The Dangers of Receding Gums

Receding gums can progress so slowly over time that many people are not aware they have gum recession until they start to experience all of the complications from having too much of their teeth and roots exposed. Receding gums can cause:

  • Painful sensitivity to hot and cold temperatures
  • Cavities at the gum line or on the roots of your teeth
  • An unsightly and uneven gum line
  • Tooth discoloration
  • Loose teeth
  • Periodontal disease

Treating Receding Gums the Traditional Way

Traditional gum recession treatment can be rather painful with incisions, bleeding, sutures, and a second surgical site required for grafting. Also, traditional gum surgery can actually lead to more recession due to healthy tissue having to be removed in order to destroy infected tissue, but not with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.

Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is the Minimally-Invasive Alternative to Traditional Gum Recession Surgery

Gum Recession Treatment

Dr. Louis Maro offers his patients a breakthrough gum recession treatment called the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. In this revolutionary procedure, Dr. Maro makes a small pinhole in your gums over the areas of recession. A small hand instrument is inserted to pull down or pull up excess gum tissue over the areas of low gingival volume. Dr. Maro places collagen strips to encourage healing and the procedure is done! There is no cutting, no stitches, and no second surgical site unlike traditional methods of gum recession treatment.
