Gingival recession – sometimes referred to as receding gums – is a common issue faced by a growing number of individuals. Essentially, a gradual loss of gum tissue or an alteration of the gingival margin can result in the roots of the teeth being exposed, which can be painful and unsightly. One of the most technologically advanced procedures utilized to reverse gingival recession is called the Pinhole Surgical Technique – a procedure which requires extensive certification. Dr. Gregg Weinstein is one of the very few dental professionals in Florida to be certified in this procedure, which adds a significant service to individuals facing this chronic issue.
So what is gum recession? Basically, gum recession refers to the deterioration of gum tissue along the line of an individual’s gums. The causes of gum recession can be diverse, and can include genetics, improper or inconsistent oral hygiene habits, aging, or a wide range of periodontal diseases such as gingivitis. Gum recession should not be ignored because it could lead to more serious issues if it goes untreated, such as tooth decay and exposed roots. Effective levels of oral hygiene can do wonders in ensuring healthy gums.
What is the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST)?
This groundbreaking procedure represents the most cutting edge process in dealing with gum recession. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique offers the most effective results while avoiding incisions and sutures, ensuring a minimally invasive process which leads to a better overall patient experience. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique was created by Dr. John Chao, who personally trained Dr. Weinstein.
This technique is significantly different than traditional grafting because it involves a far less intrusive process. Typical gum recession treatments utilize tissue grafts and/or donor tissue, which are used to fortify and stabilize the gumline. This procedure is far more involved and time consuming, and is generally unpleasant for the typical patient. The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique accomplishes comparable results while offering a much more pleasant overall experience – truly a “win-win”.
What is the process involved?
During the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique, a small needle is utilized to make a hole in an individual’s gums. A variety of instruments and strategies are then used to gently guide the gum tissue to correct the misalignments. This procedure requires no incisions, gum grafts, or any other invasive techniques – it involves only the gentle and gradual realignment of the gum tissue to correct the issue and to provide beautiful and long-lasting results for the patient.
