Treatment for Gum Recession in Warner Robins, Georgia
Fast, Lasting and Minimally Invasive Treatment for Gum Recession with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique
Gum recession can age your smile, making you look older than you really are. It can also cause sensitivity to cold or spicy foods, and it leaves the roots of your teeth exposed and more susceptible to decay.
Our doctors use the minimally invasive Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique to treat gum recession quickly and with minimized discomfort for you. The Pinhole Technique is a scalpel-free and suture-free procedure that produces immediate results that last a long time.
How the Pinhole Technique Works
The Pinhole Technique does not involve tissue grafting, scalpels or stitches. The doctor makes a tiny hole in your gum tissue and uses a special micro instrument to gently loosen and reposition your own gum tissue to cover the exposed tooth root. He then places strips of collagen and donor tissue under the gums to thicken the gums and solidify them in place. With this technique, the doctors are able to treat multiple recessions at one time, allowing the whole procedure to be completed in just one visit. You will see immediate improvement and experience very minimal posttreatment discomfort.
Benefits of Treatment
Drs. Bhasin and Eyman are gum treatment specialists and take great care to ensure that the results of the treatment are very aesthetic and look natural.
In addition to getting a more appealing and attractive smile, having gums that properly cover the roots of your teeth is beneficial healthwise. The roots of teeth are softer and more sensitive to damage and decay than the harder, more durable tooth enamel. Proper root coverage protects the roots and also provides needed structural support for your teeth.
