New Jersey Dentist Says New Treatment For Gum Recession Is Replacing Gum Grafting Surgery

Dr. Bruce Fine says that his patients are seeing excellent results in treatment of their gum recession with Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™. “There is no longer any reason to fear treatment for receding gums,” he says.

As the first dentist on the East Coast to be trained and certified to perform Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™, Dr. Bruce Fine says he is pleased to see how well his patients are doing with the minimally invasive treatment. “Patients are often reluctant to comply with a dentist’s recommendation to consider conventional gum grafting because they see the grafting procedure as a painful process that requires invasive surgery and extended healing time,” says Dr. Fine. “When I tell patients that their gum recession can be corrected in minutes without a scalpel or stitches they feel more comfortable about having necessary treatment.”

“Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ is performed to save teeth and improve root coverage,” says Dr. Fine. “The results are aesthetically pleasing as the gum line is restored and many patients report less sensitivity to cold temperatures. Now my patients with receding gums can benefit from what I believe to be the best alternative to conventional gum grafting.”

“With the Pinhole™ technique I lift and loosen the gums through one or two small entry points,” says Dr. Fine. “Special dental instruments are used to lift the gums over the receded areas of the tooth or teeth. Next, several small strips of collagen, similar to the material used for collagen injections are inserted through the pinholes which stabilize the gums. That completes the process, which usually takes just minutes per tooth treated.”

“Patients can return to normal activities almost immediately with little or no pain in the vast majority of cases,” says Dr. Fine. “That is a major benefit for my patients who have receding gums.”

"This illustration compares the appearance of a patient’s teeth and gums immediately after undergoing conventional gum grafting surgery and immediately after Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™. On the left, the conventional procedure requires numerous stitches in the gums. With the Pinhole™ technique just a small entry point is visible in the upper right gum. The entry point will heal and disappear virtually overnight in most cases,” says Dr. Fine.
