Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique in South Jordan, UT

Dr. Jerry F. Maymi & Associates are now proud to offer Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique in South Jordan, UT. This expert treatment is the treatment you’ve been looking for to help your receding gums so that you can improve your overall oral health. What Is Gum Recession? Some people experience the loss of gum tissue on their gumline, called gum recession. This can be caused by:
  • Aggressive tooth brushing
  • Crooked teeth
  • Frequent teeth grinding
  • Hormone changes
  • Insufficient dental care
  • Lip or tongue piercings
  • Misaligned bite
  • Tobacco products
Because gums are an important part of your dental health, you want to get treatment as soon as possible for receding gums. How Do I Get Treatment for My Receding Gums? Previously, all treatments for receding gums involved using tissue grafts to rebuild the gumline. However, this new technique allows for a more natural solution with less discomfort and invasiveness. The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique uses a needle to make a small hole in the gum tissue. From there, your dentist uses special tools to expand the root structure. The natural adjustment of the existing gum tissue is an effective receding gum treatment. What Are the Benefits? This special technique has multiple benefits for patients, including:
  • Natural-looking results that last
  • Fast recovery
  • Less discomfort
  • Prevention against tooth loss
This surgery doesn’t require donor tissue or surgical tools. This makes the surgery process much easier for patients. Treatment sessions can often be completed in as little as one to two hours, and the pinholes heal in 24 hours in most cases. How Do I Get Started? Dr. Jerry F. Maymi & Associates is pleased to be able to offer this special treatment for receding gums. You no longer need to worry about your gum health when you contact us to improve your oral health.
