Chao Pinhole Gum Grafting

Traditionally, gum recession has been treated with gum grafting. Today, we can provide you with a minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum grafting with Chao pinhole gum grafting. This technique involves the use of a pin-like tool to make an access hole in your gums about the size of the tip of a ballpoint pen. Specialized tools are then used to loosen your gum tissue and rearrange it to cover the affected teeth. Next, collagen strips are inserted into the gums through the access hole. These collagen strips help to stabilize your gums while you heal. There is no need for surgical wounds, blades, or stitches. The procedure is generally quicker, and healing is much faster.
