Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Surgery
It is a minimally invasive way to stabilize, and reverse, the effect of gum recession - which can be a major cause of tooth sensitivity, and even tooth loss.
The Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique/ Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation invented and patented by Dr. John Chao, is a scalpel-free, suture-free procedure for treating gum recession.
This procedure is performed by making small holes 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 cutting or stitching, patients can expect minimal post-op symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding). Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
