Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation

Dr. Cuong Phan Performs the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique in Orlando, Florida which can Help with Gum Rejuvenation.

Gum recession breakthrough treatment is also known as Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation™ and Lunchtime Gum Lift™.

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®), invented and patented by John Chao, D.D.S., is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for treating gum recession.

How Does it Work?

A dentist performs this procedure, making a small hole with a needle in the gum tissue. Using specially designed instruments, the gum tissue is loosened and guided 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.

Frequently Asked Questions for Gum Rejuvenation

What is gum recession?

Gum recession refers to the loss of gum tissue along the gumline. This can occur as a result of periodontal disease (gingivitis, periodontitis, advanced periodontitis), the natural aging process, or abrasive habits when it comes to brushing the teeth.

Why should you take gum recession seriously?

When gum recession occurs, the root structure of the tooth becomes exposed. This means that tooth decay and other problems can affect the teeth along the gumline and beneath it. Since healthy gums are essential for a healthy mouth, treating your gum recession is important for lasting dental wellness.

What is Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique?

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive option for treating gum recession. Unlike traditional grafting techniques, PST is scalpel and suture free.
Dr. John Chao created all of the tools and techniques used to perform the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique.

How does Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique differ from traditional gum grafting?

Traditional gum recession treatments involve the use of donor tissue or soft tissue grafts in order to rebuild the gumline. A doctor sutures this soft tissue in place and joins it with existing gum tissue as it heals. While this traditional grafting treatment is effective, comparable results with better patient experience can be achieved through this Pinhole Gum treatment.

How is Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique performed?

During the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique, the dentist uses a needle to make a small hole in the patient's existing gum tissue. Through this pinhole gum rejuvenation, we use special instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue. These tools help expand and slide the gumline to cover the exposed root structure. There are no grafts, no sutures, and no incisions needed with the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique. It simply involves the adjustment of the existing tissue.

What are the benefits of Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique?

The benefits of the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique are many:

  • Less Discomfort for the patient after treatment.
  • Faster recovery for the patient than traditional grafting.
  • No need for:
    • uncomfortable sutures.
    • scalpels or invasive surgical tools.
    • donor tissue from the patient's palate.
  • Excellent, natural-looking, long-lasting results.
