CHINO HILLS, Calif. (PRWEB) November 27, 2018
Skilled periodontist, Dr. Jin Kim, performs the minimally invasive Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™) for patients with receding gums in Chino Hills, CA. He and his trusted team are raising awareness of how gum recession, if left untreated, can lead to tooth loss and is frequently a sign of gum disease. Dr. Kim invites anyone with elongated, sensitive teeth to schedule a gum recession consultation for treatment at one of two convenient office locations in Diamond Bar or Garden Grove, CA.
Gum grafting, the conventional gum recession treatment, frequently takes tissue from the palate or roof of a patient’s mouth and attaches it to the area of gum recession using sutures. Although effective, this technique creates two treatment sites and often leads to a long recovery.
Without the use of scalpels or sutures, the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique immediately restores the appearance and function of the gums by using only a small hole in the gum tissue. Using specialized tools, Dr. Kim is able to gently move the gums into a healthy position, reducing trauma to the periodontal tissue. Aesthetically framing the gumline to match each patient’s teeth and facial shape, this new position is held in place with collagen which will integrate naturally over time for a permanently restored smile.
Benefits of PST compared to conventional choices like gum grafting include reduced swelling, bleeding, and discomfort. Recovery time is also drastically reduced due to replacing multiple surgical wounds with a single pin-sized hole. Since numerous areas can be treated in just one appointment, Dr. Kim could restore your smile in a single visit.
