Signs Of Receding Gums

You may notice that your teeth appear longer than they used to if you have gum recession. Many patients notice a darkened indentation of the tooth at the gum line. Sensitivity to hot and cold is another indication that your gums are receding and not providing the protection they should.

Pinhole Surgical Technique

Dr. John Chao invented the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™) as an alternative to gum grafting for gum recession treatment in Wayne, NJ. This technique gains access through a pinhole opening in the gums to repair the recessed area. Traditionally, gum recession treatment involves grafting tissue from another portion of your mouth to cover the area in deficit. Tissue grafting, while effective, is invasive and can take weeks to heal. Receding gums treatment in Wayne, NJ on the other hand, does not require cutting and suturing, so post-operative discomfort and healing time are greatly reduced.
