What can be done to restore the gum line to its normal position?  First of all, the possible causes of gum recession must be dealt with.  Proper brushing habits must be taught and learned.  Bite guards should be worn consistently, if clenching and grinding is habitual.  Periodontitis must be treated and then controlled by good home care followed by regular dental maintenance visits as prescribed. 
Secondly, a “root coverage” procedure can be considered.  There are a variety of surgical procedures to restore the gum line to its original position.  The “gold standard” is the “connective tissue graft.” 

Dr. Chao is the inventor of a soon-to-be published “breakthrough” method designed to treat gum recession in a minimally invasive way with minimal postoperative symptoms and without palatal grafting.  Trademark and pending patents have been obtained both for the instruments as well as the method.    It is expected that this method will be published world-wide in the near future.  At this time this ground-breaking method of treating gum recession is only available at Dr. Chao’s office for selected patients.   Prospective patients are invited to call our office at 626-308-9104 for important information.
