Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST) is a minimally invasive procedure that is used to treat gum recession without the need for traditional gum grafting surgery. Gum recession occurs when the gum tissue around the teeth pulls away from the tooth, exposing the root and making the tooth more susceptible to decay and other oral health problems.

The PST procedure involves making a small pinhole in the gum tissue, through which the gum tissue is then gently loosened and repositioned over the exposed tooth root. This creates a new gumline that covers the exposed root and provides protection against further recession.

One of the main benefits of the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is that it is minimally invasive, which means that there is no need for sutures or incisions. This can result in less discomfort and a faster recovery time compared to traditional gum grafting surgery.

The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and can be completed in a single visit to the dentist. Most patients are able to return to their normal daily activities immediately following the procedure.

If you are experiencing gum recession, the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique may be an effective treatment option for you. To find out if you are a candidate for this procedure, you should consult with a qualified dental professional who has experience with the PST technique.
