Weninger Dentistry Offers Minimally Invasive Chao Pinhole® Gum Recession Treatment in Tampa, Florida

Dr. Scott Weninger is a Certified Pinhole Clinician and your Tampa source for the breakthrough gum recession treatment known as Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ and Lunchtime Gum Lift™

Gum recession is a serious condition which involves the loss of gum tissue along the gum line. This loss of gum can lead to decay on the root surfaces and further bone loss or tissue loss if left untreated. Gum recession can occur due to aging, periodontal disease, teeth grinding, aggressive brushing & even from having orthodontic treatment.

A breakthrough treatment for gum recession, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®) is a new scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for treating gum recession. Traditional gum recession treatments require the use of soft tissue grafts or donor tissue to rebuild the gum line. The soft tissue is sutured in place and joins existing gum tissue as it healed. Though this traditional grafting treatment is effective, the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique allows comparable results to be achieved with better patient experience.

This procedure is performed by making a small hole with a needle in the gum tissue. Using specially developed instruments, the gum tissue is loosened and guided over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no incision or suturing patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms such as pain, swelling, and bleeding. In most cases, patients have reported seeing an instant cosmetic improvement.
