Gum Recession Treatment Returns Health And Vitality To Smiles

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™).

The Pinhole Surgical Technique™ Treats Gum Recession. Without Grafting.

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.

Minimally Invasive

We offer PST as a minimally invasive alternative to grafting.

Fast Recovery Time

With PST you can be back at work the same day!

Fewer Dental Visits

With PST you can have your entire mouth treated in a single visit.

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:

  • Minimally Invasive: Only a small, pinhole-sized opening is required to treat an area of recession.
  • Immediate Smile Improvement: The cosmetic benefits are enjoyed by the patient as soon as the treatment is complete.
  • Fast Recovery Time: Since incisions and sutures are not required, very little bleeding and tissue inflammation occur, allowing tissue to heal naturally and quickly. Post-operative discomfort is generally not a concern.
  • Fewer Dental Visits: Multiple recession sites can be treated within one visit, saving patients time spent in the dental chair.

It is important to note that any underlying causes of gum recession must be treated or addressed prior to receiving gum recession treatment. Periodontal disease is once such factor that needs to be controlled in order for any future receding gums treatment to be successful.
