What is the best gum recession treatment?
The “Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation” technique is the latest gum recession treatment available. It is very invasive compared to the alternative method know as “gum grafting”.
The pinhole rejuvenation technique takes about one hour. You can do this during your lunch break or whenever you have spare time.
With the pinhole gum rejuvenation technique you don’t need a lot of recovery time.
Compared to gum grafts which involve cutting the gums, the pin hole technique uses tiny holes. No cuts at all. Inside these tiny holes a collage filler gets injected. Your gums then uses this collagen to repair themselves.
Will gum gum recession treatment hurt?
It’s very likely you won’t feel a thing. You will get a local anesthetic which will completely numb the area. At the very most you will feel some discomfort but no pain.
Compared to gum grafting the pinhole technique is much easier.
We have something called “the wand” and if you are a nervous patient you can ask for this. It’s a special way to numb your gums without use of an injection.
What gets injected into my gums? How do the injections work?
The gum rejuvenation works by injecting a special type of compound similar to collagen.
which was developed in Switzerland. The gums are filled and manipulated using tiny pinholes in the gums which close and heal very quickly after the procedure. You could go out to dinner the very same evening and be fine.
The alternative treatment for more complicated cases is “gum grafting” and this does require some minor surgery. We tend to stay away from this treatment for obvious reasons. The easier the treatment is for our patients the better.
