What Is The Pinhole Surgical Technique?
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a breakthrough procedure used to eliminate gum disease and the resulting gum recession. Gum recession may occur as a result of many factors, including periodontal disease, tobacco use, hormonal changes, genetic susceptibility, insufficient dental care, or overly aggressive tooth brushing. These factors can all cause the gum tissues to recede, exposing more of the tooth structure and tooth root. Receding gums can lead to gaps or “pockets” forming between the teeth and the gums, which make it easy for disease-causing bacteria to accumulate and affect the teeth and gums. Without proper treatment, gum recession can result in severe damage to the tissues and bone, and it may even lead to tooth loss. In order to prevent these severe consequences and to keep your smile healthy, one of our dentists may recommend the Pinhole Surgical Technique.
