We at Dr. Yu and Associates, believe in the overall welfare of our patients but also advocate doing our part to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Following the mandate from Governor Abbott and the Texas Board of Dental Examiners, we are following distancing guidelines. This includes minimizing the number of patients and team members in the practice at one time. Also, patients are being treated one at a time on a personalized basis. We do require that patients wear face masks and screen themselves prior to visiting. Thank you for your understanding.
Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique®
Dr. Yu is the first and only periodontist in Central Texas trained and certified to perform the patented Chao PinholeTM Surgical Technique. This procedure is performed by making a small hole with a needle in the gum tissue. Using specially designed, patented instruments, the gum tissue is loosened, collagen strips are placed and guided over the receded part of the teeth. Since there is no incision or suturing, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding). Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
