Gum Grafting and Gum Graft Alternatives
Gum grafting typically involves taking gum tissue from an area in your mouth or using tissue from a human or animal donor. The results rapidly give your teeth the protection from decay that they need to stay fit and supported. Not only will your mouth function beautifully, but your smile will be more beautiful, too!
Patients at our facility who are candidates for the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique can enjoy an alternative to a gum graft. The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique involves making a tiny hole at the site where the gum recession is affecting the mouth. Through the hole, the dentist safely and expertly moves the existing gum tissue into place to cover any exposed tooth root. Not only can the results be seen immediately, but recovery is rapid and comfortable.
