When your gum recedes, you are more at risk of tooth decay due to the root being exposed. Gaps and pockets begin to form and allow bacteria to pool and destroy the tooth. Early detection is critical in this situation. We are proud to be one of the only practices to offer the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique, which is a scalpel-, suture-, and graft-free procedure used for correcting gum recession.
We can correct receding gums in as little as one treatment session with minimal discomfort to you. Most patients are back to normal light activities within a day or two of the procedure. If you’re interested in this state-of-the-art method to protect your teeth and enhance a more youthful and attractive look, contact us today at 985-532-3480, and we will be happy to discuss your options.
