Dr. Page Barden can help patients address their oral health-related New Year’s resolutions with The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, a new minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum grafting surgery.
Patients may experience gum recession for a number of reasons, including age, gum disease, or brushing too vigorously. In addition to increased sensitivity, receding gums can also detract from the aesthetic appeal of a person’s smile and the increased exposure often results in a “gummy” appearance that causes many patients to feel self-conscious. Prior to The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, invasive gum grafting surgery was patients’ only option for correcting this issue. With this type of procedure, dentists cut and remove a portion of gum tissue from the palate and use sutures to attach it to the receding areas.
Invented and patented by John Chao, DDS, the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ provides an incision-free alternative to traditional gum grafting surgery. Dr. Barden is among a select group of dental professionals in the country who has trained with Dr. Chao to perform the procedure, which uses specially designed instruments to move the gum tissue over the receded area of the patient’s tooth through a tiny pinhole made by a needle. Because the procedure does not require incisions or suturing, the treatment requires virtually no recovery period and most patients experience minimal post-operative symptoms like pain, swelling and bleeding.
Depending on the number of teeth being treated, the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ usually takes between 20 minutes and an hour. Most patients are pleased with the instant cosmetic improvement the procedure provides.
