Chao Pinhole® Technique
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST) is a comfortable, minimally-invasive, scalpel and suture-free technique for treating gum recession. Up to 84% of adults suffer from gum recession which can result in long and ugly teeth, sensitive roots and ultimately tooth loss. Traditional methods of treatment involve removing tissue from the palate and using sutures to secure it over root surfaces. An alternative to this approach is to utilize the existing gums around the teeth with recession and elevating them with a minimally invasive technique and using collagen to maintain the new tissue over the exposed roots. This treatment may be more suitable to your needs dependent on the issues present. Call us today to make an appointment for an evaluation!
