Frisco, TX (PRWEB) March 07, 2014
Dr. Afshin Vahadi now offers a minimally invasive alternative for Frisco, TX dental patients in need of gum recession treatment. Unlike traditional gum grafting surgery, The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is an incision-free and suture-free procedure, so most patients experience little to no bleeding, swelling, or pain.
Gum recession is a common dental problem that occurs when the gum tissue surrounding the teeth erodes and exposes more of the tooth or the tooth’s root. Because it develops gradually, many people do not realize they have an issue until their receding gums become very conspicuous. Gum recession is one of the more obvious effects of gum disease; however, several other factors can contribute to gum recession, including aging, genetics, hormonal changes, and overly fervent brushing. Increased sensitivity is usually the first sign of gum recession; some people become aware of the problem when they notice that a tooth looks longer than normal. Left untreated, gum recession can cause severe damage to the supporting tissue and bone structures and eventually result in tooth loss.
Prior to The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, also known as Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™, invasive gum grafting surgery was the only option available for treating receding gums. With traditional gum grafting surgery, a section of gum tissue is cut from the patient’s palate and sutured to the receding areas. The level of pain varies depending on the type of graft received as well as the patient, but some recovery time is required by all due to the inherent invasiveness of the procedure.
The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, which was conceived and patented by Los Angeles dentist Dr. John Chao, employs specially designed tools to create a tiny pinhole and guide loose gum tissue over the receded part of the tooth. The procedure can typically be completed in one session and the majority of patients are pleasantly surprised with the instant cosmetic improvement to their smiles.
