Chao Pinhole Technique for Receding Gums

Chao Pinhole Technique Lubbock, TX

The Chao Pinhole Technique® is an innovative alternative treatment for gum recession. The procedure offers unique benefits that a traditional gum grafting procedure cannot provide, such as reduced discomfort, faster recovery times, and no use of invasive surgical tools or sutures.

What is the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique?

The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique is a patented treatment for receding gums caused by periodontitis. It is a less-invasive method of receding gums treatment that does not involve the use of sutures or invasive surgical tools. Due to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure, the risks are much less than those associated with a traditional gum graft procedure. It also does not take long to recover after the procedure.

What are the benefits of the Chao Pinhole Technique for receding gums?

The most notable benefits of the Chao Pinhole Technique for receding gums include a more comfortable experience, faster recovery, and fewer risks overall. There is also no need for the uncomfortable sutures used with traditional gum recession treatment procedures. The results should look natural and last for a long time.

Comparable results to a traditional gum graft

The results of the Chao Pinhole Technique are comparable to that of a traditional gum graft procedure. Both procedures are effective at restoring the gum line after gum recession takes place and leaves the roots of the teeth more exposed. The difference, however, is in how the results are achieved.

Less discomfort

There are no grafts, sutures, or incisions involved with the Chao Pinhole Technique, unlike traditional gum grafting, which requires all three. Subsequently, there is less discomfort during the Chao Pinhole Technique procedure. Additionally, since there are no invasive surgical tools or methods used, the process is relatively safer with fewer risks. This technique, compared to traditional gum grafting, is recommended for patients who may have a fear of invasive dental instruments or simply desire the most comfortable procedure possible.

Faster recovery

Since there are no sutures or invasive processes involved with the Chao Pinhole Technique, patients can recover quickly after the procedure. In fact, many patients are able to resume normal eating on the same day as the procedure. That said, it may be best to eat soft foods and drink water for the first day, to avoid any irritation.

No discomforting sutures

For many patients, sutures are the worst part of a traditional gum graft procedure. The good news is that the Chao Pinhole Technique offers an effective alternative to the traditional procedure and does not involve any sutures. It also has a faster recovery process.

No use of invasive surgical tools

Scalpels and other invasive surgical tools are not used during the Chao Pinhole Technique. The only surgical tool used is a small, pinhole-sized instrument that is used to help pull the gum line down to an appropriate level that adequately protects the gums and reduces the risk of the loss of teeth or oral infection.

No need for donor gum tissue from the patient’s palate

The traditional gum graft technique involves taking gum tissue from the patient’s palate (or donor tissue) and suturing it over the existing gum line. This adds to the invasiveness of the procedure and increases the risk of complications. Also, some patients are uncomfortable with donor gum tissue. However, the Chao Pinhole Technique only extends the gums where the gum line ends, and there is no need to take gum tissue from another part of the mouth or from a donor.

Natural and long-lasting results

The results of the Chao Pinhole Technique should last for decades, if not the patient’s entire life. Additionally, the patient can show off their smile with healthy gums that extend far enough over the teeth to appear as natural as possible.

When should I consider the Chao Pinhole Technique?

The Chao Pinhole Technique is ideal for any patient with gum recession who wants the least-invasive treatment possible for restoring their gum line safely. The best way to determine if the Chao Pinhole Technique or traditional gum grafting is right for you is to consult with a licensed dentist who offers gum recession treatments.
