Gum recession breakthrough treatment 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.
This procedure is performed by making a small hole with a needle in the gum tissue. Using specially designed instruments, the gum tissue is loosened and guided over the receeded part of the tooth. Since there is no incision or suturing, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling, and bleeding).
Most patient are also pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
