Patients with receding gums in Meriden, CT, are now welcome to visit Dr. Randy J. Greenberg’s office and receive the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Unlike traditional gum graft procedures, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique treats gum recession without slicing into the gums or extracting replacement tissue unnecessarily. Patients that receive the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, experience less bleeding and fewer instances of post-operative complications, due to the minimally-invasive way in which the procedure is performed.

Dr. Greenberg is proud to offer patients an alternative to painful gum graft techniques by providing an alternative option with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Individuals with receding gums in Meriden, CT, can now receive treatment without worrying about long recovery times, excessive bleeding, uncomfortable stitches or other factors associated with traditional gum recession treatment methods. Gum recession is one of the most common side effects of gingivitis and affects a large portion of the world’s population. In some cases, recession may be barely noticeable, but if the underlying condition is left untreated, the gums can continue to recede to the point of pain and embarrassment.

While traditional methods treat gum recession by taking tissue from another part of the mouth and fastening it to the receding area with multiple stitches, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique takes a more simplistic and minimally-invasive approach. Dr. Greenberg performs the procedure by creating a tiny hole (about the size of a pinpoint), in the gums above the receded area (or below, if he is working on the lower jaw). He then gently prods tools through the hole and uses them to pull the gums carefully away from the teeth, sliding them down or up over the tooth’s surface, in order to minimize the appearance of recession. The process can be completed in a matter of minutes and immediately improves the appearance of the smile, without the use of scalpels or sutures.

Patients with receding gums in Meriden, CT, are invited to experience a minimally-invasive gum graft alternative, by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Greenberg to receive the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.
