lunchtime gum lift. Without an incision, your recovery time is quicker too!

To find out if you’re a good candidate for a Chao Pinhole procedure, take our quiz. No matter what your results, our dentists are happy to provide more information and help you determine if it’s the right treatment for you.
