Dr. Philip Goduco Performs the Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation in Chicago
Patients experience a great level of comfort after surgery and have minimal post-operative symptoms since there are no stitches or incisions made. In addition, the majority of patients experience cosmetic improvement instantly.
Your gums have a certain level at which they should remain, but vigorous brushing and normal aging often causes gum recession. When your gums recede, it exposes the root and makes your gums more sensitive to hot and cold. It can also cause pain, since your nerve can be hurt. Traditionally, gum recession was corrected by getting a connective tissue graft, in which tissue from the roof of your mouth was cut and moved to the gum area that was receding. At the point of the gum recession, incisions were made and the donor tissue is sutured to the overlaying gum tissue. This method had a recovery period of 3-4 weeks, and was quite painful for patients. In addition, there were cases where the surgery did not take.
Dr. Goduco, who has a practice in Vernon Hills, Illinois, has been performing dental surgery for over 30 years. He strives to find the most pain free procedures for his patients, and the Pinhole Surgical Technique is one of those procedures. There is no cutting involved, and there are no sutures necessary, which makes it minimally invasive. There is no pain for the patients and this procedure only has a recovery period of one week. In addition to all of these benefits, most insurance companies will cover this procedure under their dental plan.
Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation
During the Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation, a small pinhole is made after being numbed with a local anesthetic and Dr. Goduco uses instruments that were specially designed to loosen the gum tissue and move it over the exposed part of the tooth. He then places small collagen strips through the entry point and positions them back under the gums. Collagen helps the gums to remain in place during the healing process. This procedure allows patients to experience a great level of comfort afterwards, and they have very minimal post-operative symptoms since there are no incisions or stitches required. The entire procedure takes only around 20 minutes to an hour, depending on how many teeth are being treated. In addition, the majority of patients experience cosmetic improvement instantly.
