Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 12, 2014
Dr. J. Robert Friedberg recently began offering the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, a new minimally invasive treatment for gum recession. Unlike traditional gum grafting surgery, the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™, also known as Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™, does not require incisions or stitches, so patients typically experience minimal pain, bleeding, or swelling.
Gum recession occurs when surrounding gum tissue that surrounds teeth erodes, exposing more of the teeth’s surfaces or root. Since it develops slowly over time, many people do not realize they have a problem until the recession becomes very noticeable. Gum disease is the most common cause of gum recession, but several factors can lead to receding gums, including genetics, hormonal changes, aging, or overly zealous brushing.
Prior to Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™, invasive gum grafting surgery was typically the primary treatment option for receding gums. With traditional gum grafts, a section of gum tissue is removed from the patient’s palate and sutured to the receding areas. Due to the invasiveness of the procedure, some recovery time is usually required and most patients have some degree of pain, bleeding, and swelling.
Conceived and patented by Los Angeles dentist Dr. John Chao, the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ employs specially designed tools to create a tiny pinhole in the gums. Using these tools, Dr. Friedberg then guides the loose gum tissue over the receded areas. Dr. Friedberg can usually complete the procedure in a single session and the majority of patients notice an instant cosmetic improvement in their smiles.
