Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 27, 2014
Washington, DC dentist Dr. Yasmin Majid now offers The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, a cutting-edge gum recession treatment alternative. Dr. Majid belongs to a select group of dental professionals in the country who have completed the training necessary to perform The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, a procedure created and patented by Los Angeles dentist Dr. John Chao.
Gum recession occurs when the tissue surrounding the teeth wears away, exposing more of the tooth or even the root of the tooth. Although mild gum recession can sometimes be resolved through tooth scaling and root planing (a deep cleaning process), moderate to advanced cases usually require gum grafts where a portion of tissue is cut from the palate and sutured to the receding areas. Prior to The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, also known as Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™, this invasive surgical procedure was the only option available to patients with receding gums. Due to the pain and recovery time, dentists can only treat one or two teeth in each session. As a result, this method often requires patients with advanced gum recession to return to the office several times in order to complete treatment.
Since The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ does not require incisions or sutures, patients can look forward to a much more comfortable experience with minimal pain, swelling, or bleeding. When performing Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™, Dr. Majid makes a tiny pinhole in the gums, then uses specially designed and patented tools to loosen the gum tissue and glide it over the receded areas of the tooth. The procedure typically only requires a single in-office visit, since the average duration ranges from 20 minutes to an hour, depending on the number of teeth being treated. Most patients see a noticeable cosmetic improvement immediately following the procedure.
