If your gums are receding, due to gum disease or other factors, you may anticipate having a gum graft to repair the damage. There is another option, though, a Chao Pinhole procedure. This technique involves manipulating the gum tissue with special instruments. It requires neither incisions nor stitches.
The treatment is quicker and more comfortable than a gum graft, and the recovery time is shorter too. In addition, there are no concerns about your repaired gums not looking natural, since our dentists won’t transplant any tissue from elsewhere in your mouth.
To see if you’re a candidate for a Chao Pinhole procedure, take our quiz. Then call us at 605-277-9049 to request an appointment in Aberdeen, SD to discuss your gum treatment. You can also schedule online.
