One of the telltale signs of gum disease is a receding gum line. Receding gums can lead to a variety of issues, including sensitive teeth, tooth damage and decay, and tooth loss. While most gum-recession treatments involve surgery, Dr. Niloufer Hamsayeh is pleased to offer a state-of-the-art treatment for our patients with gum recession: the Chao Pinhole® Technique. This procedure can reduce your pockets and restore your proper gum line with a scalpel- and stitch-free procedure. This means that you do not have to worry about unattractive stitches or long recovery time before fully enjoying your smile again. To learn more about how we use the Chao Pinhole Technique in San Francisco, California, we invite you to call us today at 415.682.6377.
