Sometimes it IS Nice to Fool Mother Nature!

Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Gives You Back What Mother Nature Intended!

As the commercial in the 1970’s stated, “It’s not nice to fool Mother Nature”, and can be true for so many things but when it comes to unsightly and painful gum recession it can certainly be a benefit to do so! Gum recession is not a natural occurrence nor is it something Mother Nature would want for us since it can at times be a debilitating condition. So how it should be addressed is in a natural and gentle way such as with the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Procedure. Conventional treatment entails cutting, scraping and stitching which is certainly not natural. One of the reasons receding gums can occur is when gum disease is present. And since gum disease is a virtual epidemic in this country, chances are that receding gums can become a real danger to your smile. Also if you’re grinding your teeth, this is something that very often can cause lots of recession.

When gums recede, you lose the supporting bone which can potentially jeopardize the long-term health of the teeth. Losing the gum and bone around a tooth exposes the roots of the teeth which can cause significant sensitivity to temperature and touch which, in turn, can affect the quality of life. Having exposed root surfaces can also put you at significant risk of getting root decay which is very difficult to repair.

As mentioned earlier, the traditional treatment for receding gums, gum grafting, is not only quite painful, it also requires the use of incisions and stitches which extends the healing time. Not a good solution!

A much better, healthier and longer-lasting way to treat receding gums is the Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation procedure, discovered by Dr. John Chao, which is a revolutionary treatment that counts years of success in treating gum recession. This procedure consists of creating a tiny hole in the gum tissue above the tooth and reposition it to cover the root. It is quick, easy, and relatively pain-free, especially when compared to soft tissue grafting. We have many testimonials from patients who are very happy with the procedure and their results which are immediate; you see the positive results before you even leave the office.

Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation can be completed in a single visit, often in as little as an hour or two, and requires no general anesthesia or sedation (although localized numbing agents will be administered). In addition, healing time is minimal and regular activities can be resumed almost immediately. There is very little risk of complications. Issues like bleeding, swelling, pain, and infection following this procedure are far rarer than with grafts, and patients can see the results of the procedure immediately.

Dr. Gashinsky is one of a select few doctors in the United States who can perform this virtually painless alternative to gum grafting, thereby eliminating the need for painful and debilitating surgery.
