Dentist invents new technique to treat gum recession
KING-TV via KTVB-TV
While painful surgery used to be the only way to treat receding gums, one dentist is trying another way. Dr. John Chao has developed a new, nearly painless procedure called the pinhole surgical technique to help those with gum recession. Gum grafting, the conventional treatment of choice for receding gums, is painful. Dentists cut and remove tissue from the roof of the mouth and then graft it onto the receded gum.
