Pinhole Surgery: A Breakthrough Treatment for Gum Recession

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. This allows for a less painful process to stop gum recession.

Why Should Gum Recession Be Taken 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, getting gum recession treated is important for lasting dental wellness.

Quick and Easy Gum Restoration

During the Pinhole Surgical Technique, a needle is used to make a small hole in the patient’s existing gum tissue. Through this pinhole, special instruments are used to gently loosen the gum tissue.

These tools help expand and slide the gumline to cover the exposed root structure.
