Learn About the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique

Dr. James LoCascio was the first Michigan general dentist to be trained in the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique for gum recession. In this procedure, he makes a pinhole in the 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 very fast and effective, and it can often be completed in just one visit. And with this procedure, there’s no cutting or suturing, meaning you will heal much faster.

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-bristle brush.

If you’re experiencing the early stages of gum disease, we can use a technique called root planing and scaling 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 for a gum recession surgery consultation. You can also use our handy online form.
