“New Jersey residents with receding gums now have a minimally invasive alternative to conventional gum grafting,” says Dr. Vladimir Gashinsky. The treatment, Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ is performed through tiny “pinholes” made in the gums, without the need for cutting and grafting gum tissue. “Although receding gums can cause tooth sensitivity, lead to eventual tooth loss and make a person look older, the percentage of patients who undergo gum grafting surgery is low,” says Dr. Gashinsky. “Many patients see conventional gum grafting as an invasive procedure which requires considerable downtime.”
Dr. Gashinsky is a well – known holistic dentist. His practice, Holistic Dental Center is located in Milburn, NJ. The philosophy of
holistic or biological dental medicine involves taking a different approach to the practice of dentistry. It means looking at the patient as a whole person and addressing any dental issues from that perspective. “We put an emphasis on a more natural or holistic approach to dentistry,“ says Dr. Gashinsky. “This minimally invasive treatment for receding gums fits perfectly with our mission to provide our patients with the best possible dental care.”
“Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™, also known as the Pinhole Surgical Technique™ takes just a few minutes per tooth and most importantly multiple teeth may be treated at the same time, allowing patients to again have healthy, normal-looking gums with a minimum of inconvenience or downtime,” says Dr. Gashinsky. “Receding gums can be caused by excessive tooth brushing, gum disease or by the normal aging process. Many people are unaware of their gum recession until their teeth become sensitive while many are unhappy with the appearance of their receding gums. Treatment of receding gums is also important because when the gums recede, so does the bone that supports the teeth. As the gums shrink, bone is lost, increasing the chances of tooth loss.”
To correct gum recession without cutting or stitches, Dr. Gashinsky numbs the area to be treated, then he makes one or more small “pinholes” in the gums near the teeth with recession. Next he uses specially designed dental instruments which are inserted into the pinholes and moved to free the gum tissue. The gums are moved down to a their proper position for root coverage. Dr. Gashinsky then places tiny collagen strips through the pinholes to keep the gums in place as new collagen is formed. The pinholes heal quickly and are virtually usually undetectable in a day or two.
