About Gum Disease Treatment
The presence of gum recession affects not only the health of the gum tissues and teeth, but also the appearance of the smile. To restore gum tissue health, preserve the integrity of tooth root surfaces, and ensure a balanced smile line, gum recession treatment may be a necessary component of a comprehensive dental treatment plan.
Many individuals seek the expertise of Dr. Singh, who has performed an impressive number of successful procedures of advanced receding gums treatment in Oakbrook Terrace, IL patients via both traditional gum grafting and the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique(PST™).
Traditional Methods for Restoring Receding Gum Tissue
Traditionally, soft tissue grafting (or gum grafting) procedures have been used to replace tissue lost to gum recession. Due to their effectiveness, these protocols are still used in certain cases today. Gum grafting involves utilizing tissue from another area of the patient’s mouth or an outside donor source and replenishing areas of deficit with the tissue sample.
We offer the Pinhole Surgical Technique as a minimally invasive alternative to grafting.

Advanced Treatment With the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique
Highly innovative and minimally invasive, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique offers patients gum tissue rejuvenation and immediate cosmetic results. Dr. Singh has extensive experience in performing this advanced procedure, and has generated superior results for our patients in need of effective gum recession treatment. Performed without large incisions or sutures, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is carried out through a small, pinhole-sized opening created near the area of recession. Through this opening, Dr. Singh returns receded gum tissue to a healthier position on the tooth with the help of highly specialized, patented instruments. Collagen strips are then strategically applied to hold the tissue in place while going through the process of reattachment.
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique generates the following patient benefits:
The exposed root surfaces are more susceptible to tooth decay than enamel portions of the teeth. Also resulting from exposed roots is the incidence of sensitive teeth, as these surfaces contain small openings communicating directly with the nerve center of the tooth. Because the roots are not as dense as enamel, they are more likely to suffer damage from aggressive homecare and other habits.
