Gum Recession Treatment in
Bakersfield and Visalia
Get back a youthful, confident smile with the Chao Pinhole® Technique
Receding gums can age a smile, making a person look prematurely old. It can also cause root sensitivity and expose the teeth to decay. Dr. Sanger provides gum recession treatment using the minimally invasive Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique. Using this technique, she is able to treat gum recession quickly and with minimal discomfort.
What Causes Gum Recession?
Gum recession is the exposure of the tooth roots, caused by the gums retracting. It is most commonly a result of factors such as overly aggressive brushing or flossing, teeth grinding, gum disease, tooth misalignment, trauma to gum tissue and genetic factors.
Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique—Quick and Easy with Immediate Results
The Pinhole technique does not involve tissue grafting, scalpels or stitches. Dr. Sanger makes a tiny hole in the gum and uses a special micro-instrument to gently loosen and reposition your own gum tissue to cover the exposed tooth root.
You can see immediate improvement and experience very minimal post-treatment discomfort. The procedure can be completed in just one to two hours. It has been shown in studies to yield uniformly good and lasting results.
