Why Chao Pinhole® Gum Rejuvenation Is Different
It’s possible you considered fixing your receding gums with a gum graft in the past. You decided not to get it because of the discomfort, expense, and healing time involved. Now, though, there’s a better way to fix receding gums: Chao Pinhole® Surgery.
In the traditional gum graft surgery, tissue is cut away from a donor site, typically the roof of your mouth, then stitched in place where your gums have receded. But in Chao Pinhole® surgery, gum rejuvenation takes place all at the site where your gums have receded. Local gum tissue is repositioned to cover your exposed roots. It is then held in place not with stitches, but with a collagen glue. Collagen is a natural tissue that already makes up most of your gum tissue, and it helps your gums heal in place.
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique has many benefits:
- Less discomfort
- No need for a donor site
- Faster healing
- No scalpel
- As good or better results
Because of these benefits, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is growing rapidly in popularity both among dentists and patients as it spreads coast to coast.
