Pinhole Surgical Technique
The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique 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-operative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding). Most patients also are pleasantly surprised by the instant cosmetic improvement.
