A Scalpel-Free, Suture-Free, Graft-Free Treatment Option for Receding Gums.
A quick, easy and instantly pleasing procedure that can be life changing here in Baton Rouge!
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, also known as the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™, was invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S. It is a scalpel-free, suture-free, graft-free, minimally invasive procedure for correcting gum recession and saving teeth. Through a small hole made by a needle, specially designed instruments are used to gently loosen the gum tissue and glide it over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no cutting or stitching, patients can expect minimal postoperative symptoms(pain, swelling and bleeding). Patients are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement. Most patients are able to resume light normal activities within 24-48 hours after treatment. (excluding working out and strenuous activities)

Gum recession is the process in which the margin of the gum tissue that protects the teeth wears away, or pulls back, exposing more of the tooth root. When gum recession occurs , “pockets” or gaps form the teeth and gum line, therefore, making it easy for disease causing bacteria to build up and destroy teeth. If left untreated, the supporting tissue and bone structures of the teeth can be severely damaged and may ultimately result in tooth loss and even severe health consequences. Gum recession is a common dental problem and most people do not know that they have gum recession because it occurs gradually. Do not ignore gum recession! Early detection and treatment is essential to maintaining overall health and saving teeth. If you think that your gums are receding, make an appointment immediately with a certified Pinhole® Surgical Technique dentist for an evaluation of your individual case.
