Return Gums to Health With Gum Recession in Plano
Receding gums can expose your tooth roots, marring your smile’s appearance and creating tooth sensitivity. They also make you more susceptible to tooth and bone loss and dental decay. Fortunately, we offer gum recession treatment in Plano, TX to return your gums – and the rest of your mouth – to health. You won’t have to spend time driving to another office and getting treated from someone you don’t know since our specialist can handle your care right here.
Our treatments for receding gums will:
- Halt further gum recession.
- Cover exposed tooth roots, reducing sensitivity.
- Restore your smile’s healthy appearance.

- Be performed by a board-certified periodontist.
If your gums are receding, call us today.
Choose the Right Kind of Procedure For Your Gum Health
We use two different techniques to treat gum recession. We can use a traditional gum graft to replace your missing gum tissue. If you’ve lost bone as well, we can place a material to spur new bone growth at the site. Our periodontist is also certified to perform a procedure called the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.
Unlike a gum graft, no cutting or stitches are necessary with the pinhole technique. The procedure can be completed in about an hour, much faster than a graft, and healing is faster too. As convenient as that is, it’s even more so with our extended hours. You can schedule your procedure as early as 7:30 a.m. or even on a Saturday!
Don’t Ignore Gum Disease Symptoms
Gum disease is often the cause of receding gums. Bacteria gets in between the teeth and gums, causing gums to pull away from teeth. Our gum disease treatment will prevent the disease from advancing to that stage, where tooth loss can occur. We use a deep cleaning process called scaling and root planing, as well as applications of antibiotic.
Our goal is to help you keep a full, healthy smile for life and prevent tooth loss whenever possible. Call us ASAP if you’re experiencing any of these gum disease symptoms:
- Tender gums
- Pain while chewing
- Gums that bleed, when brushing teeth or at other times
- Gums that appear red instead of pink
- Bad breath that won’t go away

"I moved here in January 2021 and had to find a new dentist of course. With so many dental offices around, I picked this dentist because it was nearby my place, plus he had good reviews online. So far I’ve gone in twice for regular teeth cleaning and the staff is very friendly and thorough. The office is also very modernized and they have the most up-to-date tools to carefully evaluate my teeth and health. I would highly recommend this dentist office"- C.T. / Google / Sep 16, 2021
