Pinhole® Surgical Technique tm

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST), is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for correcting gum recession. Through a small hole made by a needle, we use specially designed instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue and glide it over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no cutting or stitching, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding). Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
