Repair receding gums, painlessly and conservatively, with the Chao® Pinhole Surgical Technique in Turlock, CA

As gums pull away from the teeth or recede, this process makes your teeth look overly prominent. Teeth can look “too long,” and out of proportion with the appearance of your gums. However, receding gums not only mar the appearance of your smile, they also damage the function and health of your teeth and supportive oral structures. Fortunately, Ramsin K. Davoud DDS Family & Cosmetic Dentistry offers a precision method to conservatively and painlessly repair gum recession: the Chao® Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST).

Repair Receding Gums Turlock CA

The technique, explained

Dr. Davoud is trained on many advanced treatments and technologies. These sophisticated options promote utmost patient satisfaction, comfort, exceptional outcomes, and healthy and prompt healing. Dr. John Chao developed PST as an alternative to traditional invasive surgical procedures that treat damaged and degraded gum tissue. These conventional treatments generally require the use of cutting tools, such as scalpels, and grafting. Soft tissue grafts may create two wounds; the treatment site as well as the site where the tissue is removed (such as the palate).

Instead of traditional cutting and wounding techniques, PST is a micro-surgery that treats the gums through a pin-sized hole. Through this very tiny hole, Dr. Davoud skillfully accesses, loosens, repositions, and slides the tissue over the exposed tooth. Gum recession can “expose” the tooth; notably, its sensitive roots. Exposed roots promote tooth decay and other conditions that threaten the integrity of the tooth.

The many benefits

Patients benefit from this conservative approach to common, conventional dentistry techniques. A few of these advantages are listed below:

  • No grafts
  • No suturing (stitches)
  • No incisions
  • Painless treatment
  • Painless healing
  • Fast results
  • Supports healing, tissue regeneration

PST is even appropriate for patients with dental fear and anxiety. After all, this technique eliminates the common sources of dental fear, including the sight and sensation of sutures and scalpels.

Gum recession can cause painful sensitivity, which interferes with your ability to eat and drink hot, cold, or sweet foods and beverages. You may find brushing and flossing difficult over and around painful, exposed roots. Root exposure also makes your teeth more vulnerable to decay. PST at our office stops the progression of this damaging process. It prevents further complications and restores the healthy attachments between your teeth and gums.
