Receding Gums? Sensitive Teeth?
The Alternative to Gum Grafting, The Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ Technique!
How Common Are Receding Gums?
Dr. Gashinsky estimates about 50% of the population has some form of gum recession. This condition is present when the gum and the bone that supports the teeth migrate down the roots, exposing them.
This can affect anyone from teens to the elderly. The root exposure created by receding gums is the main cause of tooth sensitivity and a major cause for root decay.
For years the conventional way to treat this was to perform grafting surgery, as shown in the video above, by taking tissue from your palate or using artificial tissue and sewing it over the roots. This is usually painful and sometimes unpredictable.
Dr. Gashinsky is one of a select few doctors in the United States that can perform this virtually painless alternative to gum grafting, The Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation, eliminating the need for painful and debilitating surgery.
What Causes Receding Gums?
These are the most common causes of gum recession:
- Misaligned or crooked teeth
- Grinding and clenching of your teeth
- Gum disease
- Family history
- Brushing too hard
- What can I do about it?
Dr.Gashinsky is very excited to be able to offer the alternative to gum grafting, The Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation. This procedure allows Dr. G to gently lift the gum tissue through a small pinhole which he then drapes over the exposed roots. He then places collagen through the pinhole to secure the gums in place.
Over time your body replaces the collagen with your own, which allows you to have a secure zone of gum tissue.
