If teeth look longer than they should, this may be an indication that the gums are shrinking or receding. This can be caused by conditions including periodontal disease, grinding of the teeth or aggressive brushing. Dr. Sam Latif offers Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique in Columbus, OH to help his patients overcome any health and aesthetic concerns about gum recession.
Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique in Columbus, Ohio is on the cutting edge of treatments for gum recession. It is a breakthrough treatment that causes very little pain and has a quick recovery time for the patient.
Other techniques that may be used instead of Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique in Columbus include 'gum grafting' this is a very invasive technique that is used to cover the roots of the teeth. A section of gum is usually taken from the roof of the mouth and the gum is restored to its natural position by 'grafting' this section onto the receded gum area. The recovery time for this procedure can be significant because it is so invasive and it can also be very uncomfortable and even painful. This is one of the main reasons why Dr. Latif is now offering Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique at his dental practice in Columbus.
Dr. John Chao, an acclaimed dentist, patented the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. Dr. Chao personally trained and certified Dr. Latif to perform the procedure. This procedure involves restoring a patient's gum line to a position that is natural and healthy by using a pinhole opening that is only 0.1 inch. Receding gums affect 50% of the population and Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique in Columbus, OH can eliminate this problem. This patented technique moves the gum tissues but unlike gum grafting it requires no incisions and no stitches. This makes the procedure almost pain free and no recovery time is needed, which means patients will be able to speak and eat normally almost immediately.
Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique in Columbus, Ohio means there is no longer any need to treat gum recession by cutting into the roof of the mouth and the gums, which can cause a great deal of discomfort just for this to be followed by stitching and a recovery that can take up to three weeks, which will cause further inconvenience for the patient.
Patients in Columbus, OH no longer need to suffer from the discomfort that sensitive teeth can bring, or to be embarrassed about smiling due to receding gums.
