Chao Pinhole® Technique

Creative Smile Dental is committed to providing high-quality periodontal care. We stay current on the latest techniques, and combining that with our expertise allows our team to offer excellent periodontal treatment. Drs. Katlyn and Paul Nguyen have over two decades of experience and utilize the most innovative methods available in the field of dentistry.

Chao Pinhole® Gum Rejuvenation

The Chao Pinhole® is a modern technique used for gum rejuvenation. Conventional gum restorations require unsightly stitching, but the Pinhole Surgery Technique (PST) is suture-free and accompanied by minimal post-operative symptoms. This method, created by John Chao, DDS, enlarges the gums through only one pinhole-sized entry.  

Gum Recession: How it Occurs

As we age, the gum line naturally recedes. This is more prominent for some people than for others. Whether you have all your natural teeth or existing dental restorations (such as crowns, bridges, and implants), this technique can restore uniformity to your gum line and protect any exposed tooth roots. Gum rejuvenation keeps the smile looking young and healthy.

The gum line may reduce in length and girth after incurring damage from periodontal disease. Gingivitis, periodontitis, and untreated decay can all noticeably affect the health of your gums. The caring staff at Creative Smile Dental can restore your gum line as well as prevent further complications from occurring.

Preventive Care

Our compassionate Fremont dentists do their best to prevent periodontal disease from developing. We offer scaling and root planing, otherwise known as a deep cleaning, for patients who exhibit preliminary signs of gum disease. This advanced treatment option is often effective at halting periodontal disease in the early stages, preventing the need for more invasive surgical solutions in the future.

Why Periodontology?

Periodontology focuses on the structures supporting the teeth. These structures include bones and the ligaments that attach teeth to the bones, but especially the gums. If these structures are not healthy, the teeth they support won’t be healthy either. Regular periodontal care and at-home maintenance is a great way to maintain a healthy smile.
