Gum or gingival recession is generally a consequence of periodontal diseases. The gum tissues recede and pull away, exposing more of teeth's surface and their roots. It makes the patient more susceptible to oral diseases like cavities, caries, and bacterial infections. In severe cases, periodontal pockets or gaps form between teeth and the surrounding gums. If left unchecked, the patient suffers from severe tooth loss.

Periodontics offers many treatments for gum recession but Chao pinhole gum treatment is considered the best. Unlike traditional methods, it is minimally invasive and does not employ scalpels or sutures to treat the patient. It uses advanced technology to perform tissue repositioning and can treat mild to moderate forms of gum recession. The Chao pinhole gum treatment is performed in the following steps:

  1. The treatment area is numbed using a local anesthetic.
  2. Small pinholes are created in the gums.
  3. Special dental tools are used to pass through the pinholes into the gum tissue.
  4. The dental tools are moved in an up-down motion to loosen the gum tissue.
  5. The gum tissue is then guided and repositioned over the areas of gum recession.
  6. Thin collagen strips are passes through the pinholes near the newly positioned gum. They promote healing and gum rejuvenation.
  7. The treated area is allowed to heal.
