Dr. Yasmin Majid says that before Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ patients who were told by their dentists that they needed gum grafting surgery were reluctant to comply. “Many patients perceive traditional gum grafting to be an invasive and painful procedure,” says Dr. Majid. “Because of this impression, patients tended to delay or decline treatment altogether, placing their teeth at risk. Now we can offer a quick, minimally invasive treatment for receding gums that is done through tiny pinholes made in the gums which virtually disappear overnight. The technique takes just a few minutes per tooth and patients feel much more comfortable about accepting needed treatment.”
Dr. Majid is among a few hundred dentists worldwide who are certified to provide Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™, which was invented and patented by Los Angeles dentist John Chao. She is the first dentist in the DC area to be trained personally by Dr. Chao.
“Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ is a seemingly simple yet sophisticated technique to guide receding gums to a healthy position,” says Dr. Majid. Rather than taking the conventional approach of cutting tissue from the roof of the mouth and transferring it to the areas with recession, Dr. Chao theorized that the gums could be brought down to achieve root coverage by using minimally invasive techniques. After years of development and refinement of the technique and special dental instruments which he designed, Dr. Chao submitted his study to the International Journal Of Periodontics & Restorative Dentistry, which published a peer reviewed study on the “Pinhole Surgical Technique™” in 2012. The study concluded that the minimally invasive technique achieved results comparable to those of traditional gum grafting.
