When choosing to undergo the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, it is a relief to know that the process is completed without the use of scalpels or sutures. Dr. Thomas will use a specialized tool to make a small incision — approximately the size of a pinhole — and the surrounding tissue will be carefully repositioned with specific surgical tools.
Unlike traditional surgical methods, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique has many advantages, including minor operative incisions and a quick recovery time. Because this procedure does not require an invasive operative process, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique allows for minimal, if any, bleeding, swelling and discomfort. With any gum recession treatment, you must allow for proper healing, but with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, your recovery time will be increasingly shorter, and the cosmetic benefits are immediate. Dr. Thomas can also treat numerous teeth at once, so there may not be a need for multiple visits.
If you are concerned about receding gums, or are interested in the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, please call our office at (281) 240-2400 today to reserve your appointment with Dr. Siny Thomas!
