Suffering From Gum Recession?
Gingival recession is when the gums wear down or pull back from the tooth. The receding gums reveal more of the tooth, and in some cases, this leaves the root of the tooth exposed. This can lead to the tooth being overly sensitive and weaken the gum tissue surrounding the tooth.
The staff at Fort Bend Periodontics & Implantology are proud to offer a minimally invasive solution for gum recession, The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Unlike traditional grafting techniques, PST is scalpel and suture free, often resulting in immediate results. This is a permanent solution for receding gums and procedures often take less than two hours, with quick recovery times.
Fort Bend Perio Performs the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique in Sugar Land, Texas
Bleeding, red or swollen gums, bad breath, loose teeth and exposed roots are all signs of gum recession. Get your smile and your confidence back with the minimally invasive Pinhole Surgical Treatment from dr. Bret Dyer and his staff at Fort Bend Periodontics & Implantology.
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®), invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S., is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for treating gum recession. The unique features of the Pinhole Surgical Technique have been covered extensively by the media. Dr. Chao has appeared on NBC, ABC and over 240 local TV stations.
This procedure is performed by making a small hole with a needle in the gum tissue. Using specially designed instruments, the gum tissue is loosened and guided over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no incision or suturing, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding). Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
