Many of us take our gums for granted. Aside from giving support to your teeth, they also protect your body against bacteria that can cause respiratory problems, coronary issues, and complications for diabetes. As your gums recede, more of your tooth is exposed to decay, and that includes the roots. So, the problem of receding gums is a serious one that needs treatment by your dentist.
At Dental Professionals LLC, we are proud to offer Chao Pinhole® surgery in Derby, Kansas to treat receding gums. In the past, traditional gum disease treatments have consisted of grafting tissue over the gums. With the Chao Pinhole® technique, a tiny hole is made in the gum tissue, which is then loosened and used to cover the exposed area. This method eliminates the need for grafts and sutures, requires less recovery time and results in less discomfort for the patient. Our dentist, Dr. Bo Zhang is trained in the Chao Pinhole® technique, and will be happy to see you for a consultation. If you would like to find out of Chao Pinhole® surgery is right for you, contact us at 316-788-2118. Receding gums are too important to be ignored, so call us today to plan your consultation.
