Have you noticed your gums are receding? Dr. Hamin, your Winnipeg dentist, is now offering a simple procedure to help reverse gum recession!
Dr. Ken Hamin and your Reflections Dental team in Winnipeg, are excited to offer the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. This simple procedure is minimally invasive and is a comfortable alternative to traditional gum grafting. We may recommend this procedure if you have moderate to severe gum recession. You may experiencing recession if your gums have pulled noticeably away from your teeth, exposing more of the body of the tooth.
Gum recession can happen naturally over time and may be caused by a number of different things; from rough brushing, to genetics to gum disease. First, Dr. Hamin will examine your teeth and gums to identify your problem areas, and explain to you the realistic results you can expect from the procedure.
During your appointment Dr. Hamin will use a specially designed instrument to gently guide the gums over the receded part of the tooth. There are no incisions and you can expect to notice an immediate change in the appearance of your gums. Should you have any questions don't hesitate to contact one of our team members for more information.
