Chao Pinhole® Surgery Technique Columbus, OH

For people who have problems with their gums receding, or have had that problem in the past, there is a new procedure known as, The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique™, that could make it a problem of the past. Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique in Columbus, OH will solve the problem of gum recession for you without the need for several weeks recovery time.

It is Dr. Sam Latif who brought, The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, to Columbus, OH. The technique has been available for a while on the west coast, where Dr. John Chao introduced it. Dr. Latif is based right in the heart of Columbus, Ohio, where he does Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique in his state of the art dental office. As he often tells patients, “do not make the mistake of thinking it is a rare condition, nearly half of the population have suffered from it at one time, or another.” It can be an extremely embarrassing condition to suffer from and people can lose their self-confidence because they are embarrassed about their smile.

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is now available in Columbus, OH at Sam Latif, DMD, FMII, FICOI. The basic concept is simple; the gum line is moved without the need for grafting gum from somewhere else in the patient's mouth. The dentist does not even need to cut into the gum or get blood everywhere. With no cutting there is no need to stitch a patient's mouth nor does the patient need to take time off work, as there is no need for a period of recuperation. The procedure is also known as the Lunchtime Gum Lift™, because it can often be completed in an hour or less.

Pinhole® gum surgery is better known as the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, and it was actually patented by Dr. Chao, who has taught the procedure to Dr. Sam Latif and other top dentists. Using the latest pinhole camera technology, a tiny hole is put in the patient's gum, yet the hole is large enough to move the gum line to end recession for good. On average the pinhole only measures a mere 0.1-inch in diameter and it heals almost immediately.

Dr. Sam Latif has spent a lot of time training with Dr. Chao to carry out the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique on happy patients. Now all that experience will benefit dental patients that visit Dr. Latif's dental office, the best dental practice in Columbus, OH and the surrounding area too.

If you live in or around the Columbus area do not allow the problem of receding gums make your life a misery, a life full of painfully sensitive teeth and lower self-confidence. Instead call Dr. Latif today to arrange your free consultation as quickly as possible.
