What is gum recession?
Gum recession refers to the loss of gum tissue along the gumline. This can occur as a result ofツperiodontal disease (gingivitis, periodontitis, advanced periodontitis), the natural aging process, or
abrasive habits when it comes to brushing the teeth.

Why should gum recession be taken seriously?
When gum recession occurs, the root structure of the tooth becomes exposed. This means that toothツdecay and other problems can affect the teeth along the gumline and beneath it. Since healthy gums areツessential for a healthy mouth, getting gum recession treated is important for lasting dental wellness.

What is the Chao Pinholeツョ Surgical Technique (PST)?
The Chao Pinholeツョ Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive option for treating gum recession. Unlike
traditional grafting techniques, PST is incision and suture free.ツAll of the tools and techniques used to perform the Chao Pinholeツョ Surgical Technique were created byツDr. John Chao, and who trained our doctor.

How does the Chao Pinholeツョ Surgical Technique (PST) differ from traditional gum grafting?
Traditional gum recession treatments involve the use of donor tissue or soft tissue grafts in order toツrebuild the gumline. This soft tissue would be sutured in place and would join with existing gum tissue asツit healed.ツWhile this traditional grafting treatment is effective, comparable results with better patient experienceツcan be achieved through the Chao Pinholeツョ Surgical Technique.

How is Chao Pinholeツョ Surgical Technique (PST) performed?
During the Chao Pinholeツョ Surgical Technique, a needle is used to make a small hole in the patient窶冱ツexisting gum tissue. Through this pinhole, special instruments are used to gently loosen the gum tissue.ツThese tools help expand and slide the gumline to cover the exposed root structure.ツThere are no grafts, no sutures, and no incisions needed with the Chao Pinholeツョ Surgical Technique. Itツsimply involves the adjustment of the existing tissue.

What are the benefits of Chao Pinholeツョ Surgical Technique (PST)?
The benefits of the Chao Pinholeツョ Surgical Technique are many:
窶「 Less discomfort for the patient after treatment
窶「 Faster recovery for the patient than traditional grafting
窶「 No need for uncomfortable sutures
窶「 No need for scalpels or invasive surgical tools
窶「 No need to take donor tissue from the patient窶冱 palate
窶「 Excellent, natural-looking, long-lasting results
