Get an Incision-Free Treatment to Restore Receding Gums

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. It is:

  • Minimally Invasive – A gum graft involves removing soft tissue from elsewhere in your mouth or using donor tissue and stitching it in place. With the Pinhole® technique, your 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, Dr. Daboul can treat your entire gumline.
  • More Comfortable – No scalpel, sutures, or stitches are necessary for this gingival recession treatment. Your dentist makes a tiny pinhole in your gums, then gently manipulates your tissue to cover your tooth roots.
  • Easier to Recover From – Since there is no cutting or stitching, your recovery will be fast and painless. You won’t need to change your diet or oral hygiene.

We will expertly numb your mouth with local anesthesia. We can schedule a longer appointment for you if you’re more comfortable taking the procedure at a slower pace. You can also get dental sedation to keep you relaxed throughout your treatment.
