Also known as the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique® (PST), the technique is changing the way general dentists and periodontists are treating their patients for receding gums.
Until recently many patients diagnosed with gum recession would decline having treatment rather than undergo conventional gum grafting surgery which requires cutting of donor tissue from the roof of the mouth and grafting the tissue to cover the receded areas using sutures. With the “Pinhole”® procedure a doctor can correct receding gums without cutting or sutures and with little or no downtime required. There is virtually no pain or bleeding and there is instant transformation of the defective gum line.
Once patients learn that their gum recession can be reversed without any cutting or stitches they feel more comfortable about accepting necessary treatment. To date, over 1,500 doctors from across the country and around the world have been trained in PST by inventor Dr. John Chao at the Pinhole Academy in Alhambra, CA with additional doctors attending training seminars scheduled on an ongoing basis.
The simplicity and ease of the Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique® is encouraging patients all over the world to have needed treatment for gum recession. For more information on PST, information contact us our office at (855) 76S-MILE (855-767-6453).
