Can You Fix Receding Gums?
Yes, you may be a candidate for the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST) that allows us to lift your receding gums over teeth without using scalpels, grafting, or sutures. Compared to traditional gum surgery, PST is a minimally invasive way to reverse receding gums that doesn’t involve flapping open your gum.
The alternative to PST is gum graft surgery. There are four different kinds of this surgery: connective tissue graft, free gingival graft, pedicle (lateral) grafts, and allograft. Connective tissue graft is the most common. This is where they use tissue from the underlayer roof of your use and use it to cover the exposed root areas.

We then insert specially designed instruments in the hole to loosen your gums and then lift them overexposed tooth roots.
Our oral surgeon wants to help you achieve your best smile, which is why he offers gum recession treatment and other types of.
