Dr. Howard Hoffman’s Aventura, FL patients can now elect to undergo The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, an advanced procedure that treats gum recession and restores aesthetics without invasive cutting or suturing. This is a ground breaking procedure for the treatment of receding gums.

The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, also known as the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ was created and patented by Los Angeles dentist Dr. John Chao. Only a small number of dental professionals in the country are currently certified to perform this cutting-edge new procedure. Dr. Hoffman has undergone individual training with Dr. Chao and gives south Florida residents close proximity to this new treatment.

Residents experiencing gum recession might notice symptoms such as gum sensitivity to hot and cold and small dents in the gum line. Gum recession can occur as a result of aging, gum disease, overly vigorous tooth brushing, teeth grinding and orthodontics, just to name a few. It can affect people of all ages and can lead to increased gum sensitivity, loose teeth and tooth root exposure.

With The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, Dr. Hoffman works to slow down and reverse recession to help his patients restore their smile. He uses specially designed tools to make a small pinhole and guide loosened gum tissue over to the receded areas. Since the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ is minimally invasive, patients experience minimal bleeding, swelling, or pain. Moreover, The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ allows Dr. Hoffman to treat multiple teeth in a single visit and each tooth can be completed in just a few minutes. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ provides south Florida patients with a groundbreaking new alternative to traditional gum grafting surgery.
