Chao Pinhole® gum rejuvenation is an alternative to traditional gum grafting procedures. Using tiny holes created in the gum tissue, an Englewood, NJ dentist or periodontist is able to gently pull the gum tissue and reposition it. This results in a restored gumline that conceals and protects tooth roots.
Patients who under the Chao Pinhole® surgical technique can smile with renewed confidence. Their gumline looks totally natural, and they will no longer experience issues with tooth sensitivity or poor smile aesthetics. Let’s go over some of the basics with regard to candidacy for this technique.
Good candidates for Chao Pinhole® gum rejuvenation are people who suffer from mild gum recession. They should have otherwise healthy gum tissue.
Most candidates for Chao Pinhole® are people who would prefer to avoid traditional gum grafting surgery. This oral surgery can take time to recovery from, and is much more involved than the Chao Pinhole® technique.
After undergoing treatment for periodontal disease, the Chao Pinhole® technique can be performed to address minor gum recession if it occurs. This must be done after the infection has been brought under control, however, so keep that in mind if you are currently undergoing treatment for gingivitis or periodontitis.
Gum recession has many different causes. Some of these may include:
Chao Pinhole® rejuvenation can be used to help address gum recession caused by all of these common issues and many more.
During full mouth reconstructions and total smile makeovers, multiple dental procedures are combined in order to properly address a person’s dental health problems. If a patient suffers from mild gum recession, the Chao Pinhole® technique may be part of their combination of procedures.
Before beginning the Chao Pinhole® process, the overall condition of the patient’s gum tissue needs to be evaluated. Gums that have been seriously damaged by periodontal disease may not be treated with the Chao Pinhole® approach. Only healthy gum tissue can be manipulated.
When the gum tissue is seriously compromised, grafting will be necessary to replace and restore the damaged tissue and rebuild the gumline. This assessment can be done during your visit to the practice.
