Gum Rejuvenation at Red Hill Dental

Older couple smilingIf you have experienced the loss of gum tissue along the gumline, then you have gum recession. There are many causes of this condition: periodontal disease (e.g., gingivitis, periodontitis or advanced periodontitis), the natural ageing process, or brushing the teeth too forcefully.

Seeking Treatment Is Vital

Due to the tooth’s root structure being exposed with gum recession, you may experience tooth decay and other issues that can impact the teeth along and underneath the gumline. Having healthy, pink gums is critical when it comes to maintaining optimal oral health; that’s why it’s essential to get gum recession treated as soon as possible.

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Gum Rejuvenation Technique (PST™)

Chad Pinhole logoAt Red Hill Dental, we are pleased to offer patients the innovative Chao Pinhole Surgical Gum Rejuvenation Technique. Dr Henry Ho is only one of a few dental surgeons in Australia who is qualified to perform this revolutionary method.

The technique involves using a needle to create a small hole in a patient’s existing gum tissue. Through this tiny hole, Dr Henry uses specialised instruments to carefully release the gum tissue. He uses these tools to help enlarge and slide the gumline to cover the unprotected root structure.

An array of benefits is associated with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Gum Rejuvenation Technique:

  • Minimal post-treatment discomfort
  • Quicker recovery time versus conventional grafting
  • Uncomfortable sutures or incisions aren’t required
  • Surgical tools such as scalpels aren’t used
  • Tissue from the patient’s palate isn’t required
  • The results are natural-looking and long-lasting
