Gum recession – new technique for therapy
Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation for Gum Recession
A few weeks ago I introduced you to a new technique for treating gum recession with less pain. It’s called Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation and I am now certified to perform this gentle procedure. Read here for the full blog post that explains the procedure and how in most cases it can replace the old method that involves cutting, suturing and grafting. This minimally invasive treatment was recently featured on “The Doctors” TV show and the inventor and my instructor, Dr. John Chao, introduced the audience to a patient of his and showed us how he helped her receding gums. Click on the link below to go to our YouTube page for the video. I hope that after you watch this, you will see that you too, or someone you love, can have the same excellent results that Rocio did on this video, all scalpel free, suture free, and graft free.

If you look at the picture below, this is what receding gums look like:
