Dr. Steven C. Chang Brings The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ to Maryvale, AZ

Residents with gum recession in Maryvale who want to treat this condition but are concerned about painful surgeries can now look to Dr. Steven C. Chang of SC Dental Group and his use of a revolutionary new procedure called the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™). This process eliminates the need for incisions or sutures and offers an alternative to gum grafts as a means of reversing the effects of receding gums to deliver a bright new smile in less time and with minimal discomfort compared to any other method.

Receding gums commonly accompanies periodontal infection along with redness, swelling, bleeding, and tenderness in the gums. Advanced recession of the gums can increase the risk for tooth loss because of the lack of proper support for teeth. If this happens and implants are not used to replace the missing teeth, the associated jaw bone can eventually erode in a process known as resorption. As bone resorbs, the jaw becomes sunken in and a person’s speech may be hampered along with his or her ability to eat certain foods. Treating gum recession in Maryvale before it is too late is an important means of protecting overall oral health and functionality.

Grafting of gum tissue from one part of the mouth to the area with recession has historically been the way dental professionals have addressed the problem of receding gums. Dr. Chang now gives patients with gum recession in Maryvale a new option with PST™. In this method, he creates a small entry point, uses special instruments to loosen gum tissue in the areas of recession, and gently repositions the tissue over the exposed tooth. Because of the lack of incisions or sutures, swelling, pain, and bleeding after the procedure are minimal and the cosmetic benefits are immediately visible.

People who struggle with the look and effects of receding gums should contact Dr. Chang at SC Dental Group for a consultation to learn if PST™ can help them. Dr. Chang and his staff are committed to increasing patient comfort while offering effective treatments.
