If your gums have worn away or you have a receding gum line after gum disease, you may be at a higher risk of developing certain types of oral health problems. Receding gums can also take away from the beauty and esthetics of your smile. Some of the most common causes of gum recession include:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Genetics
  • Parafunctional habits
  • Teeth grinding (bruxism)
  • Overly-aggressive tooth brushing
  • Bite misalignment
  • Hormonal fluctuations
  • Poor oral hygiene

Benefits of the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique

The Pinhole Surgical Technique offers numerous benefits to the patient, including:

  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Fast healing and recovery time
  • Corrects receding gums without any incisions
  • No bleeding or inflammation of the gums
  • Immediate cosmetic results

How We Perform the Pinhole Surgical Technique

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a relatively simple procedure, and can be performed on multiple sites within the same visit. Our doctors use special tools to make a small opening in the gums and loosen the tissue so that it can be moved over the areas where the gums have receded. The gums heal in this new position, and you will see a difference immediately.

Dr. Eastman incorporates the latest techniques in reconstructive periodontics, tissue engineering, dental implants placement and was among the first group of dentists in the U.S. trained in computer guided implant surgery.
