At Comox Valley Dental Centre in Comox, dentist Dr. Derek Kim offers Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique to patients experiencing gum recession.
Gum recession may happen over time and can be caused by a number of different things including gum disease, rough brushing or even genetics. Treatment for receding gums often depends on the cause. Dr. Kim and your dental team may recommend the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique if you are experiencing gum recession. This procedure is an alternative treatment to traditional gum grafting.
During the procedure, Dr. Kim will use a specially designed instrument to guide the gums over the receded part of the tooth. There are no incisions and patients may notice an immediate change in the appearance of their gums. Consult with Dr. Kim prior to your appointment to learn of the expected results you may be able to achieve through this procedure.
