Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique – Aurora, IL

Covering Exposed Roots, Reversing Gum Recession

Gum disease can manifest through many different symptoms, one of the most common being gum recession. As teeth pull away from the gums, the roots become exposed, leading to a greater risk of infection, damage, and sensitivity. Using a unique form of gum disease therapy in Aurora known as Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, our team can eliminate the need for complex and drastic treatment that requires prolonged recovery and instead, gently reposition the gums for a healthier smile. Contact us to schedule an appointment with our periodontist.

Why Choose Grand Dental – Aurora for Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique?

How Does the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique Work?

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique does not rely on scalpels and sutures to bring the gum tissue back together. It is minimally invasive and treats gum recession.

Using a small needle or “pinhole,” a dentist in Aurora moves it through the gum tissue, which is stretched just enough to loosen the tissue. Our periodontist then brings the area downward to cover more of the exposed tooth root.

There are no sutures required, which makes recovery much easier.

Uses of the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique

Gum recession in Aurora

The primary reason for any periodontist to recommend Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is to treat a patient’s gum recession.

This pulling back of the gum tissue to exposed teeth roots commonly occurs as a result of aggressive tooth brushing, smoking, poor oral hygiene, gum disease, teeth grinding, genetics, and hormonal changes.

With Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, we can easily treat multiple areas of gum recession in just one appointment. This is vastly different than with traditional gum grafting which can often take multiple visits to achieve desired results.
