Get a Minimally Invasive Receding Gums Treatment

While a gum graft has been the usual method for repairing receding gums, an innovative procedure called the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique offers numerous advantages over a graft. Compared to a graft, it is:

  • Minimally invasive. A gum graft involves removing soft tissue from elsewhere in your mouth or using donor tissue. With the Pinhole® technique, our dentist uses only your existing gum tissue.
  • Quicker. It takes at least an hour to perform a gum graft involving only a few teeth. In the same amount of time, our dentists can treat your entire gumline.
  • More comfortable. No scalpel, sutures, or stitches are necessary for this gingival recession treatment. Our dentist makes a tiny pinhole in your gums, then gently manipulates your tissue to cover your tooth roots.
  • Easier to recover. Because there is no cutting or stitching, your recovery will be fast and painless.

Stay Relaxed With Sedation and Communication

Our dentists will expertly numb your mouth with local anesthesia. You can also get dental sedation – inhaled sedation, oral sedation, or IV sedation – to keep you relaxed throughout the procedure. We can schedule a longer appointment for you if you’re more comfortable taking the procedure at a slower pace. Your dentist will keep you informed of what is happening the entire time, so you know exactly what to expect.

If you’re interested in gum recession treatment, call North Oaks Dental at 248-712-1522.
