"This was the second time I had to get a mold for dentures. The first time at another place had been a terrible ordeal because I had to gag constantly. At Bella Vita this was not the case. Dr Foreman and his Dental Assistant Rachel did such a fantastic job that I never gagged and the mold was done in one try. What a pleasant experience that was. Bella Vita is a very unique dental office. The staff is extremely friendly, Dr. Foreman is the most gentle dentist I have ever been to. He listened to my concerns, and put me at ease, so that I knew immediately that I had come to the right place. He also knew about a horseshoe upper denture, which will eliminate all the gagging without implants, avoid unpleasant surgery and save a lot of money. I highly recommend Bella Vita. I will never go to another dentist."- G.M. / Google / Mar 23, 2018

How It Works
If you have been diagnosed with gum disease in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, there is a good chance you may have some degree of gum recession. Restore the beauty of your smile with receding gums treatment using the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique instead of tradition gum grafting. This is a minimally invasive procedure that can be very effective for returning your gum line to a healthy position and beautifying your smile. Instead of excising a section of the palette (gum grafting) to put under the gum line with many sutures holding it in place for healing, the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique makes one small opening above the concerning gum line. Dr. Foreman will push the soft tissue back into place, covering the teeth with the gums in a more natural position. He will also insert collagen strips within the gums via the space above each tooth treated. There are no stitches and no downtime for the patient.
Benefits of Treatment
Dr. Foreman performs the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique without making any incisions in the tissues. Since there is no such trauma to the gums, the recovery process is very fast and patients even enjoy immediate cosmetic benefits. He performs this procedure by gently repositioning existing gum tissue over the areas where the gums have receded. This technique is an attractive alternative to traditional gum recession surgery with soft tissue grafting procedures. Dr. Foreman can perform this as an outpatient procedure for patients with the following benefits:
- Fast recovery time
- Safe alternative to traditional gum surgery
- Restores your gum line
- Immediate cosmetic benefits
- No bleeding or swelling of the gums
Patients with gum recession can enjoy numerous benefits from the Chao Pinhole surgical technique. Whether the gums have receded after periodontal disease or because of any other trauma to the mouth, this technique can restore the gum line and enhance the smile.
After you have the treatment for receding gums, coming in for dental cleanings and oral checkups on schedule is one way to help prevent future gum recession and many other oral health issues. Using the proper tooth brushing technique, eating a well-balanced diet, and breaking teeth grinding habits can also help to prevent receding gums at any age. Taking good care of your oral health with a diligent brushing and flossing routine can reduce the risk of gum disease that may lead to gum recession or poor health.
