Dr. Iacobelli talks about Gum Recession treatment

5-stars Iacobelli DSS North Royalton, OH
​”I needed extensive dental work, including oral surgery and periodontal work, to restore my teeth and gums to a healthy state. All of this was done with the gentleness and kindness Dr. Mark provides, and I am thankful I found my way to his practice.”

Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique

Dr. Mark Iacobelli and Dr. Stephen Sala are proud to provide the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST™) for their patients in North Royalton, OH. Instead of surgically grafting gum tissue from another site in your mouth, PST™ uses a tiny pinhole in your gums to reposition your remaining gum tissue so that the root of your tooth is once again covered. Multiple teeth can be treated during one visit so multiple visits may not be necessary. In addition, no sutures are required and the recovery time is remarkably fast.

Minimally Invasive Technology

Advances in dental techniques are now reducing the need for invasive surgeries. Minimally invasive techniques like the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique allow Dr. Iacobelli and Dr. Sala to provide effective dental treatments with less pain, less bleeding, and a faster recovery time. Most patients can return to normal activities the day after the procedure!
