Treating Gum Recession

Treating Gum Recession

Most gum recession requires surgical gum grafting.

There are several different types of grafting techniques that we use. Which one we use depends upon our evaluation at the first consult. We are most likely to use the Pin Hole Technique™ since it produces the most favorable results with the smallest opening (Pin Hole) and the least trauma to you, the patient. You can learn if the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique will work for you by visiting our pinhole surgery information page.

Soft tissue grafting is an in-office procedure requiring only local numbing (IV sedation can be used if desired).

No discomfort is evident once the anesthetic takes effect.
