Pinhole® Surgical Technique
We are proud to provide a revolutionary new treatment for receding gums. The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique also known as the Chao Gum Rejuvenation, requires no cutting or sutures and with little downtime.
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, is a new minimally invasive option for treating recession without discomfort and the recovery time required with the traditional procedure for gum grafting.
Dr. Reyes-Viruet is among the first group of Periodontists to be trained and certified in this new procedure. Gum recession can be caused by heavy handed toothbrushing, gum disease or the normal aging process. Receding gums can make anyone look older, cause tooth sensitivity and may lead to tooth loss.
The Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation®, invented and patented by Dr. John Chao, has been shown on a number of television news stories and covered in newspaper articles across the country. This new technique allows Dr. Reyes-Viruet the ability to treat multiple teeth in one visit restoring a healthy natural-looking gum line and smile with the minimum of inconvenience or pain.
