What Is The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique?

Do your teeth look longer? Are they sensitive? You could be suffering from gum recession.

Treating gum recession used to be done with a gum graft procedure. Even if your gum graft procedure was done by Dr. Roeder’s skillful hands, you’d still have to wait it out one to two months for the graft and donor site to heal completely. With the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, there’s no cutting and no graft, so you’ll be back to doing and eating the things you love in as little as two days.

This new procedure is virtually painless, and we’re very happy to be one of the few dental offices able to offer it to our patients. Dr. Roeder will make a very small hole in your gums and then, using special tools, he’ll be able to move your gums so they can better protect the health of your teeth.

Risks Related to Gum Recession

If you don’t have your gum recession treated:

  • Gum loss can lead to bone loss, which can lead to tooth loss.
  • Gum recession can leave the roots of your teeth and your gums defenseless against bacteria, which can lead to tooth decay and painful infections.
  • In addition to health risks, long teeth can make you insecure about the appearance of your smile.

Why risk your health? At Dream-Dentistry, your Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique consultation is free. It’s time to make the appointment: 215-804-4777.

Gum Recession Causes

If your parents struggled with gum recession, there’s a good chance you will, too, since it can be genetic. But your personal habits can also increase your risk of gum recession:

  • Aggressive brushing can wear down the enamel of your teeth prematurely and cause your gumline to recede.
  • If you’re not brushing and flossing regularly, gum disease could be the cause of your gum recession.
  • A symptom of sleep apnea can be teeth grinding, and the added stress on your teeth can cause gum recession. If you have obstructive sleep apnea, we can treat you for it.
