Technique, we can get your smile back to a healthy state in a single appointment. You just need to call us today to set up your visit!

Why Gum Recession Is Serious

Gum recession can wreck a great smile, but it can also damage your teeth. Many people think it is okay to ignore gum recession, and they allow this controllable problem to become worse. Advanced gum recession will expose the roots of your teeth, making your teeth more susceptible to sensitivity or decay and more likely to fail.

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique Makes Treatment Hassle-Free

The Chao Pinhole Surgical® Technique is an alternative to conventional gum grafting. Pinhole® treatment is a revolution for the Lexington, KY area. Only doctors who have completed the Pinhole® Academy can perform this procedure, and Beaumont Family Dentistry has two doctors certified to provide this treatment.

The state-of-the-art procedure requires no sutures or scalpels. The pinhole technique is a simple approach developed by Dr. John Chao to help patients avoid painful treatments that carry significant recovery times.

Once you are completely comfortable and at ease in our chair, we will begin the procedure. Using extremely small incisions in your gums, we will insert a special tool under the gumline and gently work your gum tissue back to a healthy position. Once your treatment is complete, you should be able to return to normal activities within 24-48 hours.

Benefits of the Pinhole Technique

  • No scalpels or stitches needed
  • Less time in the dental chair
  • Less recovery time compared with traditional gum grafting
  • No need for donor tissue
  • Long-lasting, great-looking results
