Dr. James LoCascio is pleased to announce the expansion of his practice. Individuals who are suffering from the effects of receding gums in White Lake Charter Township, MI can now receive treatment without fear of the pain and trauma caused by gum grafts. The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive procedure that corrects the gum line and re-covers tooth roots, so they are no longer exposed to bacteria which causes gum disease and decay.

Age, aggressive tooth brushing, and tobacco use are just three of the common triggers of gum recession. However, the damage often occurs progressively, so an individual may not be aware of such oral concerns upon visual surface examination. Teeth are composed of dentin, and while the crown is protected by enamel, the gums cover the roots. Once the gums have deteriorated, stimuli such as hot, cold or sweet foods and drinks come in contact with the dentin, and a shock of pain occurs from the nerve of the tooth. People with receding gums in White Lake Charter Township, MI, may visit a dentist due to the occurrence of this pain, seeking available treatment options.

Unfortunately, traditional treatment for advanced recession involves gum grafts. Soft tissue is cut from other locations within the mouth and stitched over the exposed root. The invasive nature of the surgery and the extensive healing process make some dentists hesitant to recommend the procedure. Because Dr. LoCascio wants his patients in White Lake Charter Township, MI, with receding gums, to experience relief without traumatic oral surgery, he has received training and certification to perform a highly advanced procedure called the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Using specialized tools, he creates a tiny pinhole in the gums, loosens the tissue and guides them back to their original position. They are held in place by a strip of collagen, which stimulates new tissue growth and expedites the healing process.
