Pinhole® Surgical Gum Restorations
Dr. Julia Lee has extensive experience with Dr. Chao’s Pinhole® Surgical Technique Gum Rejuvenation. These techniques offer a virtually pain free option to correct gum recession.
Scalpel Free – Suture Free – Conventional Graft Free
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST), invented and patented by John Chao, DDS, MADG, is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for correcting gum recession. Through a small hole made by a needle, Dr. Chao uses specially designed instruments to gently loosen the gum tissue and glide it over the receded part of the tooth. Since there is no cutting or stitching, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding). Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
