Restore Health to Your Mouth With Gum Recession Surgery in Highland, MI

Your gums are supposed to cover the roots of your teeth. And when you smile, people should be able to see a little bit of your gums. When your gums start to recede, however, bigger problems could be ahead if you don’t take steps to repair the damage. Using the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, Dr. LoCascio has saved the gums of many area patients.

Dr. LoCascio was the first Michigan general dentist to be trained in the Chao technique. With this innovative gum recession surgery in Highland, he can:

  • Restore your gums to health without a scalpel or sutures
  • Beautify your smile and increase your confidence
  • Shorten your recovery time over more invasive gum surgery
  • Reduce your sensitivity to heat and cold
  • Help you prevent serious infection in your gums

If your gums are receding, call Highland Advanced Dental Care today for an oral surgery consultation: 248-329-3552. Our office is located at 2950 East Highland Road, not far from Duck Lake Pines Park.

Get Fast & Comfortable Treatment With the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique

With the Chao gum recession procedure, Dr. LoCascio makes a pinhole in your receding gums, then gently moves the gum tissue around to cover the parts of the tooth where the gums have receded.

The pinhole technique is:

  • Fast and Effective – Unlike traditional gum surgery, it can often be completed in just one visit.
  • More Comfortable – There’s no cutting or suturing, meaning you’ll be more comfortable during the procedure and afterward. You’ll heal much faster too.

Save Your Smile With Our Gum Care Expertise

Besides surgery, there are several other ways we can help with gum recession. During your routine checkups, we can teach you the difference between healthy brushing and flossing and the aggressive kind that can damage your gums. One thing to remember is to always use a soft-bristled brush.

If you’re experiencing the early stages of gum disease, we can use a technique called scaling and root planing to remove harmful bacteria at and below the gumline, giving your gums a chance to heal.

If your gums look like they are receding, call us at 248-329-3552 to see if you need gum recession surgery in Highland. You can also request an appointment online.
