Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique®™ -- Beverly Hills, CA

Restore a Healthy, Beautiful Gum Line

Did you know gum disease affects at least 50% of adults in the United States? Despite being preventable, it is a common threat to your oral and general health. In fact, it’s a leading cause of tooth loss. Thankfully, it can be treated using personalized solutions, but it may leave behind a few complications, like a receding gum line. In the past, you would need an invasive procedure to cover the roots of your teeth. Now, gum recession treatment in Beverly Hills caters to your comfort without compromising the results. Our office embraces the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique®™ to restore a healthy, beautiful smile.

What is Gum Recession?

A receding gum line can occur for several reasons, such as aggressing brushing habits, but it most often results from periodontal disease. The infection destroys the supporting structures of your teeth, including the gingival tissue. If the gum tissue doesn’t sit high enough on your teeth, it can leave your roots exposed, increasing your risk of several concerns, like cavities and tooth sensitivity. Not to mention, it can make your smile look unattractive.

Traditional gum grafting is an invasive treatment that requires a scalpel and sutures. Although it’s effective, there are several disadvantages, like a painful recovery. The Pinhole Surgery Technique ™ offers the same exceptional benefits using a minimally invasive procedure.

What is the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique®™?

The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique®™ was developed by John Chao, D.D.S., who has been featured in the prestigious dental journal, the International Journal of Periodontics.

The procedure uses a small dental needle to create a tiny hole in the gum. Special dental instruments allow us to loosen the tissue and reposition it back into its original location. This effectively covers the roots of the teeth while restoring an attractive gum line without sutures.

It only takes a couple of minutes to treat each tooth, reducing the amount of time you spend in the dental chair. Often, multiple teeth are treated in one session while you also enjoy a shorter recovery. You can save time while restoring your smile when choosing the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique®™.

When compared to traditional gum grafting, which takes donor tissue and stitches it into place, the Pinhole Surgical Technique ™ offers several advantages such as:

  • Enhanced comfort.
  • Less invasive.
  • Shorter recovery time.
  • No need for a scalpel.
  • No need for sutures.
  • No grafting or donor tissue needed.
  • Natural-looking results.
  • Reduces risk of bleeding, swelling, and gum pain.
  • Completed in as little as 1 visit.
