Understanding the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique vs. Gum Grafts

Gum recession is caused due to the gum disease. If left untreated, the infection destroys the gum tissue. Other causes are genetics and brushing tooth rigorously. With gum disease treatment the infection can be controlled. With the pinhole technique, gum recession can be corrected.

The main differences between the pinhole technique and gum grafting-

  • Discomfort:
  • In gum grafting, the tissue is taken from elsewhere in your mouth and grafted into the damaged area. In the pinhole technique, a tiny pinhole is made and gums are gently moved over the receded area.

  • Sutures:
  • No cutting is involved with the pinhole technique. There would be no scalpels or sutures involved which means less bleeding as well.

  • Treatment time:
  • The traditional surgical method can take one hour or more per tooth. The Pinhole method takes less than one hour for the whole mouth.

  • Recovery:
  • The recovery is fast with the pinhole technique and comfortable. Patients can eat normal food after the procedure.

  • Cosmetic benefits:
  • Both methods help in improving the appearance of your smile. Gum grafting takes weeks, the Chao technique gives results instantly.

Other Cosmetic Dental Procedures to Improve Your Gums

Apart from the pinhole technique, here are a few other cosmetic dental procedures that can boost your smile.

  • Gummy smile treatment:
  • The procedure is comfortable and performed with the use of a laser.

  • Veneers:
  • Dental veneers make teeth look longer and gums shorter.

  • Dental bonding:

A tooth is placed near your gum line to protect your tooth root from decay. Tooth decay at the root can result in gum recession.
If you want to correct gum recession without gum grafts, consider the Chao Pinhole® technique.
