Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique™ – A breakthrough treatment for gum recession
Do you currently have receding gums?
The thought of undergoing any type of dental surgery can be daunting for patients, as it is typically associated with pain and a long recovery. As a result, many people are discouraged from seeking treatment, causing their oral conditions to escalate to more severe levels. Gum recession is one of these problems that is often left untreated and allowed to worsen over time.
The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST®™) – invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S. – is an incision-free, suture-free procedure for treating gum recession. Through a small pinhole made by a needle, specialists trained in this method use specially designed instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue and glide it over the receded part of the tooth. 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.
We are pleased to have a Periodontist on staff who is specialty trained to do this precision PST surgical technique. Call us today to learn more about how we can solve your gum recession with this minimally invasive technique.
