Gum recession is a common dental problem that affects millions of people worldwide. It occurs when the gum tissue surrounding the teeth pulls back, exposing the roots of the teeth. This not only makes the teeth appear longer, but it can also cause tooth sensitivity and increase the risk of tooth decay.
If you’re experiencing gum recession, you may be wondering what your options are for treatment. One innovative and minimally invasive treatment option is the Chao Pinhole Technique, which is performed by a periodontist.
What is the Chao Pinhole Technique?
The Chao Pinhole Technique is a minimally invasive, scalpel-free method of treating gum recession. Unlike traditional gum grafting surgery, which involves cutting and suturing gum tissue from other areas of the mouth onto the recession area, the Chao Pinhole Technique involves making a small pinhole in the gum tissue above the affected area.
Through this pinhole, Dr. Poventud or Dr.Ramirez use a special instrument to gently loosen the gum tissue and slide it back over the exposed tooth roots, covering the recession area. The pinhole is then closed with a small collagen strip that helps to stabilize the gum tissue in its new position.
Why Choose a Periodontist for Chao Pinhole Technique?
While the Chao Pinhole Technique is a relatively simple procedure, it’s important to choose a qualified and experienced periodontist like Dr. Poventud and Dr. Ramirez to perform the treatment.
Periodontists have a deep understanding of the anatomy and function of the gums, and they have experience using a variety of techniques and tools to treat gum recession. They can also provide personalized advice and guidance on how to care for your gums after the procedure, ensuring that you achieve the best possible results.
In addition to performing the Chao Pinhole Technique, periodontists can also offer a range of other treatments for gum recession and other gum-related problems, such as periodontal surgery, LANAP, Periodontal maintenance and dental implants. They can work closely with your general dentist to provide comprehensive care for your oral health.
