Individuals suffering from sensitive teeth in Fort Thomas, KY, as a direct result of receding gums, are now invited to receive the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique from Dr. Ryan Estes without a referral. The cutting-edge procedure is preferred by many gum recession patients because it causes minimal bleeding and pain. It can also be completed very quickly, and does not require stitches or lengthy recovery periods.

Dr. Estes encourages patients with sensitive teeth in Fort Thomas, KY or Florence, KY, to visit his two convenient practice locations and find out if receding gums are the source of their discomfort. Dr. Estes now accepts patients for the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, whether they have a referral or not. This highly-regarded treatment method causes minimal damage to healthy oral tissue and causes only minor discomfort to the patient. Dr. Estes performs the procedure by creating a tiny hole, approximately the size of a pinprick, in the gums above or below the receded area. Once the hole has been made, Dr. Estes pushes a small tool through it and carefully utilizes the tool to separate the gum tissue from the tooth’s surface. He then nudges the gum tissue downward until it covers the receded area.

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique takes very little time to perform, which means that Dr. Estes can effectively treat multiple areas of the mouth during one appointment. Standard gum grafting procedures, on the other hand, often require multiple appointments in order to treat more than one affected area of the mouth. The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is also preferred by many patients with gum recession because it does not involve gum grafting, which can be a painful process that requires healthy gum tissue to be transferred from one area of the mouth to another.

Patients with receding gums and sensitive teeth in Fort Thomas, KY, are invited to visit Dr. Estes’ practice to receive the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Patients are encouraged to schedule an appointment at their leisure, with or without a referral.
